The website is visual only, but to see a great article on the designer visit muse magazine.
Former costume designer Orondava Mumford is behind the fab label Clift NYC. The Pratt University grad made the leap from milking cows in North Carolina to designing from the heart of NY fashion in his soho studio. The collection features beautifully tailored pieces offset with tiny details; true to his costuming background the collection begins with the needs of the "character". Not that I needed a reason to be a fan but that's a good start.
