New York designer Samantha Pleet grew up in the woods just outside of Philadelphia. She went on to establish her line of women's RTW in 2006, after graduating from Pratt Institute and apprenticeships at Harper's Bazaar and Three As Four. Pleet has since shown with Gen Art and Ecco Domani during New York Fashion Week. Pleet has established a cult following for her elegant otherworldly collections with indie musicians and creative dreamers around the world. Pleet hand drapes each style and creates custom prints, paying attention to construction, playing with classic silhouettes, historical references, and then twisting them into modernity. Since Fall 2012 she has been designing an ongoing collection of shoes and boots in collaboration with the American heritage brand Wolverine. You can find Pleet's clothing at top retailers around the world.
