Sarah Aphrodite
Womenswear + Accessories

The alter-egoed Dutch designer is a former Parsons teacher and a self-proclaimed Biggie lover who crafts luxury wear but also street staples. She cites “the Far East” as an influence and also describes her work as “trashy.” She collaborates with family-owned producers such as International Pleating but also manipulates sweatpants and oversized T-shirts. We love that she’s considering moving to Miami for the luxury wear circuit but that her current lookbook, shot by the distinctive Brianna Cappozi, couldn’t be a better fit for Bushwick. If these conflicting interests still aren’t enough to satisfy your post-postmodern mindset, how about the fact that her clients range from Blood Orange to Florence Welch? Watch her varied influences converge in the upcoming Fall Fashion Issue of Brooklyn Magazine (on stands Sep 1) on cover girl Alek Wek.
