NYC Designer Samantha Pleet Charms with Her Fall 2008 Collection
The Philly native and Pratt alumna - who operates out of her hip Williamsburg, Brooklyn studio - was inspired this season by "traveling the world in search of beauty and mystery." Since childhood, she has "loved making clothes for all the various characters she and her friends could imagine and she still continues this practice today" with dandy-inspired tailored jackets with matching rompers, mini dresses, and tunics.
