Winter Hoodies & Jackets For the new year!
Natalie Brown / NMB New York Bio:
Designer Natalie Brown founded her clothing brand “NMB New York” in October 2020. The brand is based on her thesis collection from Parsons School of Design, where she graduated in 2020 with honors in Fashion Design following an undergraduate degree in Art from Elon University. The Peachtree City, Georgia native now calls New York home. She started her brand with an aim to create clothing that allowed people to embrace their individuality, and feel empowered by what they wear; feel good, look good, and do good. Natalie wanted to create the clothing that she wanted to wear, but could not find. NMB New York designs are based on up cycling, meaning that we take thrifted/vintage/other clothing, deconstruct them, then use them as fabric to create new, upgraded NMB original clothing. No NMB piece of clothing looks the same, each is an original, giving every customer their own unique expression. NMB aims to rebrand the idea of up cycling, giving it a fresh edge and luxury feel, whilst making strides toward a fashionably cleaner world and a healthier environment. Reduced waste never looked so good.
BEHIND THE BRAND
We are three siblings born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela that immigrated to
the US in 2007. In the summer of 2019 we decided to start WHILE WE’RE aWAKE in a
place we also like to call home- Miami, Florida. WWA is our translation of the love we
have for style and art. When we came up with WHILE WE’RE aWAKe, we wanted to
make statement pieces while at the same time inspire people to treat each other better
and to never settle for less than their dreams.The best part of WWA is that each person
who comes upon our brand has their own interpretation of it and that is special to us
because we’re all on a different journey while we’re awake. We don’t only have a dope
name, we also have pieces that we hope make you feel cool and motivate you to start
smiling and enjoying life a little more.
