I can’t believe it has taken me this long to write about Jenny Gordy. Jenny & I shared a studio (along with Jennifer of Odette) for a year and she makes the most beautiful handmade clothes. Looking at her pieces and how well crafted and designed they are seriously puts the majority of store-bought clothes to shame. Rather than create a line of 25 pieces and hope one sticks, Jenny makes very few, but those few are reworked to perfection – and they sell out quickly. Jenny is meticulous in everything she does. She and her husband recently left Brooklyn to move to Iowa and I wondered how it would affect her business and inspiration being away from so many of her colleagues and the energy that NYC generates, but it is clearly working for her. It seems leaving the distractions of the city has really allowed her to focus and her work is better than ever. She has even opened up her very own curated shop of some of her favorite products.
