Established in the early 90s, Religion firmly rooted itself to early club culture; when music was chemically inspired and beliefs were publicly expressed on statement tees. Initially developed as a niche t-shirt range, Religion's blend of anarchic graphics and commercial attributes has pushed the brand to the forefront of the fashion and media spotlight.
Heidi Gardner’s creative desire and untamed imagination began during early childhood years spent in Buffalo, NY, where she grew up a classically trained ballerina. But by boarding school, she felt artistically repressed and suffocated by the surrounding overt conservatism. With an intense need for self-expression, Heidi became a prolific painter, and it was through this art that she was able to create without expectation and pressure. These paintings defined her point of view of life & death through a study of skeletal structures, often deformed or disassembled. This penchant for the macabre, enhanced by an adoration for Hieronymus Bosch, Salvador Dali, Otto Dix, Alfred Kubin and vintage thrillers, then became inspiration for Heidi’s esoteric jewelry collections. Each design stems from this original imaginary world.
Harare is a New York based designer womenswear label, founded in 2013 by Caroline Fuss. Named after the birthplace of both her mother and grandmother, Harare’s dynamic cultural heritage is woven into the brand just as much as the fabrics themselves. LINIE celebrates the sophistication of simplicity through a disciplined design process. By minimizing unnecessary cuts and seams with a one-pattern-piece theory, LINIE’s detail-oriented tailoring allows the fabric and body to express their purest forms. With a philosophy that underscores pattern and fabric as interdependent elements, LINIE brings body, style and garment into balance.
Founded in 2012, Wyatt Orr is the brainchild of Seattle based designers Liise Wyatt and Karly Orr.

Their contemporary urban aesthetic is clean and compelling, a marriage of the understated and the unexpected, subtle contrast and classic construction. Observers have characterized the line as intelligent and thoughtful.
