Ladies on Fire: Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie

Does the name Cushnie et Ochs ring any bells? It should. The collaborative label was launched in 2009 by two fierce ladies, Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie, destined to conquer the world of fashion. Maryland born and raised Ochs met British born Cushnie at Parsons The New School of Design and the two immediately clicked. Ochs already had a collection of Polo shirts, but by the time she and Carly started working together their individually unique styles intertwined and morphed into a chic and sophisticated fashion label demanded by celebrities. Stars like Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Zoe Saldana, Kristen Stewart, Reese Witherspoon, and Olivia Wilde are all devoted fans to the line. Sure their designs costs a week’s or month’s paycheck but one should always appreciate sensible fashion whenever you come across such.

It’s rather interesting how two women of two very different backgrounds can join forces and create something so spectacular. Many have asked how they make it work and whenever the question arises both would break it down in a cool way. On their designs, Cushnie says “the collection is a lot about skin-revealing it and concealing it. I’m attracted to strong lines and shapes that help sculpt the body.” And in regards to their individual style, Ochs clarifies “she can pull off anything feminine or what requires breasts. Sometimes I feel boyish.” 

Michelle and Carly hope to venture further in fashion by launching shoes, handbags, and accessories. But until then I’m sure they’re waiting for their clothing line to soak in for a few more years before taking on anything else. Until then, enjoy the simple yet edgy designs they have to offer. Check out my favorite designs from the label’s Resort 2013 collection below: Continue reading “Ladies on Fire: Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie”
