Study NY is defined by conceptual design & sustainability - we want to challenge preconceived ideas of fashion and design.

Study NY cuts & sews collections domestically using both ethical fabrics and production methods. We are vocal about our choice to use sustainable and ethical design principles, but we want to be judged the same way all brands are judged - by strength of design. We want to be as transparent our customer as possible. Our labels are designed to display all information - from fiber to manufacturing - about each product. 

Shortly after starting Study NY, Tara St James, the founder and designer, focused on educating the next generation of designers on the importance of sustainability in design. Tara has taught as a part of FIT‘s Sustainability Certificate, critiqued and lectured at Parsons, Pratt and FIT. Currently Tara is working as Production Coordinator and Research Fellow in the Sustainable Strategies Lab for Pratt’s new Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator


Here at Study New York we focus on every step of our products' journey. 


From field to cutting table, every part of a garment's process is carefully examined and controlled to be socially and environmentally conscious.


We support sustainable techniques and processes to better the fashion industry and the world.
