Born and raised in Canada, Tara St James has lived in Brooklyn, New York since 2004. After graduating with a degree in menswear tailoring she has been designing both men’s and womenswear ever since. After deciding to launch her own label, a women’s ready to wear label focused on conceptual design and sustainability, Study New York was born. Producing a primary cut and sew collection from New York’s garment district, St James uses both ethical fabrics and production methods to re-imagine her relaxed and tailored collections, featuring organic cotton, hemp linen, banana fibre and recycled beads. Often including knitwear sourced from alpacas in Peru, she also collaborated with artisans from around the world to create her conscious collections. By constantly challenging her perceptions on design, St James is vocal about her choice to use sustainable and ethical design principles, lecturing on the subject and advising on numerous projects.
Choosing to take a seasonless approach to updated classics, Study New York chooses not to conform to the traditional fashion calendar. The slowly expanding collection of garments is added to every six months, presented in a seasonal edition. A chance to explore classic shapes, colours and materials, the brand is evolving away from conformity and the often restring boundaries set by the industry. In our selection you will see a range of edited and reworked classic silhouettes that are brought to life through St James’ use of colour, material and manipulation.
