Established in 2008 by Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, CUSHNIE ET OCHS embodies a unique sensibility that seamlessly combines a bold sensuality with a raw feminine attitude that is confidently understated and luxuriously modern. The designers' inherent understanding of the female body informs their body-contouring silhouettes while celebrating the women who wear them. The collection has an alluring sense of energy and its flawless execution is complemented by the use of color and bold lines. The striking collection speaks to the new modern woman who owns her own individuality. This definitive aesthetic has gained them the 2009 Ecco Domani award, and has made them Finalists for the 2011 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and Nominees for the 2013 CFDA Swarovski Award. Their dresses have become a favorite on the red carpet, dressing an array of women from Reese Witherspoon and Rihanna to the First Lady Michelle Obama. The collection is sold in more than 100 stores worldwide and supports domestic manufacturing in New York City.
