About Cushnie et Ochs:

Carly Cushnie was born and raised in London. After graduating high school she attended Parsons School of Design in both Paris and New York, where she completed a BA in Fashion Design. While attending Parsons she was hired as a design intern at Donna Karen, where she developed a strong sense of drape and movement. Later she joined the team as a design intern at Proenza Schouler. In her graduating year Carly completed an internship at Oscar De La Renta where she worked closely on the ready to wear collection.

After completing a military high school education, Michelle Ochs, who was raised in Maryland, headed to New York to begin her studies at Parsons School of Design, where she completed a BA in Fashion Design. During her time at Parsons she was hired as a design intern at Marc Jacobs, then joined the team as a design intern at Isaac Mizrahi Made to Order. In her final year at school Michelle interned with Chado Ralph Rucci's studio and learnt firsthand the intricate couture techniques.

While attending Parsons, Carly and Michelle collectively received top honors that included the CFDA scholarship and the SAGA award, as well as runner-up and winner of 2007 Parsons Designer of the Year. Upon graduation Carly's and Michelle's senior collections were also featured in a cover story for WWD. Carly's international sophistication and Michelle's American sensibility, informs the brand's intricate draping and precise tailoring. Their diverse backgrounds, coupled with a strong sense of female form and thorough education, result in collections that are an intricate play of shape and technical craftsmanship. It is a constant evolution of form and function that is CUSHNIE ET OCHS.

Since the launch of CUSHNIE ET OCHS with the Spring 2009 collection, CUSHNIE ET OCHS has received the 2009 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award, finalists for the 2010 Fashion Group International Rising Star Awards and currently top ten finalists for the 2011 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. CUSHNIE ET OCHS is sold in the most exclusive boutiques worldwide, has been featured in Vogue and W magazine as the New Guard, and has garnered numerous credits in leading publications.
