spotlight on the best of new talent

diana gerich

Diana Gerich is a New York based, womenswear designer who recently graduated with a BFA from Parsons School for Design. Influenced by the dynamics of social and gender hierarchies, her work emulates a strong understanding of empowerment and control both visually and conceptually. Her Senior thesis collection explores the complex relationship between control and chaos. The most obvious instance of this theme is in the contrasting color pallet. Reversible mini dresses and trapunto stitched details add an element of surprise to the otherwise sleek finish of this collection


Gerich was fortunate enough to be sponsored by Saga Furs, which allowed her to create a one of a kind reversible fox fur vest. With a mixture of sharp structure and organic draping, this collection provides a sense of tasteful sophistication with a provocative edge.
