FASHION DESIGN STUDENTS…..

MEET PEACH CARR

FRIDAY, AUGUST 26th at 3PM in SRC 1005 – SHE WILL HAVE A SPECIAL CHALLENGE FOR YOU – and CHAOTIC VANTITIES.

PEACH CARR, PROJECT RUNWAY ALL-STAR & COD ALUMNA

Peach Carr burst onto the fashion scene as a cheeky, self-taught designer from Chicago on the hit reality show Project Runway (Season 8 and All Stars Season 2).

Drawing from her 60’s and 70’s childhood, Peach finds inspiration for her designs from the music, art and vibe of those eras. When designing, Peach always asks herself, “Would Edie Sedgewick wear this?” Dubbed “Country Club Chic” by Tim Gunn, Peach designs for the woman who likes to be on trend, polished and comfortable.

Peach’s pieces range from bold, wrinkle-free day wear to chic evening looks. All of her collections are made in Chicago by women and everything is machine washable.

List of notable clients include “Real Housewife of NY” Alex McCord, “Real Housewife of NJ” Dina Manzo, Linda Yu, Leanne Trotter and Chicago’s own actress/writer Nora Dunn.
