Each piece is one of kind—from the textile, down to the seam finishing. While approaching clothing as wearable sculpture, Amalya's work marries beauty and grit. The polished and exquisitely unrefined mingle through constant exploration in fabric manipulation, silhouette and upcycling. Experimental and distinctive in her design, Amalya practices zero-waste construction, and works predominantly with natural fibers. Most recently she completed Vermont’s 77ART inaugural residency program, presented her latest collection at Paris Fashion Week this fall, and showed work in Miami Art Basel. Her works are currently on display in New York, Vermont, and Philadelphia. Amalya Holds degrees from Central St. Martins, Parsons and Eugene Lang.

“Given its status as a hipster hub, it’s no surprise that Williamsburg is brimming with well-curated vintage stores, music stores and gift shops. Sure, the neighborhood has been flooded with chains like J.Crew and Urban Outfitters, but judging by the list of local indie stores and some of the best shops in NYC, it’s safe to say that the 'hood is still rad as hell.” 

Whether you’re shopping on a small or large budget, this Brooklyn treasure trove is the place to go for one-of-a-kind shopping.
