Mr Cody Ross keeps the tradition of New York cult cool burning
In the midst of the frenzy of last month's New York Fashion Week, I popped into this rather eminent West Village townhouse for a quick appointment . I discovered that the townhouse was the domain of a very energetic young designer with a line dubbed "Priestess NYC" . The room was jammed packed with cool kids from Paris, a certain ID fashion editor, a steady stream of buyers and curious fashion journalists. Quelle scene, I thought. Then the information came to light that Priestess NYC was a line that has been rocked by everybody from Bjork to Tyra Banks and Nathalie Portman. (Damn...where have I been) Cody Ross, the creator of the line is one of those Only-In-New York figures, originally from Dallas, Texas with stop-offs at the London School Of Economics and Central Saint Martin's. After trading texts and emails back and forth for roughly a month TI finally caught up with Cody for a coffee and the swift unraveling of his amazing design narrative.
