Eighteenth NYC Designs Giveaway


With summer in full swing for the most of you (since Vancouver has been experiencing a very cold and dismal summer so far) it is important to find great basics that you can pair with the latest trends.


I think that it is crucial to find basics that have a great twist to them yet still remain classic and can take you through the seasons. Eighteenth NY has an amazing selection of basics that can transition through not only different seasons but can also be worn five years from now.


Alexa is the creative mind behind Eighteenth NYC and she has been classically trained from attending Parsons which is one of the most famous design schools in the world. Her design sensibility and dedication to providing classic yet highly detailed pieces can clearly be seen in each of her designs.


The Spring/Summer 2011 collection from Eighteenth pays homage to the basic jersey tee in its purist form (black, white, and grey solids) and also offers unique details such has asymmetrical hemlines to interesting cutouts. Ensuring that Eighteenth has a hugely wearable collection of "not-so-basic basics"

Eighteenth has been featured in Cosmo, Glamour, Lucky and many more magazines

Lets get to know a little bit more about Alexa the great designer behind Eighteenth through a great interview:

Name: Alexa Galler

Name of label: Eighteenth

Location: New Yorks very own
West Village


Favorite item from your shop: The
v-Neck tee with shoulder cut outs

Tell us a little bit about yourself: I
am 29 years old and have been building my label, Eighteenth, for 3 years now. I came to NY from Atlantic City to go to NYU and later ventured to Parsons for fashion design. Since graduating I have been focusing on the success and growth of my business.

What do you consider to be your
greatest accomplishment? Starting my own business even in the economic climate we are in. Working for myself is something I have always wanted to do and I have accomplished just that.

When and what made you want to open up your shop? After
graduating from Parsons with a degree in fashion I knew I didn't want to work for anyone but myself. I tried to work under some other labels but once I found the opportunity to create my own vision I grabbed the chance and never looked back.


Tell us a little bit more about your creation process: Most of the ti
me I just throw some fabric on the dress form and see what cool silhouettes I can make. I usually add an asymmetrical detail because I think it makes a piece extra special and more interesting.

Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs?
Well, my style is in a very specific niche in the Fashion Industry. I love looking into art and
architecture for for different silhouettes and the street style that not only comes out of NY, but London, Paris, and Japan as well.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why? I would
have to say I would want to be a giraffe because I'm real short and it would be nice to be tall for a change.

If you could have one super power what would it be and
why? Make money grow on trees. Self explanatory.
