Having recently graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design studying menswear, Chase Shuman is debuting his first collection at his first presentation show.
His use of innovative materials paired together with asymmetry and deconstructive lines, his collection is a combination of conceptual imagination and feminine playfulness. After a year of working an office job due to the pandemic, Chase came back to designing with a renewed sense of purpose. He began to sketch and design and realized he wanted to create a brand that celebrated the beauty of nature, the power of self-expression, and the importance of sustainability. Chase aims to create garments that not only look beautiful but also feel comfortable and ethically made.
Chase Shuman debuts his first presentation at SS24 NYFW. Rooted in the natural flow of emotions, guided by feelings, Chase Shuman wants to emphasize sustainability, limited runs, and ethical production throughout his work.
