CUSHNIE is a luxury women’s ready-to-wear and bridal brand designed by Carly Cushnie.
Established in 2008, the label was founded on the desire to serve the modern woman. Artfully crafted with clean, sculptural lines, the CUSHNIE collection is precisely tailored to achieve the perfect fit for the female form.
Defined by the balance of proportion, structure and fluidity, the CUSHNIE aesthetic embodies a refined sense of cosmopolitan minimalism and femininity.
“As a woman, I understand what my customer wants from her clothes. I’ve grown and evolved alongside her over the past 10 years, and I strive to present her with timeless silhouettes that make her feel sexy, sophisticated and powerful — all at once.”
After spending a decade as one half of the design duo Cushnie et Ochs, Carly Cushnie went solo in late 2018. The rebranded Cushnie collection focuses on what the London-born, NYC-based designer saw as a void in the market: clothing that was sleek and minimal, but at the same time, sleek and elegant. “As a woman, I understand what my customer wants from her clothes,” she says on her website. “I’ve grown and evolved alongside her over the past 10 years, and I strive to present her with timeless silhouettes that make her feel sexy, sophisticated and powerful—all at once.”
The CUSHNIE Collection is worn by influential women including Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Gal Gadot, Lupita Nyong’o, Ava Duvernay, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Lopez, Ashley Graham, and Padma Lakshmi, among many others.
CUSHNIE is distributed through over 100 premiere stockists worldwide. The brand was a winner of the Ecco Domani Award (2009), a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (2011) and a nominee for the CFDA Swarovski Award (2012).
