Angela Bacskocky

..the making of a fashion line..

Stitching a Wild Side

Angela Bacskocky is a pro at crafting wearable art that nods to nature with raw elements while maintaining a delicate, feminine charm.

After trying her hand in the psychedelic rock world, where she crafted clothes for all her bandmates, Angela set her sights – and hands – on the fashion world. “I decided that when I didn’t become a rock star, it was time to do something that’s more for me, so I went to school for fashion,” she says.

She has a natural talent when it comes to working with natural elements in her clothing and accessory line. Leather, fur, even bones and antlers are artfully crafted into wearable art that merges the lines between art and fashion.

She even stitched her way to fame when she participated in the 12th season of Bravo’s Project Runway.

We can’t help but applaud this designer’s passion for handcrafting fashion pieces that speak to our wild side.

Our presentation of MARTYR Spring 2014 at Coast Shows in New York last week got a little mention in WWD - Women&#8217;s Wear Daily [gasp!]:
Coastal Karma
Emerging independent fashion trade show Coast came to New York for the first time last week, and it added an extra artsy twist with an installation from Angela Bacskocky, designer and Project Runway Season 12 contestant. The hybrid installation, performance art piece and fashion presentation featured models in narrow, cage-like sculptures. They wore apparel and accessories — including leather, glass and metal cutout collars and headpieces — from Bacskocky&#8217;s third ready-to-wear collection. Coast founder Karen Bennett said she was inspired by Bacskocky&#8217;s approach. &#8220;I am trying to give a platform to young designers, [and] Angela is amazing,&#8221; she added. &#8220;She has very different, new pieces that are very cool and super interesting. There is such a great karma about her.&#8221;
