Meet The Maker: Whitney Pozgay

Phoenix-born Fashion designer Whitney Pozgay is perfectly at home in the bustling, metropolis of her downtown New York City studio. Working alongside her partner and collaborator, husband Parker, is where the WHIT founder designs her cherished collections.

“I decided to set up shop in the Garment District because I’m very hands-on—there’s nothing I like more than discovering a new textile or meeting a new artist to collaborate with”

Renowned for her clean-cut shapes, adventurous colour palette and bold, unexpected prints, it was only a matter of time before the WHIT fashion designer ventured into interiors. And this debut collection is exclusively for us.

With a line of upholstered poufs in contemporary, geometric print and ceramic stools in flashes of monochrome, they’re the statement-making designs that breathe new life into a room.
