“Nature, travel and art serve as my muses.” An avid traveler, Morgan Carper is constantly inspired by the native sights and cultures she has experienced in her trips through Central America, India, East Asia and beyond. It’s while spending time alongside and learning from local artisans that Morgan begins to craft concepts for her collections. The region’s cultural landscape and terrain have an integral role in her work.
A fascination with the elements of design led her to study textile design, where she developed skills in all areas of visual art including silk screening, drawing, and photography. Through it all she never lost sight of her true love – fashion. And this passion for it took her to practice in London, Florence and ultimately New York.
Inspired by the philosophies of her studies and travel experiences, Carper launched her namesake high-end women’s wear collection in 2010. Her dedication to the craft and integrity of design resulted in a smart and versatile collection. Morgan Carper’s chic sensibility and effortless sexiness easily transition from day to night with each piece striking the perfect balance between tender and tough, classic and stylish, delicate and edgy. Carper’s one-of-a-kind aesthetic reflects the sensibility of forward-thinking women with a cultivated sense of style.
A hand draped dress, an intricately beaded detail, a custom print, these are characteristics of Morgan Carper, as is practicality and wearability.
Carper resides in Brooklyn and is inspired daily by the simple objects that surrounds her. Morgan Carper
