Rachel Comey (b.1972) is an American fashion designer and creator of the eponymous New York based label.
The brand, which started as menswear, grew out of the downtown arts scene of New York in the early 2000’s. Her collections became known for artful custom textiles, graceful modern silhouettes, and covetable footwear.
Her work is said to be designed for real women, like herself, with strong opinions, big aspirations, and a view to the world that is at once radical and romantic.
After 17 years, the women’s collection has developed it’s own cultish following. Notable customers and friends include Rashida Jones, Maya Rudolph, Maggie Gyllenhall, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Parker Posey.
Comey’s growing empire includes an e-commerce store, NYC flagship brick and mortar store in the heart of SoHo, LA store on Melrose Place, and over 100 wholesale retailers worldwide.
Comey is a member of the CFDA, and splits her time between NYC and her home in Upstate New York with her partner and their two children.
