Focus On: Karly Hodge


In tonight's installment of the VagaBond NYC blog we are thrusting young Irish designer firmly into the spotlight. Karly Hodge, a recent graduate of Limerick School of Art and Design, debuted her '9am on the New York Subway' collection at the LSAD graduate fashion show. 

The line, as the title suggests, is inspired by her time spent as an intern in NYC at Proenza Schouler.

Motivated by the energy of the city, Hodge drew inspiration from the metro line and based her print on that of the subway map. 

The colors of the collection are a striking combination of black and neon blue, pink and orange, leaving the viewer no choice but to be thoroughly engaged.

The designer states that she 'wanted to use the prints and colors to encapsulate the energy and spirit of the city, while using the silhouette to represent the structure of the subway system and the cityscape.'
