Anne James New York is the semi-eponymous womenswear label by Anne Whiting. A graduate of the prestigious Parsons School of Design with a nomination for the outstanding portfolio exhibition in recognition of her presentation on ethical and sustainable fashion development, Anne’s collections have been showcased at New York Fashion Week, Berlin Fashion Week, London Frieze Week, and at PAUSE International Conscious Fashion Pop-Ups.

Her emphasis switched to custom-made slow fashion when she realized that her desire as a designer is to outfit women according to their individualities and needs, believing that fashion should serve its wearer with uncompromisingly precise design and longevity.

She still adheres to eco- and ethical sourcing methods, and loves to incorporate artisanal embroidery, new textile technology, and upcycled fabrics as an essential part of sustainable design. Anne James is named in honor of Anne’s impeccably dressed and stylish grandmother Margaret James, and her feminist, self-made mother Catherine James.
