ABOUT

HAUS ALKIRE is led by Julie and Jason Alkire. The design duo combine fashion and fine art through their distinct backgrounds and combined interpretation of each garment. Julie Alkire brings nearly 20 years of garment industry design, development, and construction knowledge to the label. Supporting his garment design, Jason Alkire has decades of experience in painting, photography, graphic design, and advertising.

The New York made garments are designed on form – draped and tailored concurrently with the development of the textiles and prints. Reflecting the designers distinctive structural, graphic, and poetic perspectives the garment construction is equally cultivated and discreet. Features include dual layered print fabrications, custom made fasteners, made-to-order exotic skins, hand painted textiles, advanced tech fabrics, and dip dyed furs.

The designers are members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. In addition, they have been recognized by several industry organizations. They were a part of the CFDA {Fashion Incubator} 4.0 and were granted the Made in NY mark of distinction. In 2015, the designers won The Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for Womenswear and the Design Entrepreneur NYC Israel Goldgrub Award. Other accolades include the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award, the W Hotels Fashion Next program, multiple Swarovski sponsorships, and a collection review by the Museum of Fine Art Boston.
