Junny Ann Hibbert, Harlem-based designer, is set to show her newest collection at Spring Studios on September 11th. Design practically struts through Hibbert’s veins as her mother was a seamstress and created clothing for Hibbert and her siblings from newspapers. On her website, she writes that she thinks “in color, fabric, and texture” and “each piece is a tribute to the sight, sounds, style and vibrancy of my hood, Harlem, NYC.” Her upcoming collection is likely to follow suit in a vibrant caftan-wrapped celebration of New York City and her Jamaican heritage.
She describes her most recent FW19 collection as “a more refreshed museum installation, than catwalk” featuring warm tones, mixed patterns and textures, and signature caftans. In an interview with the CFDA, she speaks of her inspirations that flowed across the streets of Harlem to the mind of Hibbert; “I became inspired by the colors, the sounds of the neighborhood, the beautiful flowing robes of Africans going to prayer… and on 125th Street, sitting there, the idea that I needed to create a beautiful caftan literally came to me. I love the kimono! And through my process of reinvention, I came up with an idea. I wanted a piece I could just wear over a tee and jeans that could take me from basic to glam effortlessly. I started with one caftan.” All JUNNY creations are also available to be custom-made while many feature up-cycled natural fabrics!
