Alumna Mary Meyer (Painting 2001) was born and raised in California, but her affinity for the East Coast eventually drew her to New York, and she's never looked back.
Today she owns and operates Mary Meyer Clothing, a storefront shop in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn and a wholesale business. She produces and sells clothing of her own design, and also represents several other independent designers.
Her work is a mixture of organic and angular -- natural fabrics with sharp angles and bold shapes.
Meyer credits the success of her company to the enthusiasm for experimentation and innovation fostered during her years at CCA.
