Titania Inglis


Working with organic cotton woven in the legendary denim mills of Japan, Titania Inglis crafts a minimal, effortless, cutting edge collection for the modern woman.  Produced in New York’s garment district, with a focus on minimizing waste, through her minimal aesthetic, Inglis expresses a similarly minimal color story, with a play on tonality, asymmetric lines, and an intriguing juxtaposition of opaque and sheer materials, all expressed with an urban sensibility.  Sometimes bold and graphic, or alternatively boldly asymmetric, her collection expresses an Asian sensibility.   Her experimental construction is balanced with functional details that elevate her designs from daywear to the realm of high design.


A study in contrasts, she characterizes her collection as minimal, yet lush, tough, but feminine, modern, yet rooted in traditional handwork.  A strong believer in craftsmanship, Titania drapes each piece by hand in her Brooklyn atelier, with production done in a small factory in New York’s garment district. The collections materials are selected for their quality as well as with thought to their environmental, and include organic cotton, vegetable-tanned leather, and end of stock fabric from other manufacturers. Each season Inglis focuses on a different hand technique, which forms the basis and focus of the collection. Techniques used, have included rust dyeing, bee’s waxed cotton, bias cutting, zero waste pattern making, and dip dying with natural dyes.


Born of a Chinese mother and an American father, Inglis is a native of Ithaca, New York, now based in Brooklyn.  Inglis studied at the renowned conceptual Eindhoven Academy, who are noted for their credo of material use and honest practice, with a process-based approach to creativity.  Also studying at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, she studied draping and pattern making, and apprenticed at Staerk, threeASFOUR and Jean Yu before launching her own label.  You can read about her adventures in the fashion industry on her blog entitled Fade to Green.
