Designer David Peck Unveils David Peck USA, an American Fashion House in Central Houston
HOUSTON, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- David Peck pioneers a domestic fashion house by celebrating American design, labor, and craft with rare authenticity. Combining architectural elements and cinematic elegance, Peck will debut CrOp Fall/Winter 2013 collection Fast Forward, with a private presentation and fashion house tour on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 11:00AM.
France is the nation which gave birth to the maison couture; so it comes as no surprise that Peck, with his Parisian fashion training and New York experience, has opened the South's first full-scale fashion house: David Peck USA, in Houston, Texas. Defined by an uncompromising commitment to the high standards of quality and unwavering attention to detail, Peck is dedicated to putting Houston on the map, not only for fashion design but also for clothing manufacturing. "The majority of American fashion brands manufacture outside the United States. We want to change that, and I am confident with what we are doing we are on the right path. We believe that providing local employment not only guarantees higher quality control but also provides fair wages for an industry that is notorious for the contrary," says Peck.
As of September of last year, "fashion designer David Peck has turned a 6,000 square foot former real estate office into an impressive manufacturing headquarters and showroom" (Houston Chronicle). In Houston's Upper Kirby district, David Peck USA not only serves as a studio, but full-scale fashion design, production, and distribution base.
In addition to David Peck's CrOp ready-to-wear line and custom bridal, the fashion house manufactures for several local women's designers and a handful of children's wear brands. "Peck is leading a group of young designers who are determined to design and manufacture high-quality collections right here in Houston (CultureMap).
"We have created a unique and fascinating environment for both designers and consumers," Peck explains. Alongside the dwindling number of fashion factories producing in New York and California, David Peck USA is a catalyst for local design and domestic manufacturing.
CrOp FALL 2013 Collection
Inspired by David's love of classic cinema, the Fall 2013 collection Fast Forward, combines mid-century elegance with architectural elements and infuses them with warm neutrals and bold color. Chaos, mechanics, and decadence create sumptuous prints from unexpected sources that punctuate the collection, while new textures and textiles update some of CrOp's signature silhouettes.
Select members of the press, buyers, and clients will be invited to an exclusive, first hand look at David Peck's Fall/Winter 2013 CrOp collection, followed by a first-hand experience of how the collection is crafted.
"In the past we have exclusively debuted all CrOp collections at NYFW but this year we want to spotlight Houston's thriving fashion community. We welcome the Houston community and the entire fashion industry to experience first-hand an American Fashion House."
