Williamsburg Fashion Week in NYC!
Desira Pesta Design/Build/Wear is a women and men's clothier that specializes in dresses, blouses, skirts, vests, outerwear, bags, and pillows that showcase the artist's drawings and artwork.
Desira Pesta Design/Build/Wear started as a silkscreening venture making painterly prints on tshirts after Desira received training in serigraphy from a tiny artisan school in Italy. Since 2004, it has grown to much more. Now, couture garments are created in this tiny studio, which are made to order with perfect tailoring. The term Design/Build is usually applied to architecture whereby the architect not only drafts the plans, but also goes about partaking in the actual building of their work, all "in house". This practice and concept is relatively reborn in this day and age, as architects only commandeer the design and planning and the construction is done by lesser paid individuals. Design/Build/Wear is something of the same vein, but applied to fashion. In fashion design, the designer also usually only plans the garment, and a seamstress thereafter constructs it somewhere overseas. Less outsourcing equals the ability to "stay local", "guarantee quality", and make less of an impact on fuel consumption and helps eradicate the need for cheap overseas labor.
