Ali Bennaim and Ximena Chouza
Ali Bennaim and Ximena Chouza are two space-crazed Parsons graduates bringing the marvels of the universe to handcrafted, carefully designed garments. Each piece is digitally printed with real images from nature and space, many from NASA's Hubble Telescope, which captures vast networks of gas clouds and star clusters thousands of light years away. Based in Brooklyn, the starry-eyed pair source and produce almost everything locally. They also employ a waste-saving technique, carefully designing every garment to utilize almost every inch of fabric and leave next to nothing for the landfill. Although these young designers have lofty ambitions, they'll never forget their earthly beginning and aim to remain environmentally conscious.
