Industry Insider Interview with Beckerman

T.O. twins Callianne & Samantha and younger sister Chloe first took the fashion world by storm when their FIT thesis graduate collection of unabashedly girly designs won the Elle Girl Magazine Scholarship Award and was subsequently featured in Nylon magazine.

Today, in addition to womenswear, the Beckerman collection also includes handbags and jewellery (with 20% of proceeds from their jewellery line donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation in support of AIDS relief). With a following that includes celeb style mavens such as Rachel Bilson, Agyness Deyn and Daria Werbowy– these sisters are just getting started.

What makes the collection unique... We are a sister team and we design our own textiles and accessories. We mix colors and textures together to create our collections.

Inspiration... We draw from street style in New York to the music scene to just hanging out with our friends and having fun.

Fashion Tricks (for saving money)... Shop vintage!

Current Obssessions... The New Young Pony Club, Pixie Geldof and movie Reality Bites.

Ultimate Fashion Entourage... We love Patrick Kelly (designer) and our friend Agyness Deyn.

Street Style or Runway... Definitely mixing street style and runway together! And vintage pieces with designer pieces. Punk pieces always spice up a wardrobe too!

Sibling Rivalry?... We always end up working on everything together from the designing to the photography to the videography and to the editing! We all get along great because we laugh all the time!
