Made in New York, New York
NYC based House Dress was founded by Katie Goldman Macdonald as a personal passion project to promote slower design rather than trend driven, fast fashion. Macdonald finds inspiration from both her upbringing in Northern California where she received a BS in Fashion and Textile Design from UC Davis, as well as her time spent in New York as a clothing designer. She has worked for brands such as Nanette Lepore, American Eagle Outfitters and Old Navy before launching her own label.
House Dress focuses on creating clothes with awesomely unique and beautiful materials that are layerable and generously proportioned. Easily described as functional and effortless, all pieces are designed “size free” and are to be worn however the wearer sees best. All garments are designed and made in New York.
In addition to running her brand, designer Macdonald also likes to exercise her green thumb with her terrarium projects which she describes as “painting with plants.” Her work has been featured in the New York Times and O Magazine.
