The design duo tell us their life hacks, favorite fashion moments and what’s on their studio soundtrack.
MADE’s take on the “studio visit” is our MINUTE MADE series. Get to know the designers behind some of the insane, eclectic and incredible labels that make up MADE Fashion Week.
MADE gets wavy with Parris and Chloe Gordon of Beaufille, which translates to “handsome girl.” The sisters are about to dominate MADE’s upcoming Fashion Week, so take a peek into their life before the madness happens. The design duo takes the concept of masculinity vs. femininity and portrays these heavy contrasts through their “handmade artisanal luxury.”
