New York based designer Morgan Clifford is slowly taking the outerwear market by storm with each passing day. Her background includes major fashion brands, including the likes of Alice + Olivia, Calypso St. Barth and Gotham Magazine, undeniably establishing herself as a veteran within the industry. A lover of the winter holidays, Clifford was inspired to begin designing her very own statement coat with the intention of creating something chic, versatile and cruelty-free. Originally a women’s line, Clifford has expanded to also include little girl coats, inspired by the birth of her very own. A woman who knows what she wants and how to get it; success is surely just around the corner.
Morgan Clifford is relatively new to the scene, but it has not affected her drive and determination to create pieces that she is proud of. Her delicate and soft demeanor is visible through her work and she is beginning to get the credit she deserves on a much larger scale. Her coats have found their way onto some of Hollywood’s biggest A-List celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Penelope Disick and Bailee Madison, and the number of satisfied customers has only been increasing.
The authenticity is what is most admirable about Clifford and her gorgeous designs. The Mommy + Me feel that comes with her recently introduced children’s line is sure to appeal to mother’s and guardians who want to feel stylish, elevated and sassy with their mini-me. She has taken her talents to NYFW, participating for the first time in 2018. Gearing up for the new year, Clifford has her mind set on climbing the ladder and that resolve is going to be her greatest asset.
