Less, but better. Titania Inglis’s eponymous collection embodies her philosophy of lush minimalism as both aesthetic and core principle: Striking yet wearable dresses, jackets, and separates go easily from day to night, summer to winter, and sometimes metamorphose with a trick of geometry.
Equally minimal is the line’s environmental impact. Each garment is sewn in a small factory in New York from high-quality, low-impact fabrics including Japanese organic cotton, Italian vegetable-tanned leather, and dead stock wool from the local garment industry. New styles are wear-tested to guarantee a flattering, comfortable fit and sturdy construction, ensuring that these statement pieces will be wardrobe staples for years to come.
Now based in Brooklyn, Titania grew up among the spectacular gorges and waterfalls of Ithaca, New York, and refined her dark, streamlined aesthetic while living in Denmark and the Netherlands. Half Chinese, half Scots-Irish by blood, she embraces the seeming dichotomies of a line looking to the future, yet grounded in tradition, operating on the border of nature and industry.
Titania studied at Design Academy Eindhoven and the Fashion Institute of Technology, and apprenticed under cult New York designers Camilla Stærk, Jean Yu, and Threeasfour before launching her solo line. Her designs have been featured in Elle, Women's Wear Daily, and the New York Times, and worn by musicians including Charli XCX, Zola Jesus, Chelsea Wolfe, Meredith Graves, M83, and TLC. Titania was honored for her work with the 2012 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award in Sustainable Design and was selected as a finalist in the 2013 CFDA/Lexus Eco-Fashion Challenge.
