Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, best known for their sleek and sexy body-con pieces, tell us the inspiration behind all that fringe and feathers.

What was your inspiration for fall?

Carly: The collection became about Western travel — like a sultry, sexy vagabond traveling around. We looked at Native American silhouettes also, so it was kinda that mixed together. It was taking some of the Native American references, like the elastic boning and the fringes, and cleaning them up.

Which look sums up the collection?

Michelle: The first look (pictured at right). It really was one of the first things we designed and was our jumping-off point. It’s got the boning, it’s got our tailoring. It’s body con, which is signature us, but held true to the rest of the concept.

What is your saving grace during Fashion Week?

Both: Green tea ice cream.
