Compai Clothing melds the old with the cutting edge, and teeters between tradition and innovation. All clothing is handmade in the USA. Compai is committed to style with a conscience.

Treehouse Brooklyn:
designer Sirius* brings a collision of her design fascinations to life in this collection. Focusing on reworking and bejeweling vintage pieces and eco-friendly jerseys to create silhouettes that celebrate and caress fashion's traditions while simultaneously dreaming of a better, brighter, more blinged out future.

Sodafine will be presenting a collection of dresses that bridge the gap between owner Erin Weckerle's current painting practice and her clothing designs for the shop. Using the dress form as the canvas, and incorporating hand-painted details and collaged fabrics drenched in paint and dripping from the surface to play with texture and dimension.

Dear Birthday:
Using hand dyed and printed organic cotton, Dear Birthday's "tidal detritus" collection derives inspiration from the Cape Cod seashore in autumn, including the cast-off outer shells of marine invertebrates and remnants of egg casings with a nod to Edward Gorey who made the Cape his final resting place.
