In the fall of 2011, after closing the doors of The Twentyten, David and his design partner Nina Zilka, created the menswear label Alder New York, as well as a successful line of natural apothecary goods sold at retailers like Anthropologie and high-end salons like F.S.C Barber. Over the years David’s work has been featured and reviewed by publications such as WWD, Surface, Time Out New York, Daily Candy, Elle, Essences, and many others. David has played an important role helping the 2013 seniors develop their collections, the best of which will be shown at our annual runway presentation at Center548 on April 25.
