Claire McKinney is an independent fashion designer. Guided by found materials and experimental textile treatments, McKinney's work is primarily made to order and one-of-a kind in nature, exploring the instinctive artistry and nuance behind tailor-made garment creation. In 2015 McKinney partnered with New York label Maryam Nassir Zadeh, and continues to create editorial pieces for New York Fashion Week runway presentations. McKinney co-founded the label SC103 with fellow Pratt graduate, Sophie Andes-Gascon, in 2019. Their debut runway show received notable press coverage from Women's Wear Daily.
