ABOUT

Susan Zienty garments are made-to-measure — patterned individually to reflect clientele’s body type & specifications. Fabrics are sourced locally in New York City’s garment district. Notions are sourced from small businesses in California and New York. Each piece is handmade by Susan Zienty in Astoria, NY.

The work Susan Zienty produces is the result of a craving to discomfort and a hunger to arouse. She creates in a fashion that disputes the standard perception of dress by bringing the female form to the forefront. Through a meticulous understanding of the contemporary woman and the frame she occupies, Susan aims to expose her and clothe her in a way that provokes thought and confronts ideals. As a result of her devotion to challenging societal norms, she is dedicated to exploring issues widely perceived as contentious or provocative
