MADE is sort of like the CFDA. The company sponsors fashion designers and helps produce runway shows — but instead of championing household names who show at Lincoln Center, it works mostly with up-and-coming labels at Milk Studios, the Fashion Week venue for smaller productions. It's the downtown answer to the CFDA, in a sense, and not just because Milk is literally downtown. MADE tends to work with more avant-garde brands. It's more subversive.
Now, though, the MADE team have become designers — not just behind-the-scenes characters — thanks to their inaugural collection for Macy's Impulse. It seems like the fashion industry insiders basically created what they'd want to wear with bedhead and messy eyeliner to the latest underground bar, and it's predictably cool: leather skirts, bomber jackets, track pants. The 24 pieces have the sort of swagger we'd expect from the Alexander-Wang-wearing employees we see around Milk throughout Fashion Week — at a fraction of designer prices.
