Raised in a family of film and music aficionados, it was destined that Anya Teresse meld her influences from her parents, Kate and Kass, into her passion of designing. From the time she was 12 years old, Kate and Kass designer, Anya Teresse, started using her lunch money to buy vintage clothing.

Drawing inspiration from classic old films and strong female figures from the past and present, Teresse designs clothing filled with strength, quirk, and femininity. Plackets, pleating, and pin-tuck detailing are apparent with each piece named after her influences such as the late and great Jackie Onassis and Jane Fonda. Her 2008 Fall collection encompasses a beautiful selection of vintage florals and feminine tones along with a couple modern pieces. My favorite? The sleek and chic batwing Michelle Obama jacket.
