We create a collection of elegant silk and cashmere coats and jackets for women. The Crowninshield design aesthetic is both classic and fashion-forward. We believe that a return to the traditional master-apprentice system is the key to renewing American arts. As such we have studied 12 years under 81-year old Master Pattern Maker Shirley Willett, studying design and engineering techniques nearly lost in the computer age. Through her guidance we have learned to personally design, drape, and draft each pattern, sculpting every curve by hand with
old-world techniques. This, combined with our use of sumptuous silks and cashmere, creates a winning combination of art and style.
