Occupy Outer Space
Shadowplaynyc was founded by Ximena Chouza and Ali Bennaim, two space obsessed designers based in Brooklyn, NY.
Xime was born in San Diego but grew up in Mexico City, and Ali was born in Venezuela and grew up in Miami. We both attended Parsons The New School for Design, where we acquired a BFA in Fashion Design.
Every garment is hand-made by us in our Brooklyn studio, and all of our fabrics are custom printed in the United States. We use real images from outer space, and we also design our own prints inspired by these images.
We aim to be always ecologically responsible. Besides carefully hand-making each garment and sourcing all of our supplies locally, we use many organic fabrics and employ a waste-saving technique. This means that we design most of our garments to use up almost every inch of fabric, leaving next to nothing for the landfill.
