Sara worked as a stylist for Barney's Co-Op, Samantha Pleet, Trasteverine, Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons, Lips Jeans, Wowch, and many more. She was one of the first New York stylists to dress the style icon Coco Rocha and had the pleasure of dressing The New Yorker's "coolest girl in the world", Chloë Sevigny during New York Fashion Week. Sara's personal high point was dressing Au Revoir Simone for an event where the band collaborated with David Lynch for the launch of his Transcendental Meditation book, "Catching the Big Fish" in Union Square.

Samuel is a Visual Artist whose diverse post studio practice includes Painting, Sculpture, Multimedia, and Performance. He has taught numerous subjects: Fashion Illustration, Post Modern Critique, and Life Drawing to name just a few. Sam has worked with a number of Internationally recognized artists such as Mike Kelley, Liz Larner, Al Ruppersburg, Chris Williams, Andrea Zittel, among others. Sam's projects tend to reference a common dialectic at work throughout the artistic community: the hidden complexity of everything we create or place in a signifying framework. This lends quite a bit of insight to our business practice, to say the least.

et dérive Showroom and Zine were established in 2009 by Sara and Samuel Bridgman in Williamsburg. All vintage pieces throughout our editorial photo shoots are available for inspiration rental. Our showroom maintains an archive of over 2,000 elite pieces that coincide with au courant and avant garde fashion forecasts. Eventually we have to turn over our archive to make room for new pieces. We rent to some of today's most innovative designers, so when you purchase an item from us there is no telling who's hands these pieces have been in! Now it is yours to love and cherish, and the best part, is that you get to own the one of a kind piece vs. the reproduction like the rest of the world.

Please feel free to contact us with inquiries in regards to cleaning instructions to ensure a long life for your new garment. We also offer an alterations service for an additional charge if you send us your ideal measurements.
