About

Ideas first, Materials second...

Jesse Elliott’s self-taught method, which integrates elements of fine art and design, was honed while studying at NYU’s Steinhart College. After finding a sewing machine on the street in Brooklyn, he began taking clothes apart to see how they were made. His first hand-made garments treated fabric as soft sculpture draped over the body.

A fascination with the history of objects led Jesse to design clothing from recycled elements, featuring raw, unfinished edges, and exhibiting the natural limitations of fabrics. His philosophy is an interpretation of beauty and style that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. “Things do not last forever, clothing is made to wear. There is an ephemeral quality to style that makes each piece forever unique.”

In Jesse’s view, clothing has the ability to shape both who we are, and why we exist. His wants WhiteWash Collection to create a dialogue of possibilities, especially for the wearer, who dresses in an attempt to express a personal vision. The moment you first merge with a garment is pivotal. It activates a relationship, a dynamic fusion of fabric and flesh. Clothing has the symbolic power to transform.

WhiteWash exists to further a beautiful lifestyle. We focus on the continuity of things in order to better appreciate where they originate, how they become aesthetic, and what purpose they have in our lives. The clothing in our collection is carefully tailored to inspire an active relationship between you and your garment, an interaction that is central to our philosophy.

We design with a consciousness, aware of the transitory relationship between people and things. A beautiful garment may be ephemeral, yet it reminds us of the more lasting things in life; people and places and moments we treasure. The need and desire to dress meaningfully will always endure as a welcome form of cultural self-expression.

WhiteWash blends simplicity with elegance to generate useful, sophisticated design. We enjoy what we do, and will help you be your self.
