FORAY GOLF is a ready-to-wear inspired women’s golf brand offering leading-edge styles that perform. Made up of forward-thinkers who are taking women’s fashion where it has never been. Our goal is to empower women to be avant-garde -- in a traditional game like golf, that makes the FORAY woman a renegade.
Foray, the word itself, means a sudden attack or incursion. That ignites our determination to let out our inner renegade. Disruptive to the norm, we are taking the golf world by surprise and demonstrating an intolerance for the status quo. Women have been treated as second class citizens on their own course and FORAY is here to answer their call to arms.
IndigoJane grew out of a desire to create seasonal, local textiles using only natural, botanical dyes. I have a dye garden on Long Island where I grow hollyhocks, marigolds, hibiscus and a variety of other flowers which yield beautiful colors. I forage for walnuts for browns and grays at nearby farms. The cashmere is from a small mill in Nepal, the cotton is hand woven Khadi cotton from southern India.
At Jes Wade our craft, ongoing client dialogue, and quality are the foundation of our business. For us our long term relationships with clients who wear our clothing is the ultimate measure of success.
We focus on innovation in design by styling heritage fabrics in modern ways. Heavy weight crepe back satins are rotated onto bias to create luxury styles with the ease of t-shirts. Couture laces are supported with lightweight power mesh so fitted corseted tops and dresses slim and support the body with comfort and ease of movement. Every Jes Wade piece is constructed with every attention to detail in our TriBeCa atelier. Our goal with every piece we sell is that it will be worn and cherished for years to come.

Ever curious about the world around her, Page Sargisson seeks out objects whose texture, shape and history inspire her. With her ability to see beauty where others might not, Page repurposes and transforms these found objects into uniquely textured, handcrafted jewelry, and in doing so, helps bring out the artist in those who wear these special creations.
Page grew up working in her grandfather’s woodworking studio and learned to carve, sand and make dovetail joints with him – after graduating from Brown and working a corporate job, she took a wax carving class that brought her back to my childhood passion of creating and carving. Fifteen years later, she sells at small boutiques around the US, and Barney’s, Ron Herman and Isetan in Japan. She designs jewelry for people like her, jewelry that can transition from dropping off the kids at school in the morning to work and dinner out at night.
Page's pieces are all handmade here in NYC using recycled metals. Her work has a distinct look since she transfers textures from old letterpress blocks, textiles and woodblocks – this seems to attract a clientele who like to “collect” her pieces.
In a world where so much is mass produced and 3D printed, the "brushstrokes" of her carvings allow the end customer to connect to the artist and imagine the work that went into creating each piece.
SØSKEN Bridges the gap between art and instrumentality. We pursue design with intent. We create outerwear for the woman who won't steal your attention when she walks in, but will leave a feeling you can't shake after she's left.
We believe the future of fashion depends on character fluidity and a willingness to accept change with ease. As such, we believe your outfit should represent a similar adaptability - composed of pieces as simply independent as they are uniquely complementary. SØSKEN creates seasonal staples and outfit completers for anyone who feels inspired to leave their mark amid constant evolution and busy lifestyles.

Volver is a collaboration of style and functionality. Designed with the modern woman in mind, the collection in its entirety expresses classic American chic with an edge. Each piece is hand made in the heart of New York with the use of local factories and tanneries. A minimalistic approach was taken in designing the ready to wear collection. The mixture of light weight leathers, maximum attention to detail & signature hardware is just the right combination for a polished everyday look. Volver's handbag collection compliments the ready to wear offering the same functionality. Classic shapes constructed in Italian and American Leathers also feature Volver's signature hardware and piercing. The durable and light weight leather selected make it possible for the modern woman on the go to carry her essentials from day to night.
