Brooklyn-based designer, Morgan Carper Bradford has a passport to envy. A self-professed explorer, Morgan hits the open road (and often skies) to glean inspiration for her wanderlust-inducing collections. Recent seasons drew inspiration – present in design, color and print – from Southeast Asia, Turkey, India and the American Southwest. When traveling Morgan’s not only taking in the scenery, but often learning the craft of textile or print making native to a specific locale. The result: Ethereal dresses, flattering jumpsuits and covetable motorcycle jackets that strike that perfect balance of city-chic and wearable. And with each collection more beautiful than the last, Morgan is quickly becoming a staple in our closets. As this gal is usually coming or going, we were excited to catch her long enough to rummage through the drawers in her gorgeous Fort Greene townhouse. And on her birthday too!
