Meet the Designer: Dusen Dusen

There is no designer out there who creates prints quite like New York’s Dusen Dusen. Colorful, eccentric and unabashedly bold, the best way to accessorize one of their pieces is with a sh*t ton of confidence. Ellen Van Dusen, the Brooklyn babe behind the quirky brand, has had an obsession with creating prints since childhood and has been honing her craft ever since. Geometric shapes, bright colors, and patterns that resemble abstract paintings are juxtaposed with sleek, simple silhouettes. Beyond fabric, the prints from Dusen Dusen are works of art in their own right. Having launched the women’s wear line in 2010, Ellen has since expanded her repertoire by offering a line of home decor products such as pillows, blankets, bedding and towels that makes us want to completely redecorate. We sat down with the designer to talk about design, pattern play and her adorable Boston Terrier, Snips.
