CONSTRUCTED COMFORT - Each garment is constructed with great attention to architectural detail to deliver comfortable clothing.
Designed for the creative collective – the urban nomad, metropolitan dweller, researcher and explorer.
Based in New York City and designed by Carlos Garciavelez.
Carlos is a New York-based fashion designer, architect, and urbanist. As a Design Critic at Harvard his research and design work spans across a range of disciplines, from fashion and interior furnishings to architecture and urban landscapes.
Carlos holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he studied a broad spectrum of art and design. He later earned his Masters of Architecture with distinction from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
While studying at Harvard, he explored the scale of architecture and the city, expanding his constant curiosity in the field. He was awarded the Harvard Druker Traveling Fellowship, which gave him the opportunity to expand his design interest into the realm of research. This exploration recently manifested in his first published book: Form and Pedagogy: The Design of the University City in Latin America (ARD Publishing 2014). Carlos is currently a Lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He recently coedited the book titled: Between Geometry and Geography: Mexico City (ARD Publishing 2014).
Before establishing GARCIAVELEZ in 2015, Carlos worked for a variety of design studios, including Gabellini Shepard Associates in New York City and the Alexander McQueen fashion house in London.
Today Carlos lives and works in New York City, commuting weekly to teach his lectures, enjoying the privilege of working in both the professional and academic settings as he continues the conversation between art, design, and architecture.
