Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk met while studying for their Masters at Parsons School of Design. The two shared a provocative aesthetic and both enjoyed exploring the boundary between trash and treasure. In 2013 they launched Area in New York City -- they took the name from one of New York’s most popular ‘80s nightclubs. The club meets glamour designs take inspiration from a range of decades including the flapper era of 1930s, 1960s color blocking mods and the eccentric Studio 54 ensembles of the 1980s. The shiny satins, fluid silhouettes and bedazzled heels include a new textural element of added glimmer and shine, making it some of Hollywood celebrities most-wanted items. The ultra-feminine pieces have a unique street-style edge for a simply fabulous look.
