Auston Bjorkman studied Patternmaking, Couture Sewing and Fashion Design at Apparel Arts of San Francisco and has a background in latex/leather fetish wear. He then moved to New York to study Menswear at the Fashion Institute of Technology and honed his skills working with innovative luxury designers Thom Browne and Loden Dager. Auston's diverse experiences has resulted in this very personal take on masculinity and identity.
The Sir New York design philosophy combines athleticism with a hint of provocation, and emphasizes texture, optical illusion,
and dimensions by the unexpected layering of technical fabrics over knits and wovens. The
Fall/Winter 2012 Collection takes inspiration from cross referencing a macho sport
with refined, elegant sportsmanship. Horse racing Jockey's and Hockey Uniforms can be noted in this seasons
details that accentuate the shoulders, puts stripes on the lower legs, adds lines to shirts that connote racing silks, and in the overall palette that includes a rich dark emerald "jockey" green.
