Holley St. Ext. is inspired by my ancestors in early 20th century Connecticut. I come from a long line of craftsmen; they were seamstresses, hatters, mechanics, and much more. Monopolizing one street in Danbury, Connecticut, my relatives created their own community as working-class Italian-Americans, where craft was a normal part of everyday life. Holley St. Ext. is an ode to highly crafted, well-tailored clothing and an urge to the industry to step back and embrace slow production.
