Kelsey Parkhouse is a Brooklyn-based designer and Pratt graduate who launched her womenswear line in May 2012 and named it for her maternal grandmother, Constance Carleen Ross. Her approach to design is all her own, gleaning inspiration from her Southern California upbringing, folk and fine art, and books she's read. The vintage, American quilt is a motif seen in her work again and again and there is ALWAYS a fascinating story behind her collections.
