After graduating from Parsons in 1990, the then 21-year-old started as an “assistant to an assistant to someone else’s assistant,” as she puts it, designing the company’s old-world men’s rugby shirts. “It’s taken me years to get here, and I’ve cultivated it so carefully,” says Lyons. “But I didn’t think it was possible. I just assumed I’d plateau and that there would be no place for me to go.”

Thanks to Garance Doré & Vanessa Jackman for the introduction to these über cool fashionistas, Luisa and Antonine (Tine). The girls are behind bag label TL-180. TL-180 is based on their initials and height..see very cool indeed!
Check out this cute article on the design duo (with friends) this month on Vogue.com. I hope their fall collection, which just launched at NYFW, will be available online on Aussie site My Chameleon soon!
Until then I will just admire their wonderful style on street style blogs…and in case you’re wondering about their bags…most of the bags in these images are theirs. Bonus!
