Silvae, meaning “ of the woods,” is a Seattle based ready-to-wear line by Deborah Roberts that is produced domestically in New York. After earning a degree in International studies and Political Science at the University of Washington, Deborah went on the complete an intensive apparel program at the School of Apparel Design & Development at Seattle Central. Following her schooling, Deborah worked as an assistant designer and materials developer at Eddie Bauer before continuing on to start her own project.
In 2013, Deborah launched the Silvae line. Deborah drew inspiration for the line from her surroundings in the Pacific Northwest. You can see nature reflected in her work with her choice of color, fabric designs, and the flowing yet structured nature of each piece. The works allude to the contrasts between hard and soft reflected within her observed natural surroundings. The Silvae collections merge feminine silhouettes, organic shapes, and a love for the surreal, which can be seen in her fabric prints developed in-house with artist Olivia Knapp.
runway2street is thrilled to bring on a designer who pieces hold such presence and are a perfect fit to the modern work wardrobe. Her collection features great affordable basics from, tailored tops, clean-cut pants, structured jackets, to elegant and eye catching dresses.
