When Michelle Dudley moved to New York to pursue a career in knitwear design, she had no idea she would end up in the denim business.
Dudley, who graduated with a degree in fashion design and merchandising from Drexel University, moved from Pittsburgh to Manhattan to begin her design career. After working in sweater design for Tommy Hilfiger and Liz Claiborne, Dudley decided to launch her own line of one-of-a-kind knits bearing her own name. This season, Dudley’s collection is all about denim.
