From Childrenswear to Women’s Apparel, Academy Grad is Making a Name
Academy of Art University’s School of Fashion graduate, Ryan Roche, merges into the realm of women’s apparel with the support of many celebrity moms. Both Maggie Gyllenhaal and Milla Jovovich initially sought Ryan for childrenswear and ended up requesting designs for themselves. As a mother, Ryan saw a need for conscientiously made clothing for children, and now finds herself designing similar ready-to-wear pieces for women. Her first collection for Fall 2011 was purchased by Jovovich and picked up by Eva Gentry, Steven Alan, and Metier, among other stockists.
