Elaine Healy is a Pittsburgh-based luxury designer focused on the intersection of personal style and the avant garde. Focusing on a ‘man versus machine’ aesthetic, her collections embody a merging of technological processes and hand-rendered techniques. Elaine has presented collections at Vancouver Fashion Week & the Carnegie Museum of Art, and will present her SS19 collection in Pittsburgh this September. She is currently open for collaborations, investors and partnerships.
Inspirations include: texture & modification of raw materials, the human body & organic forms, technology & mapping, repetition & sound. Through developing her Spring/Summer 2019 collection, she continues to push boundaries through experimentation with technical textiles and surface manipulations.
