Darby Scott is a distinctive American designer noted for her creative sensibility and impeccable craftsmanship. Her clothing, handbag, and jewelry collections have secured and elevated her position within the global fashion conversation; garnering her a loyal client following.
"Good design is transcendent, timeless," says Scott, who strives for that level of relevancy in her collections. A longtime collector of classic vintage and wear-forever designs, she places a premium on the highest quality materials and finest workmanship to create pieces with timeless applicability. Her design philosophy is to create products both aesthetically beautiful and of enduring quality.
Working with two seamstresses, Scott launched her signature collection of luxurious evening and cocktail dresses in 1994. Her exclusive use of luxe fabrics immediately attracted top retailers including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Scott took a brief hiatus following the tragic death of her husband. After re-strategizing her brand, she returned to the fashion world with an acclaimed collection of handbags. Her vision in combining rich skins and opulent fabrics with semi preciousstones, natural shell, horn, bone and wood offered a unique perspective. She subsequently broadened that aesthetic by including an elegant jewelry collection.
