Dawn Smithson teaches clothing design at Seattle Central College and spent 10 years as a clothing designer for several different Seattle brands before starting MOTH and CROW in 2011. One of her mission statements is to produce the work locally. MOTH and CROW is Dawn's slow-fashion response to a world where the endless trend-mill and "demand" for lower prices has pushed quality of goods to an all-time low. Her hope is to be one of many small brands bringing back our heritage as a leading producer of clothing and accessories. Dawn's focus on texture, finishing and elegant closures make these pieces a pleasure to carry and use. These are timeless, modern pieces you will want (and be able) to carry for many years, and possibly even pass on to the next generation.
