One of the most-ballyhooed brands in New York right now is Suno—the three-years young label which represents a completely modern, humanistic take on fashion and style, culling its inspiration and fabrications from Kenya, employing fair-trade practices, and makes it a point to affect positive change within local communities in the country.
This spring, Suno is taking its good sense high-tech by partnering with designedmemory, an interactive design studio, to relaunch SunoNY.com as a streamlined shopping experience.
“Our website reflects the vision of the brand; where we have been creatively and where we would like to go,” said head designer Erin Beatty in a release. “It creates a platform that allows customers to understand the way we work, who we are, and what we are trying to achieve. Eventually they can see the workshops we work with, the places we travel and most importantly, what inspires us. We hope the website allows people a look into Suno and our team, further understanding what we do, how we do it and why.”
