TILLY and WILLIAM

TILLYandWILLIAM is a fashion design company based in Brooklyn. The brand functions on a philosophy of transformability and gender inclusivity, with a focus on comfort and fluidity, as well as socially and environmentally responsible production. 

Each garment transforms to suit multiple uses, as you can see throughout this site. There are more ways to wear each piece; people keep surprising us by figuring out new ways to put it on their bodies. There is no wrong way to wear TILLYandWILLIAM. 

Our goal is to extend the usefulness of your clothes. If your TILLYandWILLIAM gets seriously damaged, come back to us and we'll help you fix it :: reuptake@tillyandwilliam.com

At the heart of the company are friends Tilly deWolfe (neé Jessica Lapidos) and William Poet (Tom Barranca).

The Anatomy of TILLYandWILLIAM

We've imagined pieces inspired by organs
and muscles
pieces inspired by bones, limbs, and eyes
And as our layers of cloth become new layers of skin
We seek to address 
each
individual
part
of the body 

taking into account every nuance
and function

With a divine focus on
our needs
our basics 
our physical components 

We’re starting over from scratch
in order to begin again
from the beginning

extending the lifetime of our garments
by expanding their ability to adapt
and transform 

manifesting pieces that
move
live 
and breathe, 
in homage to the bodies they adorn. 

a re-evolution of clothing
an evolution in human nature
The anatomy of TILLYandWILLIAM.

TRANSFORM. EVOLVE. SHARE.
