Graduating with a BFA from the prestigious Pratt institute in New York, Samantha Black worked overtime, interning with Jill Stuart and Michael Kors, some of the largest fashion houses in the industry. Soon after graduation Samantha moved to London where she worked personally with one of the most innovative, legendary and gifted designers of our time, the late Alexander McQueen. Returning to the states, Samantha took lead as the head designer of the entire women’s denim line at Jimmyz, owned by Aeropostale. Soon after Samantha took the leap and Sammy B was born.
To know the experience and history of Sammy B designs is to understand the woman behind the name. Hands down the repertoire of Samantha Black’s extensive fashion background easily translates in the details and tailoring of each designed piece.
As one of the selected designers on the new season on Project Runway, Samantha adds a new and fresh aesthetic to this year’s cast of designers. As a gifted designer, Samantha not only has the skills but a genuine heart of gold.
