New York Fashion Label Suno Is Shutting Down

Suno’s spring 2017 show.

Another one bites the dust. New York–based label Suno, designed by Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis, is closing up shop, per a BoF report. The brand’s resort 2017 collection will be its last.

Inspired by the colorful kanga fabrics he saw on his trips to Kenya, Osterweis founded the print-centric company in 2008. Suno soon expanded beyond the kanga-based designs, winning the CFDA’s Swarovski Award for best new women’s designer five years later. The brand also developed a modest celebrity following: Rihanna and Kerry Washington were among those to step out in Beatty and Osterweis’s designs.

Next season of New York Fashion Week is starting to look a little light: In addition to the Suno news, last week Hugo Boss announced it would not show in February, and Vera Wang is also bowing out of doing a runway show, in favor of a short film showcasing her collection.
