About

W O L C O T T : T A K E M O T O - a ratio of Joy Wolcott and Natasha Takemoto. Beginning in May of 2011, WT was developed with the notion of creative independence and design integrity with clothing that puts thought towards fit and quality. All pieces are designed and produced in NYC with the intention of supporting a historical and local industry. It is the ultimate hope that the love and thoughtfulness put into each piece is translated to the wearer and then in a sense can adopt and continue on loving it in their own way. ALL PIECES ARE DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN NYC.

MADE WITH DETAIL AND CARE, IT IS OUR HOPE THAT EACH GARMENT CAN WITHSTAND LONG TERM WEAR. HOWEVER, WE UNDERSTAND THINGS HAPPEN. PLEASE LET US KNOW SHOULD YOUR ITEM NEED REPAIR AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO RESTORE YOUR GARMENT TO LOOK AND FEEL IT’S BEST AGAIN.

History

Joy studied apparel design in Seattle and Natasha studied design in San Francisco. They unofficially met while both living in Seattle and officially met when they coincidentally ended up living 2 blocks from one another in Bushwick. Pre-WT, Joy interned with Mociun and for two seasons at Rachel Comey while Natasha worked in the e-commerce and merchandising field. The decision to venture into their own independent design project made complete sense and looking back over the history of their partnership, a shared aesthetic and sense of style has lent to a strong design collaboration.
