New York-based Susan Woo, who launched her line in fall of this year, creates classic pieces for the modern woman. Her spring/summer 2010 collection draws inspiration from Faye Dunaway's performance and style in the iconic film, "Bonnie and Clyde." The collection embodies power, intelligence, and--let's not forget--sex appeal, achieved with sharp silhouettes--accentuated with drapery--and beautiful combination of textures. Click through for her designs, perfectly paired with Lulu Frost's spring/summer 2010 jewelry collection:Susan's brand philosophy epitomizes modern fashion and is a blend of high design with both environmental and social consciousness. Woo launched her collection in fall of 2009 after studying at Cornell University and developing a background with companies such as Louis Vuitton, Derek Lam, and Chanel. Read her mission statement and vision, below.

While all of the fabrics used are 100% all-natural and sustainable and includes organic wool, cotton, and cashmere, they are also sourced from companies that have a strong environmental commitment.  Extra steps are taken to ensure that her everyday operations are environmentally conscious and as energy-efficient as possible.  Finally, she ensures that all of her garments are produced using fair labor practices.  Woo's mission is to show the most discerning fashionista that being "environmental" means creating the highest quality product.
