Tiff, a Singaporean-Chinese Parsons grad, is obsessed with woman-children, food, stuffed animals and sticky situations. So when she met like-minded Deb while studying at Parsons School of Design in New York, the two couldn’t help but collaborate. The result is Death by Drone, the darkly whimsical, ironic clothing line.
“Our work is created for the mischievous woman-children of the universe who live in candy thatched huts and enjoy wandering through overgrown forests with a toy scottie,” says Tiff.
Eccentric? In the fashion world, that’s just another word for interesting.
It shows in the designs. Like their “The Birds of Mastyivus” dress. Oh-so ladylike in its construction, but with a kooky bird print that from far away looks like cute little cherries or flowers.
With detailed, gotta-see-it-up-close illustrations hand-printed on their clothing and accessories, Death by Drone merges children’s stories with psychedelic rock for a very grown-up aesthetic.
