Which came first, the modelling or fashion design?
Both careers evolved at the same time. While studying at the high school of Fashion Industries and the Fashion Institute of Technology, we landed articles in many fashion editorials for our designs and modelling appearances on the Rachael Ray Show and NBC’s Today Show, Good Morning America etc.

Our design style is show stopping. The DPiperTwins brand embraces our roots and New York City lifestyle. We displays it in every collection through our use of bold prints, vibrant colors and exquisite silhouettes.

You have many celebrity fans. Is there any celebrity you’d love to dress?
We would love to dress Michelle Obama, Oprah, Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

Do you design equally or split up tasks?
We brainstorm our inspiration behind the collection together. We sketch our designs separately. Together we review each design to establish a strong collection for our clients.

Do you think being twins helps your brand?
Having a twin has helped us to be the fashionistas that we are today. In one outing, we can showcase two different looks. We embrace each other’s personal style to create an exquisite wardrobe and fashion collections. Our lives are an everyday fashion show on the streets of New York. It makes shopping and designing more exciting for us and styling for our clients. As the saying goes, two is better than one!
