Perfect Skins

People always ask what I make in leather, and my answer is... everything! I think "leather" is still oddly stuck on either "outerwear" or "fetish" wear in most people's minds when it comes up as a specific fabrication. And, I decided to focus on leather because I like the restraint :) it gives me. Like many artists I work best with a tightly defined goal or project, so I chose leather as my medium. I do work in other fabrics, but not here.   After all why would I need to? Look at just some of the things that can be done with skins... Please Turn The Sound DOWN - Or OFF!  My Apologies.

This video is of my last production collection, showing examples of work done in hand painted leather, laser cut leathers, distressed leathers, leather with hand-cut work and lacing, woven leather, reversible leather and fur, and stretch leather. As well as the leather & textile fabrications that are exclusive to BehrleNYC. Variations of many of these items can be custom-made.

  1. Carla,
    Your fashion show is simply incredible! The men and women are dressed in about the hottest clothing on this, or for that matter, any side of the Atlantic/Pacific. I may have to get another pair of pants from you, even if there's no place for me to buy that guy's abs to go with them.
    I knew you were a genius. The video only proves it to the world!

  3. Just one look at her website will do more than any words I could use to describe the quality of her work. It's probably the finest custom made leather clothing this side of Milan. She's made me 2 pairs of pants and an amazing 3/4 length leather coat, and all three are perhaps my favorite pieces I own, (excluding a beat-up sweatshirt I've had since I was 19).
    She's truly a wonderful artist, yet so exacting she could be a rocket scientist. And that's a good thing.

  4. For some reason the video doesn't play? I just see the Q with a ? in it. Anyone have an idea why?

  5. It may be that you are on IE. It does works on Firefox and Safari, so you should not have a problem viewing it on either of those browsers.
