CEO & Creative Director at CrOp By David Peck
David Peck’s artistic career began with a degree in classical cello and further developed at Ecole Parsons à Paris where he studied fashion design. While at Parsons, not only did he win top honors as the recipient of the junior year Silver Thimble Award, but also as Designer of the Year for his senior collection.
While in Paris, David worked for renowned fashion houses such as Paco Rabanne, Junichi Hakamaki, and Robert Normand, as well as a style consultant and costume designer for several films. David relocated to New York in 2008 to co-found and co-design Untitled 11:11, a high-end womenswear collection committed to sustainable design practices. Untitled 11:11 quickly became a favorite of celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Rose McGowan, and Lauren Conrad due to its designer aesthetic and commitment to the environment. By early 2010, David had moved to Houston to be closer to his family. He was serving as a consultant for Ecole Parsons à Paris when he was inspired to launch CrOp by David Peck.
David’s dedication to local manufacturing, meaningful job creation, and minimal environmental impact, results in each garment being made with the utmost care and superior quality. His commitment to sustainability is reflected in the low impact printing methods he chooses and by his incorporation of organic, fair trade and natural fibers into the collection wherever possible.
CrOp by David Peck is designed and produced with pride in the David Peck factory in Houston, TX, USA. The name “CrOp” is short for “creative opportunities,” something that designer David Peck is developing by focusing on socially responsible manufacturing practices and and charitable partnerships.
David Peck is scheduled to give a keynote during lunch on Sunday March 24 from 1:00pm - 2:30pm. View full schedule.
