Hometown: New York, NY
Iris Mansard is an international fashion designer but to her ardent fans, she’s known as The Raincoat Lady.
After attending university in Munich, Germany, Iris went to Paris and learned about handweaving. She realized right away that she would find fulfillment in textile design.
Her raincoats are a sublime merger of high fashion and durable function. Made from a lightweight, breathable, washable, crease resistant fabric, they’re comfortable and attractive in any weather. She offers a 10 year warranty on her fabrics.
Her line features capes, jackets and coats in knee, calf and ankle lengths, with and without hoods. She enhances her designs with geometric patterns, trims and hand-painted flourishes.
