Peyton Henderson is a senior at North Carolina State University, seeking a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion and Textile Management with a concentration in Fashion Development and Product Management. Her anticipated graduation date is May 2020. Peyton has been interested in fashion since she was a little girl. She attended the Summer Textile Exploration Program (STEP) at NCSU in 2015, and as they say “the rest is history”.
Peyton is very passionate about fashion, and creating ready-to-wear looks for a confident client. When Peyton is not designing she enjoys spending time with Nougat, her rescue pup from St. Thomas.
Peyton’s collection was inspired by her time working at White House Black Market. She wanted to create a collection that focused on tailoring and workwear. Her interest was in creating a capsule collection so her customer could buy the entire collection and create several looks, more than just the ones seen on the runway. All of her pieces coordinate with other pieces to create “new” and fresh looks. Her customer is a confident woman who will love the look that her line will give her.
