Gregory Scott Angel

Gregory Scott Angel, a graduate of Parsons the New School for Design, has honed his skills as a patternmaker, tailor, technical designer and product developer for multiple brands over the past decades. His expertise has led such brands as John Varvatos, Steven Alan, Ralph Lauren, Joe Fresh and e-commerce brand Bonobos to increased sales, quality assurance and better clothing construction practices. He has helped start brands such as WHIT and ONIA and served as former senior director of technical design for global fashion at Victorinox, where he specialized in tailored blazers, multifunctional outerwear and working with factories to achieve higher standards of construction for the iconic Swiss Army knife brand. He has traveled extensively through Europe, Asia and South America working with factories and mills on quality assurance and product development/production.

Angel originally moved to NYC to pursue a degree in music from the Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College, where he graduated with a major in performance and a minor in fashion and textiles. He produced three collections under his own name and earned the B Michael Fashion Design Award in 2005 for his provocative menswear, presenting a progressive runway show and fashion installation at former art gallery ISE Cultural Foundation in Soho before attending Parsons.

Angel was invited to teach at his alma mater while he maintained a full-time position in the industry, which enabled him to keep his teaching consistent with industry practices. He has taught construction classes and specialty studios in avant-garde practices and traditional tailoring techniques, and he wrote and created the first menswear track for the AAS program, a trajectory of patterning and construction for the modern wardrobe.

In addition to owning and operating his own design studio in Brooklyn, Angel currently consults with startup brands as a patternmaker, technical engineer and product developer. He serves as an advisor to the mother-daughter duo Dur Doux, a womenswear design company based in Washington, DC that has been featured in local magazines, shown in NYC and recently had a photo shoot with Beyoncé and her daughter. He is a partner in the up-and-coming medical-based clothing company Patch10.

Angel’s belief in the art of apparel has kept him schooled in various forms of manipulation and embellishments. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking and baking.
