In 2009, Parsons graduate, Stephanie Hinson, began designing custom dresses for friends. Since then, she has designed commissions for Vivian Girls, Coasting, Ian Svenonius, and Chain & the Gang as well as numerous other indie bands, and DIY performance artists.

Although she makes her home in Brooklyn, she continues to mine inspiration from her southern childhood during which her time was spent poring over fashion and music magazines, making clothes for her dolls, stumbling around in nature, and losing herself in the solitary silence of bird-watching.
