PARDINGTON COLLECTIVE provides our customers with beautiful, high-quality pieces that give them the confidence to pursue living their best life. We want to deliver clothing that enables our customer to own any room they walk in and help them cultivate a life of beauty and inspiration with our art. Our collections offer timeless silhouettes that exude effortless modern sophistication with an edge. Our clothing is comfortable and versatile with fit, quality, and style at the forefront of our mind.
We want our customers to purchase an item because of how it makes them feel while wearing it or how it adorns the walls of their home. Trendy is never the goal.

Owner Claire Pardington, an entrepreneurial spirit since birth, developed the idea for this business at just 8 years old to combine her passion for art, design, story telling, and working with others. The idea came to her after learning about Andy Warhol and the creative minds at "The Factory" that intersected each other's work during their time together. While collaboration within the creative world today is not a new concept, we are redefining the collective experience from a contemporary perspective with regard to fashion, art, and lifestyle pieces. We aim to offer a full sensory experience for our customers and collaborators looking to cultivate a more beautiful life for themselves and invest in timeless, meaningful, and high quality items.

Owner and founder of PARDINGTON COLLECTIVE, she imagined this business concept at just 8 years old and has led a very determined path to making this life long dream come true. After attending the Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked with Francisco Costa during his time as Creative Director at Calvin Klein Collection. From there, she was offered a position at Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Collection and quickly worked her way up to being the lead designer of the Designer Collection at just 26 years old. She most recently has earned her MBA from University of Michigan's Ross Business School where she developed the business acumen, funding, and mentorship to officially start this collection.
Kayo came to New York City from Japan over 30 years ago and has since created a name for herself among the "up and coming artists" in the New York and LA area. Her work hangs in many established galleries, offices, and commercial spaces and they range from paintings, installations, and wall mounts to decorative objects, and sculptures. Kayo's artwork has been on display in many esteemed shows and exhibits in New York, LA, and Miami since 2014 and most recently has taken her work overseas to exhibits in Spain. She is inspired by emotions and how psychology influences those emotions (she loves Carl Jung), as well as natures beauty and colors. Kayo is PARDINGTON COLLECTIVE's first official collaborator and is currently creating the artwork that will be showcased on the lining of all tailored pieces in our first collection!
