I first met Morgan when I ended up DJing her birthday at Mulberry Project a couple months ago. Connected through a mutual friend, I soon learned about Morgan Clifford, her self-titled designer label, and fell in love with the chic, feminine designs! Already in the league of designers who have had their digs worn by mega starlets Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson, Morgan is finding a way to stand out in a city filled with emerging talent. Get to know more about Morgan's NYC life and who she wants to dress next in her full Cult Chat below>>
WHY NEW YORK CITY?
My family is close by in CT and I always knew I would go right to NYC after graduating from college. My first job was an assistant position at the popular fashion line, Alice + Olivia. Eight years later, I never see myself leaving. Lucky for me, my fiancee's career is here too.
THE CITY NEVER SLEEPS...WHAT TIME DID YOU GET TO BED LAST NIGHT?
I went to bed last night at 2 am. I was watching the Kardashians Season 10 on Hulu!
PLAY HOST FOR US... WHERE WOULD YOU TAKE US FOR
COFFEE - Dunkin Donuts -- they are all over and they have the best iced coffee. Medium caramel iced coffee with skim is my go-to.
DINNER - Quality Italian in midtown. The best chicken parm ever!
COCKTAILS - Fraunces Tavern, an old bar/restaurant I love right off of Wall Street. It's one of the oldest bars in the City. It's low key and quaint.
PARTYING - my couch! on a Friday night you can typically find me watching Netflix with sweatpants on. It's my favorite part of my week.
WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Adele, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber
Morgan Clifford coats on Sydney Park and Ashley Benson
FAVORITE PROJECT SO FAR?
It's all really been my favorite. I can't just chose one. I love having people wear what I design it's so rewarding.
ANY CREATIVES YOU WANT TO COLLABORATE WITH?
There is this designer I follow on Instagram. He is pretty new too. His line is called 531 Jerome. I'm very intrigued by it and love it. He makes a lot of awesome jackets.
ARE YOU A "REGULAR" ANYWHERE?
I get my salad for lunch every day at a place called Balducci's.
DREAM DINNER PARTY -- WHICH 7 GUESTS WOULD YOU INVITE?
My fiancee-John, Taylor Swift, the Pope, Jesus, Leonardo DiCaprio, Walt Disney, Marilyn Monroe.
WHERE DO YOU SHOP?
I wear a lot of black. Black jeans, black t-shirts, and black jackets. I think it's a NY thing. My favorite places to shop are Zara, Intermix, and Saks.
DO YOU HAVE A MUSE?
I actually love the 60s -- but i like the 60s mixed with modern "motorcycle style." I can't think of one person who embodies this. The closest who comes to it is probably Cara Delevingne.
Yes, I see myself here forever. If I end up moving because of a family- I only see myself in a house outside of the City. I would love a pool and driveway. But for now the City is perfect.
I know a lot of people hate being in Times Square, but I love Broadway- so any chance I get to go up to the theaters and see a show.. I'm the happiest! My second favorite place is Battery Park. The new Brookfield place mall in the World Financial Center is gorgeous and I live close by.
MOTTO YOU LIVE BY?
Treat others how you would want to be treated
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON AND WHERE CAN WE SEE IT?
Right now I'm working on a coat for Ariana Grande! I hope it works out and if it does, you will see it.
