About us

About the brand


Created in 2018 by French designer Vanessa Duman, French-York is inspired by a marriage of two cultures: New York and Paris. Indeed, French-York is more than a fashion brand. It’s a cultural experience: French style with a New York twist. It’s a wink toward two iconic looks and two iconic cities.

French-York is designed in the US. The quality of our products is one of the most important considerations.  Our comfortable and warm adults sweatshirts are Made in USA and are Eco-Friendly. Our t-shits are 100% cotton. We also collaborate with local business, the embroidery is made in Lower East Side (Manhattan) and our print is made in Dumbo (Brooklyn).

Our kids collection is cute and fun and our men & women collection is urban and classy. 

All created for you!


About the designer 

Vanessa Duman was born and raised in Paris, where she studied journalism for five years before becoming a press officer in fashion. She is passionate about traveling, and has worked in five countries. Vanessa also loves getting outside her comfort zone. In 2018 she decided to start a new adventure: becoming a fashion designer in NYC. French-York is inspired by her life in Paris and by her time in New York. Vanessa wanted to create a clothing brand that reflected both cultures. The result is French-York: a fusion of the urban edge of New York and the sophistication of Paris.
