I started writing a little bit about the illustrious Judi Rosen and then I realized that her real biography pretty much summed up everything I wanted to say so perfectly. So I copied it below for all to read.
But before I do that......I'll just give my own brief synopsis of my love for Judi. Her East Village store The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly was my favorite store ever. It was quirky and weird filled with trees and miniature figures and Judi was my god. I just thought she was the coolest thing ever. Then we became friends and I was equally intrigued, especially her deep love for clowns. She's such a good soul but more importantly her jeans are seriously the BEST BUTT JEANS I'VE EVER SEEN. They will make you into the goddess you have always desired to be.
If you followed her throughout the years, then you'll know she took a bit of a break but she's back folks. And I couldn't be more excited to stock her jeans. For summer, we've got her shorts with side cutout detail in lilac and black. They feel like butter on and they're only $158. They will seriously be your favorite pair of shorts. Come in and try a pair on today!
And now for her actual biography:
Judi Rosen New York denim is to be coveted and hoarded. There are urban legends of women starting catfights in shops once the prospect of the "last pair" is suddenly realized. Friendships have been made simply by the acknowledgement that you're "in the know" by wearing Judi's jeans. Fans appreciate the impeccable tailoring, unbelievably flattering fit, and Judi’s cheeky play on overt sexuality.
Her premium denim has New York on the label for a reason. Judi built her brand on her fascination and love for the style and movement of the city. Her fabrics are completely domestic, and the sewing is done right here in New York City’s legendary garment district. The skill and deep knowledge of high-end construction in New York is unparalleled.
In addition to designing for her Judi Rosen New York label, Judi has shown her artwork in New York galleries. Her art is directly influenced by her love of tailoring and fabrics, graphic design, and the emotionally unhinged direction of abstract expressionism.
Glowing testimonials from prominent industry insiders:
Iconic New Yorker, “Sex and the City” costume designer and longtime fan, Patricia Field said: “Judi Rosen is an innovative yet marketable designer.” She continued, “Judi’s combo is original and commercial. What more could anyone ask for?”
Cindy Greene, co-founder of art-house rebel-prep label Libertine, lives for Judi Rosen’s trademark jeans: “Judi’s jeans are interesting. They’re high-waisted, which is brilliant…And they’re totally sexy. They make your ass look amazing, no matter the size.” Nylon’s Alexandra Gershman seconds that sentiment; “You’d have to be a pancake not to have a nice butt in these jeans!”
