Caycee Black balances her work as a painter, ballerina and fashion designer. After graduating from Parsons School of Design New York in 2003 and working for Anna Sui, Club monaco, TIBI, and Reed Krakoff, Black has now launched her own label. The Fall 2009 premiere namesake collection received Best New Designer titles in WWD, Daily Candy and Lucky Magazine.

She collaborates with bands Asobi Seksu, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Regina Spektor, Young Galaxy, and ZAZA, styling performances, photoshoots and music videos.
