Peach Carr

A self-taught fashion designer, Peach Carr, burst onto the fashion scene with her appearances on Season 8 and Season 2 All Stars of PROJECT RUNWAY. During her time on the show, the Lake Forest native’s design esthetic was dubbed, “Country Club Chic” by Tim Gunn, who challenged her to further develop her brand and collection.

Taking inspiration from the music and vibe of the 60’s and 70’s during her youth, Peach designs chic fashions that are also super comfortable to wear. Her fashion designs work for the woman on the go and easily fit a size two up to a fourteen. Her day to evening creations are crafted by women in Chicago and offer low maintenance care as they are machine washable – even the gowns. One of her most notable creations is the Swarovski crystal embellished gown she sent down the runway at the annual St. Jude Hospital’s annual fund raising “Dream a Little Dream” fashion show. Included in her fan base are numerous North Shore women, along with Dina Manzo (Real Housewives of New Jersey), Alex McCord (Real Housewives of New York), Linda Yu (ABC-7 News), and Nora Dunn (Saturday Night Live).

At York Furrier, we are thrilled to be carrying Peach Carr’s newest accessory creation! From the New Yorker’s cartoon pages, Peach creates whimsical handbags that are absolutely FUNctional. Each piece is handcrafted with a humorous motif and trimmed with unique closures. Shapes include a silver chain trimmed oval clutch, the thin leather trimmed baguette, a jeweled knuckle handle minaudiere, and a rhinestone closure pouch clutch. For day or evening use, these Peach Carr handbags will add personality to any outfit.
