Dedicated to experimentation and exploration, Patricia von Musulin has worked extensively to redefine the notion of “accessories”.
Bold, her work has been featured in international advertising campaigns, countless magazines as well as "on the runway" with both American and International fashion designers.
Estee Lauder, Revlon, Elizabeth Arden, Lancôme, Victoria's Secret, Absolute Vodka, Cover Girl, Gap, Kohler, and Goldenpoint have used her accessories in their advertising. A partial listing of fashion designers who have featured her work in both their advertising campaigns as well as in their runway shows include: Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Adrienne Vittandi, Bill Blass, Geoffrey Beene, Carolina Herrera, Chado, Ralph Rucci, Bally, Cole Haan, and Bogner. Her first working relationships were with Donna Karan and Louis D’olio for Anne Klein, Pauline Trigere, Georgio Sant Angelo and Perry Ellis. Perry Ellis personally nominated her to the "Council of Fashion Designer of America" when he was the President. Her work has appeared editorially in both national and international magazines: Vogue, German Vogue, Italian Vogue, French Vogue, Vogue Taiwan, Harpers Bazaar, Harper’s Bazaar en Espanol, Trace, Numero, Flair, Cosmopolitan, Cosmopolitan en Espanol,Town and Country, Vibe, Latina, Essence, “W” Magazine, Vissionaire, Zink, Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Elle, Elle Décor, Forbes Magazine, American Express Departure Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, to name just a few. Feature articles have appeared in "The New York Times", "Corrierre Della Serra", "The International Herald Tribune", "Dallas Daily News" and "Women’s Wear Daily"
Creating a body of work known as much for its powerful originality and signature style as for its unique aesthetic ambition, Patricia von Musulin seeks to use her work to re-imagine the very idea of jewelry itself. Her collections employ a wide array of materials to evoke deep symbolism and psychological associations. Crystal-like transparency evoke the undulating currents of water, the source of all life. In contrast, the deep black tones of her "Ebony Collection" reflect our cultural fascination with "The Primitive" and the multiracial nature of contemporary urban life.
Her work is in the permanent collections of "The Metropolitan Museum of Art", "The Boston Museum of Fine Arts", "The National Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution" as well as "The Museum at the Fashion institute of Technology".
Although Patricia von Musulin lives a very international lifestyle, at home in Istanbul or Prague as much as New York, all of her designs are manufactured in New York City.
