About Child of the Universe NYC


Individual Fashion

Despite the Universe's enormity, we are all unique individuals. Our Child of the Universe garments are hand finished by local artists and artisans, making each product a one-of-a-kind piece that today's assertive woman can boldly wear.

Premium Materials

Comfort and quality should go hand in hand. We source the highest quality and luxury alpaca and cottons directly in Peru and our super 120s merino wool and leather from top global suppliers. We want you to feel the special care we put into crafting each item everytime you wear Child of the Universe NYC pieces.

Socially Responsible Fashion

It is not about marketing or PR (this is probably the first time you read that social responsability is core to our values). We are focused on: sharing the upside with our employees, providing fair wages, and helping them develop and improve their professional skills.
