FINE WOOL WRAP SNAP TUNIC DRESS
We LOVE Finding out about Fashion in the Hudson Valley. Living so close to Manhattan and knowing that NYC is the fashion capitol of the world, it’s surprising there aren’t more young fashion designers finding their way to the Hudson Valley with it’s less expensive rents for studio’s and design shops.

We’re so glad Gail Travis of New Form Prospective (NFP Studio) found Beacon!
In these rapidly changing times, NFP fosters the concept of transition, transformation and evolution. Gail Travis has designed a collection of smart geometric shapes and styles that are of the moment, but NOT bound by time! Each piece has the ability to LINK, LAYER, FOLD, SNAP, SHIFT or CONNECT, creating a platform for PERSONAL EXPRESSION.
Ultimately, encouraging each individual’s NEW Form & Prospective!
Designer Gail Travis calls the flagship Beacon studio her base. What started as a pop-up store a few years ago is now open by appointment only. She also has a store in NYC at 215 Mulberry Street.
Beacon NY Flagship Store & Studio
After working in the high-end fashion design world in NYC for 10 years for companies such as Calvin Klein, Shelly Steffee and Vera Wang, Gail was fatefully guided to design her own brand free from mainstream trends. The GAIL TRAVIS Collection is inspired by her surroundings, personal interactions, experience of movement and architecture and structure. Ultimately, these inspirations morphed into the modular building-block of her designs.
Knitted sweaters (NIT), hand felted dresses (FELT) and tops and foundation jersey pieces of TANKS, BODYSUITS & LEGGINGS (PHRAME) collectively present a unique line of architectural building blocks.
NFP additionally offers a distinctive line of TUNICS, DRESSES and FLOOR-LENGTH GOWNS using a signature felting technique, one of the oldest methods of fabric-making.
NEW FORM PROSPECTIVE marries felting with diaphanous featherweight jerseys in subtle, muted colors creating stunning, sophisticated, modern foils for layering knits.
