A native New Yorker, Heather Huey graduated from Fordham University at Lincoln Center with a Bachelor's Degree (summa cum laude) in architecture and art history. She went on to study millinery at the Fashion Institute of Technology before starting her eponymous label. Since then Huey has broadened her design scope to include body pieces in addition to her signature headpieces.
Heather Huey's designs have been requested by stylists Alex White, Andrew Richardson, Camilla Nickerson, Karl Templer, Lori Goldstein, Ludivine Poiblanc, Nicola Formichetti, Patti Wilson, Robbie Spencer, Tabitha Simmons, and Tonne Goodman. Huey has collaborated with designers Simon Spurr, Siki Im, Christian Siriano, and Thuy for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Bryant Park. She was afforded the opportunity to create her own pop-up installation at HL23 under the Highline Park in New York City.
Her designs have been photographed by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia; Steven Klein for Vogue Italia; Mario Sorrenti for W; Jean-Baptiste Mondino for W; Mert & Marcus for Interview; Mariano Vivanco for Vogue Hommes Japan; Mario Testino for V magazine; Miles Aldridge Vogue Italia; Greg Kadel for Numéro France; Miguel Reveriego for Numéro France; Ellen von Unwerth for VMan; Terry Richardson for Purple Fashion; and Tom Munro for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue Italia.
