Who's Design By U?
Design by U is a company inspired by fashion, art, natural elements, and beautiful colors. Being inspired by rich, artistic environments, cultures, and heritages of the world, we introduce our designs by interpreting them in a fresh modern way. Our blends are a symphony of the East and West, old and new, contemporary and traditional and rustic and refined.
Design by U is Modern Eclectic Style with an Ethnic Twist.
Our designs result in an artful blend of nature and imagination. A complement of natural elements…and a textual medley of accents…. Earth tone colors of nature… and different types of hues are combined with naturally dyed elements for a touch of color.
Each product presented by Design by U is hand-made, rare, and unique.
We've evolved. We are now more than a jewelry company. We have body products, apparel and we are also hosting our 'SIP & DESIGN' workshop series.
Small changes eventually add up to huge results. We're Moving from Bushwick to our new Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Location at Bklyn Commons. During this new exciting transition, Trendy Market will be closed from 11-11 through 11-17. Our online store will still be open 24/7. We look forward to seeing you at our new location. You will love your new shopping experience at our new space.
'Let's Get Waisted'
Our most popular Workshop, 'Let's Get Waisted' is so much more than waistbeads. In this workshop, women learn the history and Art of Waistbeads while making their very own. Each woman experiences the bond of sisterhood through engaging and sharing experiences. View our Workshops Tab to read more on this workshop.
Empowered Women Empower Women
Empowering women ultimately starts with you. Show your support for the women in your life, show them they matter, and remind them that they are strong and capable of doing anything they put their minds to. Changing the narrative for women and seeing real change is a collaborative effort. Us women need to stick together.
