About Built by Wendy
Wendy Mullin is one of New York’s most established independent fashion designers and the driving force behind the Built by Wendy clothing line. She is also a successful businesswoman, published author and sought after creative consultant.
Built by Wendy infuses classic, clean American style with contemporary flair; every season, Wendy Mullin draws inspiration from pop culture and music, from her personal travels, from her Midwestern upbringing, and from classic and contemporary film and literature. These influences reveal themselves subtly—in each season’s custom-designed prints and textiles, for example—and more explicitly in Built by Wendy’s well-known graphic tees. Whether it’s a To Kill a Mockingbird printed shirt, a beaded Native American belt, a cabled fisherman sweater, or a canvas tote-bag inspired dress, Built by Wendy always manages to present a fresh take on traditional attire.
Built by Wendy has always had a cult following of artists, musicians, comedians, actors, and fashion stylists. Known for its intentionally low key brand profile and devoted clientele, Built by Wendy has long been considered a hidden gem to fashion insiders.
