Designer Lindsay Degen began creating her quirky knits at the age of three when her grandmother gave her a set of knitting needles and taught her how to stitch. In pursuit of mastering her skill set, Lindsay attended the Rhode Island School of Design as well as Central Saint Martins in London. After graduating Degen moved to New York City to create her crafty, concept-based collections under the namesake DEGEN. Since 2010, when she graduated, she has gone on to design and produce an entire section of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, collaborate with Converse and My Little Pony, be named Forbes 30 under 30, begin a baby line, and most recently become a knitting professor at Parsons School of Design.
