Stigma NYC by Pedro Juan is a new concept in women’s contemporary clothing that can easily translate from day to evening wear, appealing to the young woman of today.

Our clothes will take you on a journey from the retro mod style of the 60's to the clean futuristic lines of today. I draw my inspiration from pop art, rock & roll, and NYC's striking architecture to create clothes that appeal to sophisticated women with cutting edge style.  Stigma NYC delivers versatile garments that are hand-crafted in New York City using superior quality fabrics that reflect the essence of active city life.

Pedro Juan, was born in Medellin Colombia based in NYC, has worked in the Fashion Industry at companies including Jill Stuart, Jones New York and Polo Ralph Lauren and today he is the founder and creative director of Stigma NYC.
