Stephanie Paterek is a New York-based designer of custom boudoir couture for the pop cult (formerly NYC Sex Trash). A key player in the anti-fashion pop culture movement and "underwear as outerwear" trend, Stephanie's cult-followed statement pieces have transcended the realms of the alternative underground from the INKED queens of Celebrity Tattooing. Founded in 2009, Stephanie's original "NYC Sex Trash" collection launched with a yacht party hosted by infamous Sex in the City stylist Patricia Fields. Stephanie's alignment with Lady Gaga was later highlighted in Nicola Formichetti's S/S 2012 Fashion Week Pop Up Shop that featured Stephanie's "NYC Sex Trash: Phantasmagoria" Collection. In 2014, Onslot Creative partnered with Stephanie to launch Love Cage NYC, a line of luxe loungewear for the modern femme fatale. In 2015 Stephanie married longtime sweetheart, rock n' roll drummer Benny Horowitz of The Gaslight Anthem. They currently live with their scottie dog General Wallace in downtown Jersey City.
