Isley was started in 2018 by the artist Skyler Brickley as a platform for high-end fashion and unique art objects. Isley is based in Brooklyn, New York. Isley is named after Skyler's first niece, who at four years old has enough personality to power a small city. Skyler splits his time between managing Isley, designing clothing, making art, and playing with his dog, Panda.
