Vaquera began in 2013 as a fashion fanfiction, a way for founder Patric DiCaprio to explore his obsession with clothes. Since 2016, with the addition of Bryn Taubensee and Claire Sullivan, and now in partnership with Dover Street Market, this fantasy has become much more real.
Vaquera means cowgirl in Spanish, after a nickname Patric used to get while washing dishes. The name now represents a New York collective that creates clothes for characters in their city, real or imagined, and for their very real customers around the world.
