All of our garments are designed with function holding the highest importance.

Barbara Riordan

From the moment she used the sewing skills taught to her by her mother to transform a World War Two-era Japanese robe into a disco jacket, clothing designer Barbara Riordan has turned traditional fashion upside down. Melding feminine with eclectic at Pariah, Barbara has created a clothing line for women looking for fresh, modern apparel guaranteed to get a second look. Favoring whimsical prints and unexpected textures, Pariah designs offer an uncommon flair in women’s fashion. Barbara uses fine fabrics and her wicked eye for design to create flirty-with-an-edge confections in her studio.
