That’s 5 with Andrea Bergart

In honor of Women’s History Month, StockX will be spotlighting some of our favorite women in the game.

For our next installment, we spoke to Andrea Bergart, an artist and designer living and working in New York City. Bergart’s work references diverse visual traditions including African textiles, urban fashion, outlines of basketball courts, and geometric abstraction. Her involvement in fashion and Downtown Girls Basketball (an all-women basketball community) inspired her to design basketball handbags, as well as paintings and solar prints highlighting WNBA and NBA players, and their culture. Andrea has broken into a male-dominated sports industry with her great deal of involvement in the community of basketball and her unique designs which have been setting trends on and off the court.

Who are some of the women that have influenced you?
