I'm pleased to introduce you to a new company that aims to create wearable, on-trend staples right here in the USA. Bow and Drape was founded by Aubrie Pagano to save us all from buyer's remorse and empower women everywhere to create the dresses, skirts and jackets that may exist only in their imaginations.
Bow and Drape allows you to customize each clothing item on their site using hand-selected silhouettes, fabric, and trim. In their own words: "We design it and you perfect it." Come with me over the jump to learn of their customizing ways...
With their Fall-Winter 2012 Collection designed by NBC Fashion Star Contestant Sarah Parrott, they've got strong talent and solid dress-making skills at work behind their ideas. The collection consists of six interchangable dresses, skirts, and jackets with fabric options they call a "mix of seasonal classsics," including wool and silk.
What I love most about this project is their commitment to making each piece here in the USA. In fact, they have a Kickstarter up right now to ensure they have enough capital to keep all production local, and I fully support their efforts. The Kickstarter closes on Thursday, October 18, so please do check it out and support them if you like the idea.
