Paper Fashion + Bow and Drape = Local, Ethical Fashion Magic

bow and drape collaboration with paper fashion made in the usa


Announcement: two of my personal faves have come together to make sustainable fashion magic!

Bow & Drape is a company that custom makes women's clothing in classic silhouettes in New York. Pieces are made to order to customers specifications and size requirements, including details like choosing different fabrics or cuts, which means inventory and usage of fabrics are much more efficient than if the entire line were pre-made for each season. The custom-made model also builds more of a relationship between you and the clothing. You can plan the details yourself and get something you'll wear for years to come.

Paper Fashion is a super-talented fashion illustrator that I discovered when she did an etheral (and amazing) collab with The Glamourai and Genlux magazine. I love what's she done for Bow and Drape!

While Bow and Drape had many options for an edgier girl in fall and winter (think jumpsuits with leather details and sequined midi pencils), this most recent collaboration and their resort collection embodies a pretty prepster's warm weather daydreams.
