The Future Of Fashion Is Here, And It's Tailored Just For You.

Katherine Williford

The concept of a custom made garment isn’t new. In fact, it’s how clothing was made up until the Industrial Revolution. Since ancient times, garments were either made at home or cut and sewn to fit by small dress shops. But over just a few decades, there was a monumental shift in how clothing was bought and sold. The early 1800’s marked the rise of factories and department stores, who formed a supply and distribution chain for ready-made clothing. Because clothing was now produced en masse, those department stores had to devise a way to specify sizing for the first...

I assumed that it would re-emerge easily when the...

Katherine Williford

*Before reading this blog post, I highly recommend that you read this article written by Emi Ito, a Japanese-American who speaks about cultural appropriation of traditional Japanese garments. I consulted with Emi while writing this piece, and feel that it is important to first know her opinion before reading mine.

A Day In Our New Studio

Katherine Williford

As you may have heard, we moved to a new studio at the start of 2021! This was a very exciting transition, since we had long run out of space in our old location (Charity and I were constantly bumping into each other, and the tiny space made keeping clean so much more difficult). We were excited to get back to work after our Winter Break and finalizing our new setup. Here's just a peek at what we're working on day-to-day!   Organizing Our New Shop Area  Our goal (once things are safe again!) is to allow appointments for customers...
