Fauxgerty

Whenever you can, try to support new talent and young brands. Getting a label off the ground is tricky. There is so much competition and people are more discerning than ever about how and where they spend their money.

Locally made. Sustainable. Cruelty-free. 

These aren't just terms that apply to our food but also, now, to our clothes. Fauxgerty, a little shop nestled down a side street in the ultra chic Central West End neighborhood in St. Louis, is determined to fight the wastefulness that runs rampant in the fashion industry. There's recycled polyester in their faux suede jackets and upcycled plastic bottles in their lining. The brand's founder, Chrissy Fogerty, is proving that sleek edgy designs and a mindfulness for the environment can go hand-in-hand. This is something that discerning customers are tapping into and truly want to support. Not only are Fauxgerty's buttery soft biker jackets and slouchy worn-in tees something you'll truly want to wear they also represent a greater shift in consumption and production - a visible reminder to buy less and shop smart.

Fauxgerty has been selected as a contestant in the Caleres Fashion Entrepreneur Competition. Five fashion makers will face off in a shark tank (or dragon's den if your in the UK) style competition where a $10,000 prize will be given to one winner and a $5,000 prize to a runner-up. The winner will also receive mentorship and guidance from industry experts. Establishing a new brand is a trying endeavor and I'm excited that St. Louis is taking steps to help nourish the talent that's present in the city.

I'm partnering with St. Louis Fashion Week to give away two tickets to the event taking place on November 10th at 6:30pm. If you'd like to come (and hang out with me) please leave a comment on this post indicating that you'd like to attend. Travel and accommodation costs are not included in this giveaway so please only enter if you are able to make it to St. Louis for the event.

Flik Hall Giveaway - Now Closed

Flik Hall is one of my favourite new designers. I've gotten totally hooked on her insanely well crafted and original pieces over the last few weeks. Flik was kind enough to lend me a few pieces from her S/S 11 collection a few weeks ago and now, after wearing them, I can't quite get them out of my head.

Last night I had the first event to kick start the engine behind a new idea I've had. It aimed to bring together a small group of people to discuss their relationship with clothes, shopping, and style. I'll leave the details of it until later, but I was so excited because a few brands and designers that I've worked with in the past were kind enough to contribute to the process.

Flik offered to send something over for the goodie bags... I was totally blown away by what she had sent when I unwrapped it yesterday afternoon. Being way too generous, she created small leather pieces that are lined in fabric from her AW11 collection. They are beautiful and so cool. Perfect for carrying around your oyster card during the day or fill it with a few notes and your id when you head out in the evening.

To get your hands on a little piece of Flik Hall: leave a comment below clearly stating that you'd like to be entered in the giveaway. The winner will be chosen on Monday. Please note: this giveaway is open to international readers.

Giveaway Winner Announced

The Mulberry for Target giveaway has officially ended and a winner has been chosen at random. Thanks to all that entered! Hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas. I ventured out today to check out the sales and picked up two dresses from the Swedish shop Monki. Everywhere was crammed with people and the abundance of massive puffy coats made it even more difficult than normal to navigate the rails. I'm planning a little photo shoot out by a frozen lake tomorrow. Stay tuned for the result...
