Foiled By Fashion Week! (And a pep talk from Janelle Monae)
Makers! We're so close to having some pants to beta-test and SO excited to show you the latest developments! But we can't because everything is on hold until our sample shop can recover from fashion week! See, even though most brands showing in New York don't manufacture their collections domestically, most produce their runway and market samples here–and since everyone needs their clothes at the same time there's huge, Garment District-wide traffic jam. And just because our collection is all WE think about doesn't mean we can compete with the heavy hitters that come calling this time of year!
So after another frustrating week of hearing "not yet" from our shops and taking care of very non-photogenic and un-shareworthy company business I was tickled to find this musical pep talk from one of my favorites, Janelle Monae (who, by the way, clearly understands the power of a great uniform).

The Willary Blazer so perfectly embodies what The Willary is all about that I couldn’t imagine calling it anything else.
