How Line Meets Market Needs:
Bri’s experience has taught her that women not only require fun, unique, and comfortable clothing, but they also look for functionality. Bri’s first collection has successfully covered all of these objectives. For example, the high waisted skirt which is available in grey or black. This skirt was designed to be feminine, playful, classy, and practical. It was made more functional through the addition of two deep pockets at the hip. Bri has personally worn this skirt to a networking event. It eliminated the need to carry a bulky bag and allowed her to carry her necessities (business cards and cell phone) while keeping her hands free. A client saw this skirt and commented, “A skirt with pockets? Genius! Only you could create something so smart and sassy!”
The garments in the Fall, 2011 collection range from $125.00 to $275.00 (retail).
