Nineteenth + Seventh is a monthly feature bringing cutting-edge fashions from our global designers to your favorite tastemakers. Our goal? To help you tell their stories through our designers’ clothing. We believe that fashion is at its best when many voices–from independent designers to bloggers, stylists, and connoisseurs–make themselves heard. Interested in participating? Let us know.
How did you develop a love of fashion?
“My aunt was the Vice President of a bridal company in Boston. From the age of five I would stand in the store’s second floor windows on Newbury Street inspecting the dresses and modeling my own. I saw first hand how much joy a garment can bring to someone – even to tears. In fashion I found a means of self expression, more powerful than any other. Those early showroom moments imbued me with a respect for the power of fashion and a love of dress up that stays with me to this day.”
How is Nineteenth Amendment similar to the bridal showroom?
“At Nineteenth Amendment, we bring that same amount of joy to our shoppers… everyday. We source the most talented independent designers from across the globe and bring their inspiration, collections, and stories directly to you. Every Nineteenth Amendment purchase is like going into that showroom – I want everyone to experience the joy and awe of well made, beautiful, unique clothing.”
You’re not in bridal anymore…but what keeps you going?
“I love fashion. I love making clothing. I was born into this industry, it’s a part of my DNA. I want to make a better place for fashion. This is the mission of Nineteenth Amendment.”
And what spoke to you about this piece?
“I chose this dress because it reminded her of something Anna Wintour might wear. I found the bold print paired with a well designed silhouette appealing as something I could take from the office, to the manufacturer, to meeting with investors while still being appropriate and fashionably adventurous”…and she did just that.
