When you turned that childhood nightgown into a minidress (shouldn’t have left those scissors out, Ma), you broadcasted a lifelong refusal to be hemmed in by another’s sartorial vision.
Nip and tuck your way to a tailored closet with customizable designs from Bow & Drape.
Former strategist Aubrie Pagano refashioned her career after a shopping trip to Newbury Street failed to net her a party dress. She spent a year as an apprentice to local designer Emily Muller before creating an online shopping experience that lets you massage your wardrobe basics.
Budding von Furstenbergs choose from six silhouettes (wrap dress, pencil skirt) before refining a piece according to color, hem length, sleeve, neckline, and trim. Time-pressed fashion plates can shop more than 3,000 preconceived combinations.
Pieces are sewn in NYC’s Garment District and shipped posthaste; you get your item within three weeks (dare your seamstress to top that).
Your new look is all sewn up.
Available at bowanddrape.com, $50-$350.
