At Brass, We Make Chic Easy.
How do we do it? We design the perfect foundational pieces for your capsule wardrobe. We believe a capsule wardrobe – 20 to 30 pieces that can be easily mixed and matched – is the key to looking chic with ease.
You're chic, practical and sophisticated.
You've learned that fast-fashion isn't worth the cheap price tag. You value clothing that fits well, feels great and outlasts trends. You're ready to build a better wardrobe. And we're here to help. You can find more resources on capsule wardrobes on our blog.
OUR PRODUCT PROMISE
We think long and hard (so you don’t have to) about the foundational pieces every woman needs in her closet. Then, we design the best version of these pieces with attention to fit, fabric, and feminine design. We design all of our clothing according to these 5 principles:
Is the garment beautiful? Is it sophisticated and chic?
Is the garment well-constructed? Does it fit? Is the fabric substantial and will it hold up over multiple washes and wears?
Can the garment be worn to work and on the weekends? Can it be dressed up and down? Can you wear it through multiple seasons?
Is the garment easy to care for? Is it wrinkle resistant? Does it travel well?
Purpose. Does the garment serve a purpose in my life? Is it timeless and will it continue to serve a purpose?
Does the garment serve a purpose in my life? Is it timeless and will it continue to serve a purpose?
We knew we couldn't be the only women who felt frustrated by the fashion and apparel industry. So, we set out to create a new option.
Jay Adams and Katie Doyle launched Brass in September 2014 with a small run of 5 dress styles. We were at a point in our lives where we could no longer stomach fast-fashion. Our careers had progressed to a point where we needed to look more professional and more put-together. We were also becoming increasingly aware of the toll that disposable fashion takes on our planet and people’s lives. We couldn’t afford the $300-400 designer labels you see at Neiman-Marcus, nor did we want to spend that type of money on clothes.
We knew we couldn’t be the only women who felt frustrated by the fashion and apparel industry. So, we set out to create a new option. Jay's experience working with expert apparel manufacturers and Katie’s background in online fashion retail made us the perfect pair to tackle the challenge. The fact that we're best friends and have known each other since freshman year of high school sealed the deal.
While we started Brass to satisfy our own needs, it’s our community of smart, strong, passionate women who keep up going. Join us over on Instagram or sign-up to be a part of our Real Model database. Our customers are helping us build this business every day and we can't wait to meet you!
