December 28, 2019
Here we are again - closing out one year and looking forward at what's to come in the next! It's a tradition of ours to share some reflections and make commitments for the future of our community. Brass is what it is because of the constant communication with you, our incredible women, so let's take a look back at our learnings from 2019 and how we'll apply our takeaways in 2020 - it's gonna be a great year!
We started off the year by extending our size range up to 3X (Size 24) for six of our Core styles. In order to do this properly, we invested in a new fit model, new patterns, and more time with our technical designer. We continued to add more styles throughout the year and nowcurrently carry 18 styles in sizes XXS-3X.
Throughout the course of the year, we worked with more sustainable fibers and formed relationships with innovative mills. While this wasn't an express goal for 2019, it was on our radar and our growth made it possible for us to afford and buy fabrics for which we previously could not meet the minimums.
We added some really pivotal new categories this year - suiting and denim! The Blazer and Suit Pant were particularly well-received and built on our suiting with The City Jacket and City Pant at the end of the year.
The Guild blew us away this year! We really put time and attention into growing this community and we got so much more than we ever expected in return. This group has brought so much joy and insight into our daily life in the office - not a day goes by where we don't refer to the Guild!
Thank you for another great year! Whether you purchased from Brass, posted in The Guild, opened our emails, told a friend or liked a photo on IG, all of these actions were in support of this thing we are building and we cannot thank you enough. If you have thoughts or feedback, we're all ears and can be reached individually via our emails below (we mean it when we say you'll get a response :) Can't wait to see what 2020 has in store!
With love & gratitude,
Jay & Katie
