Petite Epoque: Petite Fashion Line Made in USA
Petite line that offers high quality staple and trendy pieces for Petites made by Petites
As a petite woman myself, I know the struggles that short women face when it comes to shopping for that great pair of pants, dress or top and the extra expense that goes along with getting it fit to your body proportionately. If I kept all the tailoring receipts for all my garments all these years, I would probably be a millionaire by now.
Petite Epoque was created to give short, petite women all over the world the attention they deserve by creating a line specifically catered to fit proportionately and give fashion looks and trends that are feminine, functional, high quality, transitional and versatile. The line gives a feeling of relief by eliminating extra costs for alterations or tailoring by focusing on and recognizing correct proportion sizes. This is done by providing shorter lengths on skirts, leggings, jackets and dresses as well as attention to detail and the comfort it gives the wearer. It is catered to short, petite women of all ages and petite sizes and whose heights are within 4’9″ to 5’4″. The problem with other companies who carry “petite sizes” is that they make their clothes for women who are tall and skinny and these companies did not keep in mind that the average size of women is 5’4″ which is technically ‘petite’. Standard American sizes are based on a woman whose height is 5’6″, with Petite Epoque our sizing is based on a short, petite woman who is 5’0″. Hence, Petite Epoque is every short woman’s dream line. It recognizes a void in the marketplace for a better fit and size. The line specializes in women’s jackets, leggings, skirts, dresses and tops. It hopes to venture into cocktail and evening wear in the near future.
WHAT WE NEED AND WHAT YOU GET
In order to get this line fully off the ground, we need a total of $30,000. This money will go towards manufacturing costs, marketing, business administration etc. The minimum we would need to produce 2-3 pieces of the line is $10,000 which is why we are starting out at our minimum amount. Of course we hope to exceed much more than $10,000 in order to fulfill our goal.

We are making a huge impact in the fashion industry by supporting domestic manufacturing and therefore, all garments are made in the USA. Supporting domestic manufacturing helps create jobs and keeps money here in the US.
Luckily, I have many contacts in the industry and have made good relationships with fabric vendors and manufacturing companies who believe in the line and are willing to work with us.
