harvey faircloth

I try to keep this site as "commercial free" as possible. But I have to take a moment to brag for my friends Katie, Mara and Abby who have just launched their own clothing company: Harvey Faircloth.

I moved to New York City straight out of college because that's where the best design jobs were. There is perhaps no better place to be young, single, and employed! I had an amazing group of friends to run around the city with.. Saturday mornings skating in Central Park, afternoons spent getting to know the Met and the MOMA, dinners at Grange Hall (sadly now closed). We worked hard at our jobs all week, and we spent the remainder of our time getting to know the city we now called home.

Katie, Abby and Mara were all part of this group. They are lovely girls, and so very talented: Katie is designing the clothes, Mara handling the sales/business side, and Abby's over the design/branding. And did I mention the clothes are beautiful?

It takes a certain amount of courage to do the things you've always dreamed of. These girls are doing it, and I am so so proud of them.

I just came across your blog the other day and I thought I might tell you how lovely it is!

Good for your friends, too, and how nice of you to post a little message for them.

Hi there,

I also have been meaning to say hello! We don't know each other, but I came across your blog awhile back, and it really is great! I have you linked in my sidebar, and many of my friends have commented on how much they like it too. I love how "clean" your pages look, and I love your sense of design and color. You have done a really nice job with this!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Kindly,
Mary

Thanks for sharing!! I need new clothes like crazy and the shapes seem unique yet not too trendy. I love those red tights!
