Ivey Abitz Creates Look of Loyalty, A New Women's Clothing Collection Inspired by Man's Best Friend
Clothing design label Ivey Abitz unveiled its first collection of 2013 in a look book of original watercolor paintings inspired by the loyalty of dogs and cats.
The look book, available at http://IveyAbitz.com, was inspired by antique photographs the designer has collected over the years that feature ladies with their dogs and cats, and in some cases, raccoons and skunks.
Though the paintings themselves are a work of art (the designer is a trained fine art painter), they serve to represent the collection of clothing, which, in true Ivey Abitz style, is a unique modern take on antique and vintage clothing.
The new Ivey Abitz collection embraces designs, hues, and fabrics that are essential to living everyday life with a truly workable wardrobe – a wardrobe whose loyal beauty and relevance stays true throughout the years, according to the designer.
In her artist statement for the collection, Cynthia Ivey Abitz says, "The mood is joyful loyalty, and it is one that I feel daily with my own dogs and cats. Their loyalty inspires me to create garments that are always there no matter the occasion, season, or mood."
Ivey Abitz makes each garment as it is ordered by a customer at http://IveyAbitz.com - just for that customer.
The designer says quality is a major part of the garments. They are designed and constructed to be relevant decades into the future. Clients view purchasing Ivey Abitz garments as an investment they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.
"Our beloved seamstresses know my designs inside and out, and they take pride in completing the details that make Ivey Abitz clothing so special, "says Cynthia.
Ivey Abitz specializes in bespoke women's clothing that has an antique feel with a modern appeal. Garments are produced on order and can be customized on the designer's website, http://IveyAbitz.com.
