introducing [esby] apparel, a brand that is well made in the USA of high quality imported fabrics. timeless styles that transcend well day-to-night, season after season.
I am Stephanie Beard, creator of esby, and moved from NYC to Austin over a year ago in order to launch this brand I've always wanted to wear. I designed menswear for many years & noticed the lack of quality, timeless, & well-made apparel in womenswear. This was the driving force behind esby's creation.
I want clothing that is stylish, well-made, and affordable. I want pieces that I can wear year-round, layered up or down, and to feel comfortable while looking good.
I have poured myself & ALL of my savings into research & development of esby's first season. esby will be produced in a small factory in New Orleans. Washes will be added to increase softness, remove shrink, and improve fit. esby will always be made of comfortable, all-natural fabrics.
Now we are ready for production to begin, and need YOUR help.
By backing this project, you will help esby grow into the brand that it can be. By pledging now, you can be the first to own a piece from esby's debut collection.
All styles are available from season one through this campaign & the first production run could sell out! Grab a scarf, shirt, or dress today by pledging on the right side of this page.
If season one does sell out, pre-orders of season two will become available.
All fits are a true-to-size roomy comfortable fit. If you want something to fit closer to your body, you may want to size down.
the bandana comes in two different cotton fabrics & can be worn as a handkerchief or pocket square, as well as a traditional bandana.
the small scarf is hardly small -- still large enough to wrap around several times to keep you warm, or just to add that something special to your outfit.
the large scarf is so comfortable & chic. it also can be used as a park blanket/table cloth/you name it!
the kimono top is a simple V-neck in the front and back with a kimono style sleeve. it falls so nicely & is easy to wear day or night.
the east end tee comes in 2 different garment-dyed colors, as well as crisp white. the all-over dobby gives this flattering cotton "tee" a nice texture & dressed up feel for a woven pocket tee.
the reversible beach house top has the main label sewn at the side seam making this cotton garment-dyed top easy to wear with the scoop OR the V in the front. there is a great all-over texture from the aztec pattern woven into the cotton fabric.
the west lake top is borrowed from the boys with added feminine flare from the gathering at the back yoke. it comes in a bleached cotton chambray as well as the cotton indigo micro stripe. (my favorite piece!)
the fort pond tunic is excellent for year-round wear. the shirt-tail hem is slightly longer in the back, & you'll be so happy it has pockets. this comes in the cotton indigo micro stripe.
the west lake shirt dress is a favorite due to it's versatility from the pockets & it's midi length - making it perfect from day to night. this dress is easily worn with or without the self belt, & comes in the bleached cotton chambray or the over-dyed black chambray.
the navy beach maxi will make you forget how great you look because of how comfortable you feel. with a V in the front and back, and slight gathering at the waist, you may never want to take this cotton ikat print dress off.
Thank you for taking a look at this new brand and please pledge anything you can to help esby grow. In fact, anything you can do will be a huge help! Please share this page on Facebook or Twitter, and send an email to your friends! (See the easy-to-copy-and-paste links just below the video)
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you so much for helping make this long time dream of mine come true!

Risks and challenges
Because I already have all fabric and trims, and are ready for production, timing for rewards is pretty solid. There is always a chance something could come up during production that would cause a delay, and in such a case, you will be notified immediately. Season two timing is a little less concrete than season one, and could be completed much sooner than the anticipated delivery time. You will be updated along the way.
As always, please feel free to email me with any questions.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
