Women's clothing for you and me.
Lu. began long before Lu. actually began.
Jenny's career mandated a lot of traveling and she started developing ideas for clothing that could be easily packed, unpacked and ready to wear without looking like a frumpy overly practical tourist.
No one wants to spend hours getting dressed after hours of traveling, and no one wants to look like they just rolled out of bed when they're meeting with the next big client for cocktails downtown.
Lu. is fashion with the traveller in mind and Lu. is fashion for the fashion conscious. You don't have to be a jet-setter but you can sure look like one.
1. creating clothing that inspires confidence and happiness.
2. keeping innovation at the forefront.
3. ensuring top notch quality at every step.
4. staying true to artistic vision, intent and integrity.
This sassy little number was the same shirt Jackie Kennedy wore at Camp David. Ok no, because if it was there is no way we would need Kickstarter right? But, we feel pretty confident that she would have looked amazing wearing one! Made with a Ponte Knit it features a Curved hem and 3/4 sleeve. We have tried this shirt on various sized women and while ultimately fit is going to be to taste, we have put a guide together below to show you how we felt it looked best.
Our fabulous maxi! A woman on the move needs this dress to go the distance with her. Dress it up, or dress it down, it is easy to pack and easy to wear. Dress #6 is made from a Ponte Knit, which is perfect fabric for the maxi-dress. The stretch double knit feels substantial while allowing movement. Our sizing chart below includes measurements from shoulder to hem.
Can't touch this! Bottom #1 is comfort and fashion in perfect harmony. The drop crotch has come a long way from MC Hammer, with an architectural form and side pockets. Both fabric options are super soft, drapey and easy to wear. The wool gives the structure while the lycra helps with moveability. Bottom #1 is offered in two color choices: CinnamonToast and BlackSheep. Check out our sizing chart to help you decide what is right for you.
The Lu. Tote!
Made of a brilliant 5mm thick charcoal felt this is a tote that was designed to get down and dirty but look like a million bucks the whole time. Look stylish while making a quick run to the corner store or while shopping downtown, this tote is meant to handle the toughest tasks without losing its sense of style. It comes with a cream Lu. logo print emblazoned across the front.
This project is a personal passion of Jenny's that has swept us all into motion to develop her vision of high end fashionable and travel friendly womens wear.
Sewing free-form in every spare moment away from her office to create innovative clothing for her own wardrobe has progressed to creating this line for you largely due to all the positive feedback and initial demand for her one-offs.
Jenny has a desire to keep the whole fabrication process local so she can maintain her hands-on approach and ensure quality at every level of production. There are a number of extremely talented people and companies here in the pacific northwest and we are excited about moving forward with them knowing the garments will be of such high quality and locally produced.
After working with different pattern makers and a lot of consultation with other professionals in the industry, we've found a very select crew who have been working on designer and name brand fashion garments for more years than you can shake a stick at. We are very excited about the team and the extremely high level of quality we are going to be able to put into each garment.
Where Your Money Is Going
We've spent over $5,000 of our own money in product development to get Lu. to this point.
However, there are minimum order quantities that must be placed when sourcing both fabric and components and we need help hitting those marks.
Our fundraising goal was set to allow for production and manufacturing of the entire line and will allow Lu. to move forward making great products for our customers. Additional money will go towards extending the line.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I've done my best to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project.
My goal is to have very nice fabrics, nicely sewn pieces that you will wear over and over for years. One of my challenges has been getting fabric. With talking with as many people as possible, I found 3 local sources and I'm using 2 for this project and have received some beautiful fabric from them both.
I have been wearing most of my designs for the past year or so and can proudly state that the response has been outstanding.
Having chosen my manufacturer from her years of experience, reputation in town and seeing her work, I can vouch for their quality and reliability. I've got a production schedule and am confident in my suppliers and vendors for both the inputs and manufacturing.
That said, there are inherent risks of delay in the process. I will communicate with both my backers and my manufacturer throughout the campaign to ensure the fulfillment timeline stays true.
