About this project
CARRIE HAMMER History
Carrie Hammer started her career as an advertising sales executive and often heard that she should "dress for the job she wanted not the job she had." This was tough advice to follow as she found a limited selection of fashionable professional women's clothing, with a contemporary fit, at a reasonable price point. Hammer found that her friends and colleagues experienced the same frustration so she decided to create a line to cater to these women.
For the past year CARRIE HAMMER has been creating stylish, bespoke dresses for professional women. There has been an overwhelming response to the styles and the amazing fit that bespoke tailoring offers. Our customers have loved the style and aesthetic and have been begging us for separates that they can grab on the go and dress down for after work and on the weekends. The bespoke pieces have garnered lots of excitement and media attention from some big media outlets and have bean featured and mentioned in the likes of Fox Business News, Wall Street Journal, Manhattan Magazine, etc.

Risks and challenges
Michael Kors wasn't kidding when he said "Fashion isn't for sissies." Fashion is a very difficult industry with many barriers to entry which may be part of the reason why professional women's wear has been neglected for so long. There are many difficulties in sourcing, manufacturing, shipping, duties, customs, and many other steps of the process. These are arenas that we have successfully navigated over the past year and we are ready to use our knowledge to launch a ready to wear line understanding of the risks involved.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
