About

When it comes to looking good, it’s the fit of your clothes that matters. Wearing the right clothes is all about choosing what actually suits you and dressing to flatter your body shape. 

We at Ella Hopfeldt aim to create tailored dress shirts that make women’s bodies look good. We have devised four distinct shirt fits based on different body types, ensuring that you look sleek and smart – a fitted shirt is always more flattering than the alternative.

Now we need your help to expand our collection and to crowd-source the next production run.

Through experimentation and trial-and-error we have developed a set of beliefs about how the world’s best women’s dress shirts should look and feel. Every shirt we make is based on these beliefs:

– Fit matters. Ella Hopfeldt shirt fits are carefully considered, tailored and perfect for different body types. 

– Fabrics matter. When choosing our shirt fabrics, we always keep the quote of fashion designer Nino Cerruti in mind: “Only an excellent fabric can originate an excellent fashion”. All Ella Hopfeldt shirts are made of premium 100% cotton fabrics that are Bluesign® and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 approved. 

– Details matter. The shirt quality is in the details, the collar and cuffs. These details frame your face and hands, enhancing both the garment and the wearer. 

– Sustainability and principles of slow fashion matter. We are focused on creating shirts that have been made to last, both because we use high quality raw materials and timeless designs that transcend fashion trends.

Looking for an impeccable women's dress shirt that looks superb and fits great? Look no further, Ella Hopfeldt has got you covered!

With Ella Hopfeldt shirts you get the following benefits: 

Our tailored, fitted shirts come in 4 fits for different body types. Find the fit that is perfect for you and look impeccable – a fitted shirt is always more flattering than the alternative. 

Designed and produced in Europe, Ella Hopfeldt shirts are made with superior craftsmanship and attention to detail that elevates the shirts to a whole new level of comfort and style. 

Details like collar and cuffs distinguish a high quality dress shirt. All Ella Hopfeldt shirts have reinforced collars and cuffs that makes these details firmer and crisper looking even when your day extends into night. 

We work together with one of the world's leading manufacturers of shirt fabrics from Austria. All Ella Hopfeldt shirts are made of premium 100% cotton that lends the shirts an enjoyable and comfortable feel. 

Ella Hopfeldt makes shirts only and exclusively for women. We are focused on providing the same choice and quality of shirts for women as is being provided by world's best shirtmakers for men. 

Look good and feel great in an Ella Hopfeldt dress shirt! 

 

 

 

 

    

OUR PROJECT

Ella Hopfeldt is a small fashion brand and our niche is luxury dress shirts for women. We depend on Kickstarter, our retailers and customers for our ability to keep expanding our shirt collection. With the support of Kickstarter community we will be able to start producing 4 distinguished fits of shirts instead of the current 3 for women of different body types. 

Thank you in advance for supporting our campaign. Our existing clients have found Ella Hopfeldt shirts amazing and we feel positive that so will you.

 

BACKER REWARDS

When the campaign is over, we'll send out a survey to you where you'll choose your shirt fit, size and color. 

All shirts are available in 4 different fits for different bodytypes. 

Luxurious Double Cuff Shirts come in 4 classic colors: White, Pink, Light Blue and Black. The double cuff is twice as long as regular cuff and the material is folded back on itself (hence the Double) and closed with cufflinks. 

Universal cuff shirts come in 3 designs: White with black details, navy blue with pink details and a pink striped shirt with solid pink details. Universal cuffs include both button fastenings and cufflink holes to insert cufflinks, allowing for a seamless transition from day-to-night or from office-to-occasion in the blink of an eye. 

 

 

 

OUR SIZE GUIDE

When it comes to dress shirts, a fitted shirt is always more flattering than the alternative. Feeling good comes from looking good and the perfect fit of your shirt plays a crucial role in this. Most women we know can be described by body types and so we’ve devised four distinct fits based on the different types. Regardless of the fit, however, all Ella Hopfeldt shirts are tailored and of a sufficient length to be either tucked in or worn untucked.

Get to know your fit and you’ll find a great looking shirt that you can turn to for almost any occasion.

The four carefully designed women's dress shirt fits are the following: 

  • Italian fit and German fit which are perfect for average height and taller women (166–183 cm/ 5'5''–6'0''),  and 
  • French fit and Spanish fit which are perfect for average height and shorter women (155–166 cm/ 5'1''–5'5'')

To find your perfect fit and size, please see the information below. 

ABOUT US

Ella Hopfeldt brand was started by two women, Marion and Merit, both of whom love to wear dress shirts. What started as a personal need for classic, high quality, tailored shirts quickly grew into a strong desire to provide premium products to women all over the world.

The brand name is a tribute to our grandmothers, one of whom was named Ella and the other had a last name Hopfeldt. 

 

Risks and challenges

Completing a project like ours involves careful planning, accurate budgeting and flawless coordination with the fabric producer and our manufacturing partner. Fortunately, we have been in the business of women's shirts long enough and our processes as well as our shirts have been tried and tested.

We are prepared to make our project go smoothly and will do everything in our power to keep you satisfied every step of the way.

Thank you for your support!
