Being beautiful is tough

We're always under the pressure of looking good. We live in a fast paced world where we are expected to get things done quickly. You already have enough to worry about - and all it takes is just one spill to ruin your day.

We need clothes that adapts to our needs and empowers the lady of the 21st century. Our idea of creating a garment that elevates the feminine figure, that is also comfortable and functional enough to enjoy life, is now a reality. Welcome to Eros & Psyche's premiere collection, a skirt line thoughtfully designed and constructed for the modern women.

Made with Smart Textiles

Our concept brings together an unlikely couple: science & fashion. But you know what they say - opposites attract. Eros & Psyche introduces designer skirts with a waterproof & stain-resistant nanotechnology, bringing your wardrobe the future of fashion - with smart textiles. Our smart textiles cause water to bead up and roll right off while fending off most stain-causing pigments.

Never choose between Stylish and Functional anymore

We're here to change the status quo - because we believe the modern urban woman shouldn't ever have to choose between the two.

Our features include:

  • Pleats that flatter all body types & naturally accentuate your curves.
  • Made with fabric that is soft to the touch but durable enough to withstand harsh environments.
  • An invisible zipper that is neatly hidden beneath the fabric.
  • Deep pockets with an interior angle to eliminate the awkward "phone bump."
  • Waterproof and stain-resistant technology prevents germs from sticking, making it antibacterial.
    Designs

We custom make our designs the traditional way - with a paintbrush and easel. 

Each mesmerizing design is skillfully sketched and painted to perfection using fine oil paints. Every color is carefully selected to match various skin tones, wardrobes and color schemes. Our designer, Debbie Yang, brings with her both a classical fine arts and modern fashion background, giving her the experience to make a masterpiece of style - your masterpiece.

Made in New York City

We made a conscious choice to keep our production here at home. We work with family-run small businesses which include seamstresses, pattern makers and trim suppliers. By keeping our production local, we can be hands on with the making of your skirt and ensure you receive a quality product. 

Now it's your turn to choose

Risks and challenges

We at Eros & Psyche are working around the clock to deliver you the perfect product - because you deserve nothing less. However, we are still human and with that comes human mistakes. But for every obstacle that gets in our way, we'll learn from that experience and use it only to serve you better.

We have back up plans in place for potential points of hold up. For fabric production, we have multiple mills in line ready to go. Several nanoparticle treatments have been carefully selected to make sure they meet our quality standards. Our New York-based sewing house has the manpower to hand make your skirts and will hire more busy birds if needed. In short, scalability could be a challenge if our skirt line catches fire (hopefully not literally!), but with your help we're prepared to handle anything that comes our way.
