About this project
In a world of fast fashion, slow fashion is our angle. Pause represents the idea of living in the moment and the patience for finding the right fashion pieces that you will be proud of.
We designed 7 shirts all in white and added our take on fashion to each silhouette. We follow a seasonless calendar allowing us to obsess over every detail. Our shirts are made and designed in New York City and inspired by a modern, minimalist, style of dressing.
We are THE fashion shirt company.
FASHION SHIRTING REDEFINED AND AT A FAIR PRICE
Dress codes have loosened, more women are seeking a more versatile wardrobe, and technology has made it easier to have a flexible work lifestyle. We're aiming to provide fashion forward pieces that meet the needs of the modern woman - pieces that can be dressed up for the office and dressed down for a cocktail event. Our styles also won't break the bank. Each piece retails from $140 to $250 and through our Kickstarter, is offered at a 30% discount!
MADE IN NEW YORK CITY
We work closely with our manufacturer and keep our manufacturing resources local, ensuring fair wages are paid and good working conditions are met. Long term, we plan to grow and create more jobs in New York City's garment manufacturing sector.
MADE FROM 100% COTTON AND TESTED FOR HARMFUL SUBSTANCES
Our fabric mill tests for harmful substances under high standards using a globally recognized system, OEKO-TEX. This means our textiles are produced in environmentally friendly facilities.
WHO WE ARE
We are Sezin and Hoa, a designer/buyer duo who met while working together at Calvin Klein in New York. With our combined 17 years of experience in the fashion industry, we decided to create our own women's fashion brand on our own terms and around the elements most important to us. We also draw a lot of inspiration from the things that interest us most - from fashion to art, culture, travel, and photography. These things combined led us to create Pause.

Risks and challenges
We're a small brand facing cost challenges - but we're committed.
Our goal isn't to create just another fashion business. We're passionate about creating a specialized, unique apparel company and minimizing our carbon footprint while doing it. We have years of experience in the industry and want to use that to build a brand that is ethical, made in New York City, quality made, fashionable and accessible. Keeping our resources local allows us to be very hands on and work extremely close with our manufacturer during the entire process - it takes a lot of hard work but we wouldn't have it any other way.
We want to be transparent and educate you on who made our products and where. We want you to feel the same empowerment and encourage others to seek the same information when shopping.
Manufacturing also comes with a risk of unexpected delays. Because of our close relationship with our factory, we will be in close contact with them on any potential issues and can work quickly to resolve them. You will be the first to know of any delays and we'll also make frequent updates!
In order to make this happen, we need you to join our journey. We are looking for support from those who believe in our story and brand. Please order our products and share our story.
We're excited to do this together!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
