Poppy & Bloom is a story of fashion kismet. As soon as Lindsey Tabor, founder of Trade Chic, a plus size boutique near Seattle, met Svetlana Petculescu, founder of e-commerce plus-size boutique Pionna.com, the mission to bring some serious quality and panache to the plus-size market was officially on. Brought together by the challenges of finding chic, plus-size styles to carry in their shops, the ladies decided that if they wanted curvy clothing done right, they’d have to do it themselves. They vowed to create clothing that would make getting dressed fun again.
The fashion fates then introduced Lindsey and Svetlana to Olga Szwed, a fashion designer who had already built a cult following in Seattle for her fabulous couture gowns. Olga was looking to expand her business, and when she got wind of Lindsey’s and Svetlana’s plans, she knew she had to become the ampersand in Poppy & Bloom. With their 20 years of combined experience in fashion design, retail and e-commerce, the ladies knew they’d be unstoppable.
Here is the break-down of where your money will go:
- Production – $15,000 Manufacturing, grading, and fabrics. Manufacturing will be done in US to ensure best quality and support American manufacturing to keep jobs in the US
- Marketing, PR, Models, Photo-shoots – $2,500
- Participation in the Full Figured Fashion Week Show – $2,500 Showcasing our collection at FFFWeek will give us the exposure to our target customers and buyers.
All women deserve clothing that they are excited to wear. Each dress in our collection has been designed to express the individual personality and confidence of the woman wearing it.
We chose to design dresses for curvy women in sizes 12-24W because we felt that there was a void in the plus size market that needed to be filled with high-quality, classic designs in fabrics that were contemporary, ageless, and resilient. We have chosen colorful patterns that allow you to translate the style through accessories in your own personal fashion.
Our Spring/Summer collection consists of seven different dress styles, each with 2-3 fabrics, patterns and colors to choose from. Find the dress that speaks to you, express yourself!
- Our dresses are all made of high-quality fabrics. We use Cotton and Spandex mixes that breathe easily. We have given each of our fabric wash machine tests and only chose fabrics that did not wear, tear or pill.
- Adjustable, stretchy waistband and an A-line skirt have been designed specifically to skim, trim, and flatter the figure.
- High quality zippers, colorful lace hem-detailing and contrast lining give the dress a high-end, unique finish.
- Lastly, We design, manufacture, and distribute our products right here in Seattle! We support local artisans who create quality products.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As with all clothing lines, there are several components sourced locally outside the Poppy & Bloom team. For example, our manufacturing specialists and fabric suppliers, which work in small teams right here in Seattle, may, at times, have an unpredictable work load, which could make the turn around time on manufacturing longer than expected. The Poppy & Bloom team has realistic expectations for product manufacturing, lead times and outcome of the product. If producing a quality product takes a little longer than expected, we plan on taking the time to perfect it instead of rushing the process.
