About this project

The Velo by Sophia Tyris™

FUNCTIONAL FASHION!

With this patented design, the loops on the sides and corners of the Velo and the accompanying belt work together to transform the Velo into 30 different ways.  The Sophia Tyris Loop Technology offers variety and completely transforms your wardrobe without breaking the bank! The Velo is approximately 52 inches wide and 36 inches long.  It can be longer, wider or shorter depending on what you need or like.  The photos show the Velo that is 52 inches wide and 36 inches long that can be transformed into scarves to wear with your dresses,skirts or pants; shirts to wear with your pants or skirts; skirts to wear with your blouses and blazers; and a dress to wear at the office or to transform into an evening outfit for a night on the town, evening event or a dinner date!  

It is my mission to create affordable fashion for the office and that is why I designed the Velo with the professional woman in mind. As a third year law student, I couldn't afford to buy many outfits to wear tot he office for my legal internships. I also had in mind the corporate woman, who travels often for business trips. Just this one item creates a plethora of outfits and fits easily in to your suitcase or even purse. On a business trip you can start your morning off wearing the velo as a scarf with a suit that you own and later in the ending when you attend dinner with your colleagues you can transform it into a knee length skirt, a long skirt or even a dress and wear your blazer or cardigan on top with some beautiful jewelry and all these outfits that would have taken up so much room in your suitcase could even fit in your purse! You are able to look beautiful while on the go and wear what you feel like wearing. You know this dress is supposed to work for you and make it a little easier for the corporate professional woman that is busy but still wants to look good while on the run, and even just having the scarf as an accessory on your purse or briefcase, its there for you and willing and able to transform your look for an unexpected lunch, meeting a client, having a drink or getting dinner.

Use the belt to create a unique scarf look. It is no longer necessary for the scarf to knot because that takes away precious fabric! The belt will tie the scarf together leaving the full length of the Velo to make you look and feel beautiful!

Take a different belt and transform the Velo into a long beautiful skirt. As you can see, I had a dress on and simply put the Velo on top, completely transforming my look! It is so easy to go from one outfit consisting of a dress and the Velo used as a scarf, to a totally different outfit with the same dress and the Velo used as a long beautiful skirt!

Your Contribution

With the help of Kickstarter and people like you, I will be able to start producing the Velo in the USA. The Velo is an exclusive piece and the first of an entire line that will focus on Corporate Professional Fashion for Women and Men offering function and flexibility in each piece, including office attire and accessories that can be used in more than one way. Your support means I can turn the Velo into a reality, start selling on my website, and ship around the country and eventually open up my own boutique.

The Rewards

I personally guarantee all rewards will be promptly delivered to my supporters!  It is my mission to make the Velo a reality and give credit to all the people who have helped me with the wonderful rewards I am offering.  I have some amazing rewards that can all be used for work for men and woman. In addition to the Velo, I am offering men's ties, woman's ponytail scarves.  Also, woman's office scarves and infinity scarves with Sophia Tyris Loop technology. The women's office scarves are square scarves that can be added to any outfit you already own! The Velo can not only transform into a scarf but also be worn as a skirt, dress, shirt and scarf! I hope you'll give me the opportunity to return the generosity to you. I can't do this without you, so if you appreciate fashion geared for the corporate professional without spending your paychecks, please help me by sharing and spreading the word to all your colleagues.

Just by adding a blazer you create two looks: The outfit for the office or an important client meeting AND the outfit for dinner with that special someone in your life!
