"​There's a lot of cool shit, i mean beautiful ideas that get shot down because society tells us its not acceptable." 

Tell us about your clothing line​​
I have been working on my line of clothing since 2013 and my first products have been manufactured mid 2014. I consider my work to be closest toward designer wear but it definitely has a street influence. I want to change what people see as contemporary garments.There's a lot of cool shit, i mean beautiful ideas that get shot down because society tells us its not acceptable. Without getting too preachy let me tell you what to expect. I grew up in the Bay Area , spending most of my time on the streets just kicking it with friends, things that I see, and emotions that I feel inspire me. 

In what way does your product stand out from the pack
I feel like a lot of companies make filler pieces,no fillers in my brand.. Everything I'm making is something that I genuinely care about, something that I feel was needed in fashion, in Compton or Beverly Hills, the hood or fashion week i want every piece to catch someones eye.

What other plans and initiatives do you have/ what can we expect from you in the future?
Interesting artwork. My work is futuristic, Im an artist but I'm making pieces that are wearable as well. Everything is getting better, I'm super new to this, in 1 year the products are going to get 100 x better stay tuned.

​"Anyone wearing it is guaranteed to the subject of instant attention by everyone who recognizes #TheDress."


We are an online pop up shop here stateside selling the infamous Blue Dress (of recent viral fame). Our website address is http://bluedress.co

The design stands out from the pack because it is suddenly overnight the most-recognized fashion item. Anyone wearing it is guaranteed to the subject of instant attention by everyone who recognizes #TheDress.

The real item is for sale on our website at http://BlueDress.co. The UK manufacturer sells #TheDress in Blue & Black (although the designer has informed us that she is working on a White & Gold variation, which we will also sell) so we offer it in Blue & Black _exclusively_. Which are its true colors anyway.

​"Apparel Centrale is a fun, simple, and easy fashion trade-in. Shop, Sell and Connect with other like-minded women."

​Tell us about your company
Apparel Centrale founder Mimi like most, is an avid online shopper and lover of all things fashion. Like other fashion lovers, she lives to score great deals on fabulous finds from the best brands out there. As a result, she found herself overwhelmed with the many fashion pieces that she had been collecting, but no longer had any use for. The best possible option available was to consign the items at a local consignment shop, create a new treasure for the next fashionista and make some money while at it. Much to her dismay, the payout was diminishing to the value she was sure she had in her closet. So much for collecting trendy and unique fashion pieces! Her disgust slowly turned into anger, and the rage she felt became the motive behind the birth of Apparel Centrale.

Mimi’s aim is to provide women with all the tools for a seamless fashion trade-in experience.
Today, Mimi and the Apparel Centrale team are working tirelessly to bring to fruition an exquisite website where you can all shop and sell your pre-loved clothing, shoes, and accessories all while keeping the heftier chunk of the change.

We urge you to stay tuned to discover what it’s like to shop at a store that truly cares about your needs and the value that is your closet! Thank you!

In what way does your product stand out from the pack? 
As a company we strive to make things that much more exciting, by keeping things trendy and offering our users an easy way to refresh their closet, share their fashion filled story and connect with others.

What other plans and initiatives do you have/ what can we expect from you in the future?
We are currently working on our website which has been a fun initiative for the Apparel Centrale team and we hope to share our vision with the public very soon.

Where can people buy your product/get your service?
We plan to roll out the website soon, but we encourage you to have a look and sign up for news about the exciting upcoming launch here: http://www.apparelcentrale.com/?cs_preview

​After the hippie and boho trends of the ‘60s and the ‘70s, the flowers as accessories haven’t been that big anymore. However, they are coming back and they are coming back big time. On the other hand, you can have too much of a big thing and you don’t want to overdo it. It is important that you know what is enough and to know how to gracefully incorporate flowers into your wardrobe combinations.

Evening Look

This is the style that you can really rock with flowers, but you need to pay attention to the type of the flower that you are wearing. Red rose is an excellent choice if you are opting for a nice, little black dress. There are two ways in which you may come to wear a flower in this way. The first one is to attach it to the dress strap on your shoulder and the other one is to put flowers in your hair. The best hairdo for this is a nice bun that removes the most of your hair from your face with just a couple of slopes for the frame.

Business Look

This is the most difficult look and style for you to incorporate a flower in. However, it is not impossible, if you want it. One of the nice combinations in this way are a nice, dark, formal pants, white silk blouse and a blazer. The flower can easily find its place in this combination on the front of the blazer. With the choice of flower, tone it down a bit. A rose is too much, so choose something simple and discreet in white or pink tones. Gerbera may work just fine. 

Casual Look

This is where you can really do much when it comes to wearing flowers. When it comes to casual look, the flowers will look best in your hair. If you have the courage and you have the occasion, you can choose a nice dress and sandals and make a wreath of field flowers to wear it on your head. If that is too much, a single flower behind your ear is a nice option as well. Flowers add the notion of romance to you overall look, therefore, they seem a bit better with dresses and skirts than with pants and jeans when it comes to causal look.

Beach Look

Wreath of fresh flowers will look absolutely amazing while you wear it on the beach. A nice, big, bright flower in your casual and a bit messy bun will be a head-turner on the beach. The choice of flowers for the beach is limitless. You can make them big, bright and cheerful as much as you can. Ladies swimwear can have floral designs as well. However, if you wear real flowers, perhaps it is best if you avoid them in your hair as well. Another amazing way to rock those flowers on the beach is to use one of those awesome beach hats and put some flowers on them.

Flowers are coming back and they are absolutely gorgeous. Have some style and know when is enough, and you can give that romantic note to almost anything you wear. Have fun making these combinations and enjoy the beauty of natural flowers in your hair.

Tell us about your company
​We mostly make underwear and bra's but are slowly expanding.  Owned and designed by
Rebecca Delgado, who takes great care ensuring Piper Marie's apparel is a truly luxurious and couture product. We use the highest quality fabric for the ultimate comfort and durability. Along with organics we also work with vintage fabrics. Always the perfect fit in all sizes. Although Piper Marie is still mostly handmade, in order to better meet the needs of our customers, for some products we are partnering with a sustainable manufacture in the USA that will construct them with the same love we do.

As a company, we believe that it’s important to be responsible and make a positive impact on our community and the world at large. We do this by trying to reduce our carbon footprint, sourcing the majority of our materials from American companies and working with other companies that support their employees and communities.

To help normalize breastfeeding we have the "I'm the Pacifier" campaign. This is something Rebecca feels very strongly about and she knows that with Piper Marie she can help the fight. Learn more at http://pipermarie.com/imthepaci/

​What are the challenges of being eco-friendly in your field?
Some challenges of using eco-fabrics is how limited the designs can be. There isn't a lot of prints available. Another problem we run into is that the majority of our fabrics can't be made in the USA so we have to import them. 

In what way does your product stand out from the pack?
PM stands out with our designs. We aren't the normal eco-fashion line, we have a sexy sweet feel. 

What other plans and initiatives do you have/ what can we expect from you in the future?
Right now we are running an indiegogo fund to help expand our current line. We are hoping to offer our newest product this spring. 'The Pantie Drawer' where you will get a pair in the mail every month! 

Where can people get your products/service?
Piper Marie is working on getting our new online store open by the end of February but in the mean time you can shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/PiperMarieDesigns
