It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we aren’t talking Christmas, ladies. The September issues of all your favorite style magazines are on newsstands, and Fashion Week in New York is upon us. This year, we plant lovers will not be left out of the excitement. Here’s to our very own front row seat at the runway show full of selections from leaders in garden fashion.
GamineWorkwear.com is an apparel company founded by Taylor Johnston and based out of Tiverton, Rhode Island. In true Fashion Week style, the company was launched after iconic fashion photographer Bill Cunningham snapped a photo of Johnston gardening at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Gamine bills itself as “honest work clothing for women.” They have a range of workwear from dungarees and smocks to thermals and “Bill’s Workshirt” in honor of Cunningham. Bonus points for the beautifully diverse women photographed in their threads.
DovetailWorkwear.com is clothing for women by women “fit for the job, capable of anything.” Two of their founders, Kate Day and Kyle Marie Begley,
are landscapers who launched Moxie and Moss garden design. The third founder, Sara DeLuca, was a client of their business who also happened to be an apparel expert. Dovetail has a variety of offerings from “The Britt” utility pant in stretch denim to the “Freshley” overall made for bending, digging, painting or shearing.
What is a Fashion Week garden edition without showing love to international women like GardenGlory.com? Based out of Sweden, their ministry may not be clothing, but a gal needs accessories to complement that posh new plant style. I’ve written about this gem of a company before and bring them back as they continue to change the game. With silver bullet-colored garden gloves and rose shell seating cushions, you will be stylish and comfortable throughout the changing seasons.
