Can we say that Erica started Garnish at the age of 6?
OK, maybe not the business exactly, but at that young age she entered her first designs - a splatter painted top and skirt - into the Vermont State Fair. By high school, she was sewing and selling polar fleece hats to her fellow ski racers. It's no surprise that after more design work in college and upon joining the workforce, Erica launched her own clothing line in 2004.
Garnish's evolution since then has been well-thought out, and responsive to what our customers want. #garnishgals love being the ones to turn heads. It's easy to stand out when you're wearing something distinctive made in very limited quantities. Our modern pieces can become your entire wardrobe - from tops and skirts that are MORE than everyday, to dresses and coats that nudge fashion boundaries and are perfect for your next event. It goes without saying that you'll be comfortable in our great-fitting garments. We just ask that if you're in our shop, be flexible if we suggest a piece or two that might make you say "That is quite different from what I normally wear." We know, and that is what we are here for: to help you evolve your style, and we are quite confident that you will fall in love with the results.
Bold pieces. Jewelry to go with. Accessories to complete the look. Made in small batches in our beloved Portland.
We're Designer-Maker-Stylists. And at Garnish, we help you be the woman you want to be!
