OUR STORY



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 totally 80s 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 studying design in college and gaining business experience in the workforce, Erica launched her own clothing line in 2004.

From start to finish, Garnish is Portland fashion.
Every step of the Garnish clothing production process is completed right here in Portland. It often starts with fabric that connects Erica to a special memory, travel destination or even favorite client. She takes meticulous care to create a figure flattering sample which is then hand delivered to one of her local seamstresses or produced in her home studio. Roughly a dozen of each style in a colorway is made, ready to turn heads as your next wardrobe favorite. All Garnish jewelry and accessories are handcrafted by Erica and her staff in her home studio, becoming the perfect complement to the beautiful limited edition apparel.
