“EMBRACE experimentation; PLAY with fashion.”
These are words that every fashionista lives by. What’s really cool though is that there is a girls’ fashion line that teaches this!
Fiveloaves Twofish is a San Diego based fashion company that creates the most amazing (not to mention coveted) girls clothes around. How amazing are they? You can purchase their clothes at a little store called Nordstroms. Perhaps you’ve heard of it?
Fiveloaves Twofish is a fashion-driven lifestyle brand for girls, tweens and young contemporaries. Each collection is an all encompassing look, attitude and way of life allowing girls to explore fashion as they are caught between “little girlhood” and “juniors”.
Their Fall 2014 collection definitely embodies these principles of Fiveloaves Twofish. Titled “Fall Into Parisian Style”, their dresses have a grown up flair but are still very much age-appropriate. Beautifully full skirts have girls twirling in the streets. They just can’t help themselves! And the prints…let’s just say that they make you wish that you were a little girl again just so you could wear them! (Although they do have sizes up to girls 16!)
One of the really great things about Fiveloaves Twofish though is their business ethics. They encourage clients to know what they buy and to read labels. They encourage clients to buy from companies that treat workers, animals and the environment with respect and that’s exactly how they operate themselves.
All of their processes are done right here in sunny San Diego-from designing, patterns, samples to manufacturing. They pride themselves on their work to help sustain the economy of San Diego. They even source 50% of their materials locally!
