What began as an inspiration to design a few jackets for a fundraising fashion show has now become a fulltime creative endeavor to address the unanswered niche in outerwear by leveraging technology and innovation.
“In designing this brand, I wanted to reach women like me, who rarely have enough time in any single day. So, looking at transition points, I thought about how my outerwear could arm me to be more efficient, pulled-together, elegant – and then I began to sketch. The result is what I call high yield, scalable fashion,” saysWRAPHABILLEMENT Creative Director Elizabeth Roberts.
WRAPHABILLEMENT was launched in October 2011 and is the official outerwear designer for the Royal Danish Ballet. Through unique design, the highest quality fabrics, and its patented SmartShield Pocket Technology, WRAPHABILLEMENT offers a selection of jackets that are both chic and functional.
