My Cup Runneth Over

Lori Wearing her Ivey Abitz Bespoke Clothing

We often receive photographs of our clients wearing the bespoke garments we make for them. This year we have resolved to share more of them with you.

This is Lori looking positively stunning in her bespoke Blanchefleur Frock, Baudelaire Duster Coat, and a Blanchefleur Sash wrapped around her head.

We asked Lori if we could share the note she sent along with the photograph. Here’s what she wrote:

OMG!!!

my cup runneth over with happiness.

Alliances were discussed as the world sought unity. Eleanor’s humble idyll and gracious hospitality helped bring about that world peace.

We celebrate Eleanor’s work and words about unity and peace in our new collection, shown above in our new client favourites, the Scattergood designs, featured in our new Unity palette and weaves.

The designs’ intentions — to scatter good wherever you go — tip a hat to the historic meetings that took place at Eleanor’s cottage where world leaders determined how to scatter good worldwide.

What we choose to wear each day is a declaration. What will your declaration be?

Find your voice in the new Ivey Abitz Look Book. Your declaration, in the form of bespoke garments, will be made just for you in New York and shipped in a few short weeks.

Eleanor Roosevelt’s Unity Quote

“If unity is important for a nation, we must realize that it cannot really exist unless we can bring about unity between the groups which make up that nation.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

Mask Project

When we read the first news article about nurses and doctors in the NYC area in short supply of masks, we reached out to our clients in the healthcare profession to see if we could help in some way. They confirmed that the need was great.

Ivey Abitz is donating many yards of our finest and sturdiest natural fiber fabrics to create masks that can be washed and sanitized again and again.

Our dear tailors have each made dozens of masks for the initial surge in our area, and we will donate more as needed.

More masks are being sent out this week, and we will continue to donate masks to healthcare professionals as they need them.
