Fabric Status Page Tracks Sold Out and Nearly Sold Out Weaves

Original Plaster Embroidered Washed Silk - Description: The Spring 2018 piece de resistance, alongside the Lawn Washed Pintuck Silk. A mix of refreshing and calming hues, all in one weave. The variegated striped silk background makes an incredibly unique background for the intricately embroidered floral and vine motif. The vine design cascades across the body, creating a flattering detail within your flattering IA frock.

Introducing the new Fabric Status page at IveyAbitz.com.

We receive many inquiries asking about which fabrics are nearly sold out in the current bespoke collection. Now you can save time and get the answers directly from the Fabric Status page.

Sold Out fabrics are listed at the top, and Nearly Sold Out fabrics are listed next. Keep in mind that sometimes fabrics will sell out before we have a chance to add them to this list. The moral of that story is to order early for best fabric selection.

We will be updating the fabric status page manually as we monitor our fabric stock, so use it as a guide but not a guarantee of availability.

Sometimes we are able to get more of a particular fabric after it is sold out, but this is a rare occasion. It may involve a wait while the fabric is made at the mill, which can take weeks or even months. In this case, we suggest discovering a new fabric to obsess over. Remember, the next collection is always around the corner. And one thing you can depend on is the continuation of the Ivey Abitz aesthetic from season to season.

As always, contact us if you have questions about fabrics. Even with website technology at our disposal, there is no substitute for personal interaction.

New Ivey Abitz Website

New IveyAbitz.com
Ivey Abitz redesigned its website to coincide with the launch of the 2017 Spring collection

Ivey Abitz has launched a new website to showcase and sell bespoke clothing designs and accessories.

The new IveyAbitz.com is designed for responsiveness across multiple devices. Now visitors can view look books and shop on a smartphone as well as a desktop computer.

The website launch coincides with the debut of the Spring 2017 Collection. The collection includes over 140 designs and 52 fabrics. Clients select fabric from the spring palette for each design they order. Ivey Abitz then creates the design as ordered.

The new website enhances the bespoke aspect of the Ivey Abitz experience by adding several shopping features previously unavailable to Ivey Abitz customers.

One new feature is called “Shop by Look.” Clients can purchase directly from ensembles featured in the look book. They can order all of the designs featured in an ensemble, or just one. They can even select alternative fabrics. This method is indicative of the bespoke nature of the Ivey Abitz experience.

Another new feature is called “Shop by Fabric.” Clients view the current season’s fabric chart, select a fabric they like, and see a list of designs available in that fabric. This feature is also available on design category pages, where customers can choose to “Filter by Fabric.”

Shop Ivey Abitz by Fabric
Now you can shop Ivey Abitz by selecting a fabric and choosing from a list of designs offered in it.

Ivey Abitz started selling bespoke designs in 2006. It is a small company run only by the designer, Cynthia Ivey Abitz, and her husband, Josh Ivey Abitz. Over the years Ivey Abitz has resisted the temptation of selling wholesale to stores and has sold exclusively through their own website, IveyAbitz.com. The couple prefer to have a relationship with the people who wear the clothing. The newly designed website represents the company’s commitment to creating beautiful garments well into the future.
