Carlous Palmer Mission Statement: Our mission at Carlous Palmer Design is to create a special brand of clothing that is inspired by art and beauty, created from geometric shapes that when worn by the female figure accentuate the curves of a woman’s body creating a high fashion look that can be successfully worn by a large portion of the market share. Our target demographic is the working woman preferably in a career in the arts between ages 35 to 65 and of a variety of income brackets but always a stable working woman.
Carlous Palmer Design Aesthetic and Principle: The Carlous Palmer design aesthetic is all about making a woman have a fashion style that is not typical of all other women, the Carlous Palmer woman is not searching for herself, she already knows who she is and has a great time being an example to other women on how to step her game up . The Carlous Palmer woman is bold, exciting and fearless. Often the Carlous Palmer woman is a risk-taker and most definitely a trendsetter. The Carlous Palmer woman is truly one of a kind in every sense of the word. The look of most of the clothing is simplistic with edge often the clothing are comprised of well thought out shapes that translate well on the hanger as well as on the body when a wearer of Carlous Palmer can be sure of a few things :
She is wearing something that she will not see many of as there are only limited editions of each garment never exceeding 50pcs of one particular design
The garment that has been chosen will definitely be a conversation starter and compliments are guaranteed
The garments are timeless and transition well into any wardrobe
The wearer although she is purchasing a rare piece she is not paying an exorbitant amount of money on a single garment she is buying quality and should expect to appreciate finery without breaking the bank.
The Carlous Palmer fashion principle is all about creating a bold fashion statement with a simple well-made garment the designs have a few characteristics that are consistent in all Carlous Palmer pieces are created from interesting textured fabrics some hand dyed in house. Use of a great deal of ornamentation is rarely used in any of the collections, the idea is to appreciate the beauty of the natural and mostly ECO Friendly fabrics rarely embellished or printed , however sometimes Tye Dyed, the idea is to let the wearer and the fabric speak. I look forward to seeing you in your first Carlous Palmer design and when you purchase plan on having a garment that you will cherish for years to come.
