Highlighting Some of our Favorite American Designers

In honor of the upcoming holiday, (aka 4th of July), I’m highlighting three of my favorite “Made In America” designers!

Claudia Endler Designs

Love modern design? Love jewelry? Claudia Endler Designs (CED) marries design and jewelry into stunning wearable art. This gorgeous fine jewelry with a sophisticated and eclectic flair is ideal for discriminating Fashionistas. I love this designer’s work so much that I own my own fair share and my husband and I sport CED wedding bands.

JAMAH Handbags

The Helen

How do you blend chic, elegant yet effortlessly casual into one? In my world, that’s my fashion mantra and this line is just that. JAMAH has captured the hearts of many. The collections feature cool and sexy unisex designs perfect for the working professional. Aside from being functional and durable, JAMAH handbags are proudly hand-stitched and handmade in the USA. And yes, I own one too many of these handbags but it’s a bit of a rush when someone gushes all over my handbag and ask who it is…”Well, it’s this fabulous client of mine…”

I recently discovered this designer courtesy of another chic client of mine. This prominent and long-standing Fashionista has a flair for the sexy and edgy, and she makes every effort to keep her collection American-made and eco-friendly – mucho likey-like! Her designs are perfect for almost every woman – from slinky dresses to statement-making knit tops. A lot like CED, notice a theme here, her pieces are inspired by modern art & architecture. Some are designed for those with a desire to maintain a “green” lifestyle using Cupro, a fabric material made from recycled materials.

So my dear Fashionistas, for this 4th of July weekend (and beyond), celebrate the success of American-made labels and embrace them with gusto.
