Last week marked the debut of a new online shopping haven offering fashion finds and art. The founders, Alicia R. and Aurelia M., share a background in design and a love of fashion and other artistic mediums. “The concept behind Founders & Followers is that finally there will be a space that intimately interconnects the designer’s world with the consumer”, said Alicia R., co-founder. “We are seeking to offer a different shopping experience—not only will ‘Founders & Followers’ feel like opening a beautiful fashion magazine or entering a concept store, it will also have enough rotation of material non-related to the shop including atelier and exclusive illustration prints.”
In addition to shopping indie designer wares from the likes of Bodkin, Gar-De, Surface to Air, Shipley + Halmos, and Risto, shoppers will also have access to established and renowned fashion illustrators including Sophie Toulouse, Stephane Manel, Marie Molterer, and Esra Roise.
I had early access to the site and found many tempting pieces. It’s been bookmarked for future editorial reference and wardrobe additions. It’s a one-stop shop for art and fashion, two of my favorite things. FoundersandFollowers.com
