How did Bow & Drape get started?
The idea for Bow & Drape came from a personal experience. Founder Aubrie Pagano was shopping for the perfect dress for a wedding that she was attending with her boyfriend. It was the first time that she was meeting his extended family so the pressure was on to look her best. She was struggling to find exactly what she wanted so she made her own dress. It took about a month. She knew there had to be a better destination for women who know what they want and hate to settle for anything less.
What does Bow & Drape do?
Bow & Drape is an American lifestyle brand with a bit of a twist, providing women a fun way to find the perfect wardrobe without spending haute couture prices. With Bow & Drape, women can choose from a curated collection of classic American sportswear and then modify color, fabric, hemlines, sleeves, necklines and other embellishments using Bow & Drape's proprietary technology. Think J. Crew meets Saville Row, creating the 21st century's answer to ready-to-wear.
