✨Member Monday Highlight ✨ Clare Hare Darien Resortwear
Resortwear a(nd Golfwear) with Flair
I have worked in consulting at McKinsey & Co., and at Goldman, Sachs in my previous career. I still do freelance consulting primarily with nonprofits and also am engaged in wealth management.
Had originally had an idea to do maternity wear after the birth of my first child and then put aside until I was approached by a woman who thought we could design and market a best-selling wrap skirt. This then evolved into women’s golfwear (including skorts, SPF shirts, tunics and dresses) targeted to private country clubs and high-end boutiques. I also have a website and sell through ecommerce and trunk shows.
I am unique in that I focus on using all cotton sustainable fabrics, and only do production in the USA. I target women who are interested in longer hem-lengths and imported stylish fabrics. Also, I care about the people who manufacture my clothing who are all paid high wages and are part of a factory that has been approved by the Department of Labor. This is highly atypical in the garment industry.
