"Samantha Pleet was founded in 2007 in Brooklyn NY after graduating from Pratt Institute. It is now an independent fashion brand that is a collaboration between Samantha and partner Patrick who is trained in Architecture. The brand was founded to offer whimsical yet meticulously designed style to smart and magical women. We are so pleased to still be operating as a small business and still be able to create our dream clothes just for you each season!
Samantha makes the patterns and designs each collections out of her solar powered townhouse in Brooklyn. The garments are produced at a women owned factory in NYC as well as Fair trade factories in India and China depending on where our natural materials were sourced. Our new line of shoes are produced at a small fair trade women owned factory in China and the leathers were sustainably sourced in Italy. Our pieces are meant to be treasured by you and handed down with love to friends and family in the years to come." Shop Samantha Pleet.
"Plante is a clothing line designed and produced in NYC. Now in it's fourth year, this brand has long existed in the imaginations of founders (and sisters) Leah and Becky Plante. Rooted in their hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, Plante aims to create garments that are unabashedly pretty, with unexpected details and impeccable construction.
Plante draws on nature’s wildness, glamour, and beauty—blankets of kudzu flanking the highway, courtyard gardens redolent of tea olive, ancient oak trees draped in moss. Each of our collections explores one specific natural element that inspires us.
As nature enthusiasts, we are also committed to eco friendly practices. All of our garments are made locally, in New York City. We reduce waste by abstaining from over cuts, and donating our extra material to educational nonprofits."
