Essential, Elegant, Enlightened
To our faithful readers:
We are thrilled to present to you our inaugural designs for the Julia Farr Collection.
When Julia opened her boutique two years ago, she knew that she wanted to design her own line of clothing that embodied her vision of providing essential pieces for her clients, with pieces that support and complement one another, with personal expression and flexibility woven throughout.
Last summer, Ann joined her as a partner in the Julia Farr Collection. We have built the collection around Julia’s vision to provide essential, classic designs, made from elegant, luxurious fabrics for an overall enlightened look for the busy, modern woman.
Since our connection began at Georgetown, we have named our designs after significant places in Washington, DC.
We began with the foundation for every woman’s wardrobe, the essential pencil skirt, named after the foundation building at Georgetown, Healy.
Healy Skirt in 100% wool, $220
shown here with a Tibi blouse and a Kara Ross belt
We know that there are many different body types out there (we are two examples of that – with a six-inch difference in height between the two of us!), so we developed another pencil skirt, with a higher waist and a defined waistband, and named it after our second favorite building at Georgetown, Copley.
Copley Skirt in 100% silk, $220
Prospect Blouse in stretch silk charmeuse, $250
The Copley skirt is paired with the Prospect blouse, named after the street in Georgetown, that leads away from campus and toward downtown.
Julie gave you a sneak peek at our Sheridan dress last Friday. It is named for Sheridan circle, the area near Embassy Row. We feel the Sheridan embodies the continental feel of this part of DC, and would look fabulous in Paris, Prague or Peshawar!
Sheridan Dress, $320
We are in the midst of setting up an online marketplace, so our readers all over the world (hello Laura in Doha, Qatar!) can purchase our designs. In the meantime, if you’re interested in any of the styles you see here, please give Julie a call and she’ll be happy to talk to you!
Our spring collection is a “soft” launch of the line. We are planning an official launch, with a BIG party, in the fall. But, we wanted to share our inaugural spring designs with our blog readers first!
Family is an important part of both of our lives, so we were both so pleased to showcase the Sheridan dress on Mother’s Day(albeit, 1,000 miles apart from each other), accompanied by our darling children (who DID help plant flowers!).
Happy Mother’s Day!
Ann and Julie
