The Copley Skirt – Velvet



The Copley Skirt

The arched doorways and grey stone of neo-Gothic Copley Hall, a cornerstone building on the Georgetown campus, emulate the iconic Healy Hall. The classic appeal of this collegiate building inspired our design for the enduring style of the Copley skirt.

The Copley skirt is the counterpart to the Healy skirt, each one meticulously tailored for different body types.  A classic pencil skirt, the Copley features a defined waistband that fits at the natural waist, accentuating the feminine form. It is designed for an hour-glass figure, with room at the hips, then curving gently to the knee. Everlasting in design, the Copley skirt is an essential foundation piece for every woman’s wardrobe.

Ann: It’s so hard to tell from the photo, but the velvet fabric is luscious – the secret is the silk.

Julie:  And do you know how hard it is to find the perfect velvet skirt out there? Close to impossible! Starting right now straight through the winter solstice, holidays and the dark months of winter, this velvet Copley will be the answer–  to wear with your silk  top for a holiday party  and with your cashmere turtleneck for a cozy dinner for two.  And you can even throw on a classic white shirt and blazer with your velvet pencil skirt and go from day to dinner downtown.  Every woman needs one.
