It's no surprise we have a thing for supporting female makers and entrepreneurs at the shop, but our local ladies are near and dear to our hearts, too! When an opportunity to blend our love of lifestyle inspiration, home design, and seasonal, high-end fashion came about with the ever-stylish Michelle Taylor of Birdie James Boutique, we took the bouquet by the stems and dove right in!
The collaboration was inspired by the luxurious textures and colors of autumn, the effortless natural magic of the Lowcountry, and transitional silhouettes and palettes that blend the fleeting season of fall into the nostalgia of the holidays. Michelle curated the looks based on the latest trends and classic styles the Birdie James client craves; and of course, we gathered the unique and striking botanicals and natural materials that our Branches friends love. We styled the front window "ladies" at Birdie James with the blend of our favorite looks.
But wait! There was MORE! We couldn't resist bringing these designs to life - so we enlisted a couple of beautiful friends of both Branches and Birdie James, Jennifer Gleistman and Adrienne LeBlanc, to style the looks. We then brought in our go-to gal for photos, Celia Carroll of Harbour Affair, and we let the magic begin!
Thank you to our local, beautiful vendors and friends for letting us flex our creative vibes and bringing our creations to life! Stay tuned for more collabs down the road... because now we're hooked!
