Introducing | Edith A. Miller

Monday, April 16th, 2012

We are very happy to announce the arrival of Edith A. Miller at dress.

Jennifer Murray, a graduate of FIDM in Los Angeles, and her partner Nancy Gibson, previously an Investment Banker, met in 2009. Two years later, on an unexpected run-in, the two found themselves wearing the same striped t-shirt from a menswear company. This unusual coincidence became the inspiration for their joint collaboration, Edith A. Miller, the new sister company to the American heritage men’s clothing brand, Robert P. Miller. The collection is made with 100% American grown and spun cotton from the American South and is produced in one of the few remaining historic American knitting mills in the Northeast. Beloved basics, Edith A. Miller designs are inspired by the great tradition and history of active, independent, thinking American beauties.

Introducing | DANNIJO

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

We are very happy to announce the arrival of DANNIJO jewelry at dress.

The creative instincts of sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder led them to jewelry design at an early age when they taught themselves wirework with their father’s medical tools. They began selling their work to local boutiques while still in high school. People soon began taking notice of their jewelry, and seemingly overnight, their hobby turned into a full-fledged business. In 2008, DANNIJO jewelry was founded. Their versatile and ever-changing statement collection is all hand-made in New York and offers an eclectic range of designs, a perfectly balanced combination of Danielle’s bohemian, rocker vibe and Jodie’s timeless sophistication.
