One thing about Made in USA clothing is that because cotton is the most popular and widely available fabric to manufacture, most (but not all) items made are variations cotton basics. Some brands are defying that notion, and Eva Franco has been a buzz name I’ve been hearing more about in the fashion world over the last few years.
After graduating from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Franco went to Paris, where she continued her education as a design assistant for Etienne Brunel.
But it was when she moved to Los Angeles that she began crafting clothes for herself. Fueled by positive remarks from passersby, she set up shop at a local flea market, where she was able to learn directly from customers about creating pieces that celebrate the female form.
Today the Eva Franco brand can be found in 800 stores domestically and internationally. All clothing is made in Los Angeles, where her company is based.
I’ll let the clothes speak for themselves – if you love dresses (*raises hand*) you’ll love Eva Franco’s designs!
Do you currently own any Eva Franco pieces? I can’t wait to save up one day and call one of these pretty dresses my own!
