If you’re anything like us, which we think you are, then you think every month should be a little more dedicated to celebrating powerful women. And now that International Women's Day is here, we are going to celebrate a little louder than we do every other month by offering 25% off these four women-owned brands on the Bohemian Mama mobile app until March 17th. We are proud to carry a lot of women-owned and -operated brands with strong missions to sustainability, so in celebration, we are thrilled to highlight four female-owned fashion brands that we love.
Flynn Skye has a special place in our hearts because we know what it’s like to decide to follow your passion without knowing exactly how to do that. Amber Farr started Flynn Skye out of her garage, and while she may not have had design experience, she knew her inspiration was all that she needed. And we are so glad that she took the leap. According to their website, this Venice-California-based line is "made for women by women." They don’t mass produce anything, which means that not only do they focus on keeping their processes sustainable, but you also end up with incredible, unique styles.
When it comes to powerful, inspirational women, Lisa Popp is at the top of our list. She founded her LA-based brand, Stillwater, in 2014 to give women the fashion necessities that they’ve been searching for. Spending her life on both the casual, coast of California and the fast-paced city, she has found a great way to balance out both styles. They sum it up best when they say that Stillwater is “designed for women who live boldly and prefer clean lines.” Of course, besides their mission to dress women in the bold lives they lead, they also are here to protect our planet. They source all of their materials locally and keep every step of the process within 10 miles of their downtown office.
Angela O’Brien first joined the fashion industry as a model but quickly realized that she was ready to be the one creating the products that she was wearing. In 2006, she set off on a yearlong, worldwide journey with her husband, and by the time they arrived back in California, Cleobella was ready to join the world. Inspired by her travels, she wanted to create global-inspired styles, but beyond this, she wanted to make sure that Cleobella collaborated with local artisans to make sure they were given more stable incomes and opportunities. If that wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with this California- and Bali-based brand, they also donate 1% of their profits to empower women around the world.
Mary Myers had an early start in the fashion industry as a third-generation seamstress, but she knew she wanted more. While she looks back fondly on her time of designing jewelry for larger brands, it was time for her to take her fate into her own hands and start Novella Royale. Mary now designs four eco-friendly collections a year for Southern California-based Novella Royale, and we are so honored to get to support this stunning female-owned brand.
