Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. And then sometimes, you start your own clothing line. First things first, I’d like to ask your forgiveness for such a desolate existence on our Sunny Slide Up blog but when you’re being a nut, or not, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important – you guys. Having said that, I’d like to introduce you to www.georgeandfran.com
That’s right, I did it. I feel like Andy Samberg when he was on that boat – anything is possible. Of course, I couldn’t have done it alone so let me get my “thank yous” out of the way. Without my two beautiful models, Dyce Danger and Decker Darling there would be no one to try my clothes on and take pictures of. Perhaps the best part of their support is the fact that they have no choice. And, without the love/support/charming-good-looks of my husband, Brad, there would be no one there to listen to me tell stories of how difficult designing (and sewing) clothes can actually be. Plus all those irresistible little drawings you see on our website… straight from his dome.
We went live on September 1st and without question this has been the most nerve-wracking/stressful/soulful/exciting/rewarding month of my life. I love writing and it’s always been such a great outlet for me but I couldn’t help but feel like something was missing. Having gone to college to study the fine arts I wanted something people could see, not just read. I never thought of myself as a great writer but then again, I never thought of myself as a great sewer either. So, left armed with nothing more than desire and commitment I set out to develop a whole new set of skills and options for parents wanting their children to stand out in a crowd.
Our slogan is “for the offbeat child” because that’s our dream(s) for our children and that’s what we want to encourage in other parents. In a world of normalcy, we want to be there for those folks that try to break the mold. To borrow a quote from Chris Martin, “we live in a beautiful world” and we’re just trying to do our part to make it prettier.
In the spirit of making things pretty, I’d like to tell you guys about a giveaway we’re offering here on Sunny Slide Up to celebrate two amazing years of awesomeness!
See illustrious illustrations below for more details and as always, read more Sunny Slide Up and outfit your children in more George & Fran.
Love, Jenn. XOXO
