Help SG Expand into New Studio!
Thank you so much for watching our video which fully explains our brand + campaign. SmartGlamour is a body positive, feminist clothing brand of ethical, customizable pieces in sizes XXS-6X and beyond. We promote self acceptance and love, using clothing as a tool to do so.
We currently reside in Astoria, Queens - but are moving our production to a brand new studio and office space in Greenpoint Brooklyn! The deposit is down and now we need your assistance.
Moving in NYC is expensive - and as of April 1st, we will need to fund the second deposit, first month's rent, and moving expenses. We'll also need to purchase new storage solutions, desks, and more to furnish our space. As a small, self funded business, this is a lot to fund at once - which is where you come in. Your donations will help us fund this move, getting us settled into our new location.
Please be sure to check out the rewards we have for each donation level - ranging from a thank you to a fully customized piece just for you! We can't wait to have the only truly inclusive showroom that accomodates all bodies. And we hope you continue following us on our journey while we change the fashion industry from the inside out. Thank you!
As I created the new Workwear look book this weekend, I thought about this campaign, and in what other ways it can be helpful for myself and SmartGlamour.
I've decided to raise my goal amount from $2000 to $3000 (we had already surpassed $2000 by a bit - which is so, so wonderful!)
Here is where the additional money will go:
Last September, after a year and a half of zero issues with it, my computer up and died. While a lot of SG work is done by making clothing - the rest: website, social media, emailing, research, photo editing, video editing, etc - is done on the computer. In the meantime - I have been using a tablet/laptop that belongs to my Dad. Buying a replacement would be incredibly helpful so I can pass this one back to him asap.
Additionally - I'd love to invest in two more types of photography lights. I shoot and edit every SG look book and campaign myself - and do so with portable lights - I'd love to pick up two new types of portable lighting systems to help make the photos even better.
Thank you again for all the support! My studio move in date is April 1st! I will "end" the campaign in two weeks. Keep sharing and donating, don't forget to read through the rewards!
