Christina and I spent last weekend at the Miami Swim Show and Cabana, which are 2 international fashion shows held in Miami each July. We at coton frais attend shows like these around the world looking for the most unique and special products for our clients. We were obviously expecting beautiful girls in little itty bitty bikinis in perfect bodies and of course beautiful clothing and accessories from around the world..but we were not expecting or prepared for the two women we encountered.
One, that welcomed us into her “family” of women who own a business, create and produce straw bags, gives African women jobs so they can feed their family…and then in turn to be sold to people like us and then sold to people like you. The “family circle”… women helping women.
The other passionate woman we met has now devoted her mature life (who was a former Turkish Vogue Editor) to get this …bringing fashion clothing designs and materials to the Somalian border for the women refugees to create. She said “ they can’t speak or write but they can sew”. She offers them now a job that gives them money to eat, feed their family and have pride of accomplishment.
Two amazing women making a “fashionable difference” in the world…just shows you determination, and enterprising thought, compassion, understanding and some hard work can change lives.
Ladies Rock on! We at coton frais support you and your effort 100%.
Nothing says summer like bright white cotton. Especially when your beautiful new blanc cotton dress has a touch of sequins, lace or ribbon. At coton frais, in both boutiques in Jupiter and Boca we provide only the very best French inspired cotton designs for our wonderful clients. And, since they are our own private label, you will be wearing something extra special. And, cotton is “the” fabric for summer…breathable, cool and light. Add a little tan to one of our gorgeous dresses or tops and your will make a fashionable fashion statement this summer! White, white and more white….that’s summer!
We hear every day "I love this store, I love everything in it”…
When you are buying beautiful French inspired apparel from our boutiques, as well as gorgeous gifts and accessories you need to know that every item you see was picked out just for you.
We travel the world to find the perfect white cotton, or ribbon or sequins for our private label designs. We also look for the best possible unique vendors that create and design pieces that we know you will love. We scan the globe looking for fashion ideas that you, our client would like to purchase. We examine quality and style and always have “you” in mind when we are making our selections. Whether you are shopping on line, or in one of our stores in Boca, or Jupiter we want your experience to be the best it can be. And just remember each item from a leather bag from Italy, to a linen dress from Greece, or a one-of-a-kind necklace from Paris… was hand picked just for you. Kind of makes you feel special doesn’t it?
Well, we think thats the way its supposed to be. So enjoy…and think of us, while we’re thinking of you.
