The Inspiration Behind the Brand

The Inspiration Behind the Brand

I was looking for a new suit for a really important meeting. The more I searched, the more I felt let down. Not only was I wasting my time looking through endless inappropriate workwear options – red mini skirt in the office anyone? –I also couldn’t find the variety or styling that would not only make me feel like me but would be as sharp as the men in their smart navy suits.

What I really wanted was to search through beautifully tailored clothes that were made exclusively for women who work in a corporate setting, and not hunt through hundreds of designs to find an item that was office appropriate. And that came with an affordable price tag. 

 So, the idea for Bow Savile was born.

Bring together a savvy collection of women, friends, all experts in their fields, with the aim of designing and making our own brand of clothing for professional women. It didn’t take long before we all confessed to our admiration for the working wardrobes of Robin Wright and Jessica Pearson and expressed our common frustration with the status quo.

Women are making huge leaps in many professional fields. Yet with all this professional success the fashion industry hasn’t kept up with the needs of women. Traditional tailoring relies on the silhouette shaped by men's suits and the dark suit with a white or pink shirt has become ubiquitous but fails to flatter the female form.

At Bow Savile we believe that we can do our very small bit to help professional women to keep breaking glass ceilings. We want to make shopping for professional workwear easy, and provide quality garments that are more interesting than your run-of-the-mill corporate attire. Our clothes will be produced in a range of colours and textures to flatter and stand out from the crowd. Our aim is to take the leg work out of coordinating and building a corporate wardrobe so professional women can focus on reshaping their professions and industries for the better.
