Work wear, corporate styles and and business fashions for chic + corporate women.
Tall women of New York and the tri-state area … open your calendar, and clear your schedule for this Friday and Saturday! There's a new tall retailer coming to town. Chèlbè, a lifestyle brand providing clothing to women 5’9” and taller, is hosting a pop-up shop at 187 East Broadway on Friday and Saturday from 12-8pm.
I had the recent pleasure of meeting Chèlbè founder Diana for a bellini and a wonderful conversation.
SFS: Chèlbè is such a beautiful word, what does it mean?
Chèlbè: Having roots as a creole word, Chèlbè means tastefully elegant, graceful, or luxurious in dress, style, design, etc.
SFS: When did you launch? What motivated you to create the brand?
Chèlbè: September 2015. As a tall woman myself, I empathize with so many other tall women who struggle to find length-appropriate clothing, made with quality materials, and sold at reasonable prices. Tall women should not have to pay more for their clothing because of their elevated stature. I created Chèlbè to provide on-trend fashion wear tailored to fit women with longer inseams and arm lengths that are challenging to source at traditional retail stores.
SFS: Where do you find inspiration for your pieces?
Chèlbè: The runway and street styles. I spend a large portion of the year in Greece and the United States, so I visit as many stores as I can and observe what women are wearing on the streets.
Come meet Diana, and myself this weekend at the Chèlbè pop-up shop for champagne, and a stunning display of the entire summer collection. And bring your old clothing! Chèlbè will be collecting gently used clothing to donate to those in need in Haiti.
Hope to see you there!
