About Modish and Swank

Modish & Swank Clothing Co.

 

Modish & Swank was birthed out of a passion for loving to be original and wanting to express my love for clothing in the way that allowed me to merge all the amazing things I love into fashion. I love to be different in the way I dressed and never want to wear the same pieces I saw in multiple stores. I have a love for the vintage timeless era and the essence of truly beautiful fabric. I am romanced by the 50’s and 60’s era because of the love for fabric they had in this time and I feel empowered by the freedom to design couture pieces.

I want to take us back to a time where fabric meets design and leaves you speechless!!

 

Mission Statement

Modish and Swank cares about everyone’s love for clothes. You will feel taken back in time with inspiration of vintage style from the 60’s, merged with the classic simplicity of fashion and the excitement of high end couture.

Fashion choice could exploit poor working conditions

Woods said she will not shop at certain companies because of their links to forced labor and disregard for appalling work conditions.

“The glamorous part of fashion is the runway show, but the runway show is the very tail-end of a collection,” Woods said. “The process between when you decide or when you sketch out a collection and when you decide to produce it — which is where I am right now — there’s a blood, sweat and tears period.”
