She then set out to improve the way women experience apparel by designing a functional wardrobe with minimal maintenance for the modern, active woman.

Meet Amy Lambroukos, founder of Boston-based Ser Verde Shoes. Her brand will be at For Now for the whole month of May!
I discovered Spanish handmade shoes while traveling. I had purchased several pairs and loved the unique style and comfort that I just couldn’t find here in the states. I decided to do some research and found a small family owned manufacturer in a coastal area in Spain. I work closely with the artisans that handmake Ser Verde and am so happy with the quality.
Ser Verde means be green in Spanish. The color green to me represents balance and well being. It makes me think of lush tropics to make this the perfect warmer weather and resort shoe.

Founded by two sisters, the goal of Dudley Stephens is to re-imagine fleece. All styles are made in the USA using recycled fleece fabrics that look and feel good. They design and create stylish silhouettes using fleece fabric that are comfortable and easy to wear.
