While on Twitter yesterday I realized I missed a message from the owner of Talltique letting me know about her new store located in Arlington, VA. You can only visit the store by making an appointment and their online store will open later this year.
I thought the write up on this site was interesting. Here are a few excerpts from Talltique‘s pages:
At Talltique we are revolutionizing the way that tall women shop for clothes. We focus on providing the highest quality garments specially tailored to fit the frames of women 5’10” and over. Many of our garments are handmade in the USA from organic fabrics. Our goal is to carry yoga clothes, business suits and everything in between.
Beginning on December 15th, 2011 you can make a private appointment to shop in our showroom in Arlington, VA. Our personal stylist can also bring styles on the road to do personal wardrobe consultations in-home (up to 2 hours away from Arlington, VA).
Our online shop will open later in 2012.
Talltique is the dream come true of Helen Pappas. Helen stands 6’3” and has been fed up with her options for shopping for clothing for years. She recently graduated from Georgetown University Mcdonough School of Business and is combining her business degree with her love of fashion and discontentment with the current options when shopping for extra-long clothes. With the help and support of her sister Irene, who is currently studying fashion, Talltique is breaking the mold when it comes to clothing shopping for tall women. We do this by selling stylish and high-quality clothes cut specifically for tall women. While our clothes are cut for women 5’10” and up, we specialize in fashions for women over 6’. We also hold ourselves to the highest standards of green business practices.
Here are a few pieces from their showroom. I may have to make an appointment!!
