for a long time, I kept seeing beautiful, geeky clothes made by Elhoffer Designs, but they were always just prototypes or not for sale and my heart always sunk a little. But now she has a website where you can buy or pre-order her new designs! And let me tell you, they are incredible.
Here's what her about us section says:
Elhoffer Design was founded by Catherine Elhoffer to create higher-end apparel for high quality geeks. The geek fashion world is saturated with clothing, but there are still gaps in the market that she hopes to fill by designing and sewing pieces that flatter the body, pulling from modern fashion trends, and helping her fellow geeks of the world to be both stylish and chic. She prefers a subtle geek nod in her designs, using silhouette, color, texture, and lines to tell the story of the fashion. Catherine hand-makes her custom pieces in her Los Angeles-based studio, designs new pieces in her studio, and oversees small productions run with Los Angeles factories for her mass produced pieces.
Let's check out her awesome collections
