Rach Parcell, the pink-loving Nordstrom shopper behind Pink Peonies, officially launched her online store today. She’s apparently selling clothes she designed. But she says it’s not like that time she designed jewelry. According to her comment on instagram that whole fiasco wasn’t really her fault:
…I was in a licensing deal. I was unable to make final decisions on design because I was not the one funding the business. I hired a lawyer to get me out of that contract because I didn’t agree with some of the decisions being made and they told me things that would happen that actually didn’t (like everything being designed by me and not just bought wholesale). It’s much cheaper and less time consuming to buy wholesale, that’s why that decision was made by the people who were funding the brand…
She went on to say she “got out of that contract to create a brand that was my own business and funded by me so at the end of the day, I have the final decision” and accordingly posted gram pics and snaps of herself drawing designs and throwing fabric over dressforms.
The result is mostly a bunch of pink and white dresses and skirts in straightforward, unoriginal shapes perfect for wearing to weddings or Easter church services. Sizes go up to a 10/12 and prices begin at $100. She is evidently already working on her fall line.
