Philly is in for a treat. Opening this Friday in the heart of Fishtown is Toile, Philly’s latest high-end atelier and showroom featuring custom designs from owner and 2010 graduate of Philadelphia University, Bianca De Pietro. Local independent designers and their respective collections will also be represented at Toile. Among them include Sophi Reaptress, Kaitlyn Elizabeth, Earl Salko, and Vannucci Ltd. Jewelry.
From handmade readywear, jewelry, handbags to custom clothing and gowns, Toile has a little something for everyone. Merchandise is all made to measure meaning that any personal customizations or tailoring is done right at Toile. Said to carry “a unique variety of seasonal ready-to-wear, bridal, evening wear, accessories, and custom garments,” Toile will have a strong focus on couture, evening wear and bridal pieces as well. Perfect for brides looking for that one-of-a-kind gown for her special day, we expect great things from Toile. A sense of community is also a key factor to the showroom as every First Friday will display a new local artist’s collection or exhibition.
