Fame and Partners produces made-to-order clothing for women. While the company specializes in dresses for all occasions, it also creates separates and select outerwear.
Fame and Partners was founded on a mission to change the way women shop for clothing by giving them the freedom to personalize their clothing – choices range from color to sleeve, neckline and garment length – while reducing the waste typically associated with mass-produced, ready-to-wear lines. The company donates $5 from every sale to one of its partners, all charitable organizations focused on empowering women: UN Women, Akilah Institute for Women, or PLAN International.
Prior to launching Fame and Partners, Nyree Corby worked in venture capital, focused on internet and commerce trends. Her experiences in finance, combined with research on the sustainability issues surrounding fast fashion, inspired her to create Fame and Partners. The company is growing quickly: it closed a Series A funding round in 2016, which brought in $10.2 million in venture funding from Firstmark Capital and Upfront Ventures. The company currently produces bridal dresses, and in 2018, it will launch a new line of bridesmaid dresses.
