Elevate Special Clothing to Star Status with Hangers Couture
By Alison Blackman
Special Hangers for Special Items:
I’ll get right to the point, that Hangars Couture has created the girliest, most glamorous hangars I’ve ever seen and they elevate any piece of clothing to star status. When you put something on one of these pearl or crystal beaded hangers you’ll find that they are not just substantial enough to hold even a heavy coat or gown, they signify that “this is a special garment” that deserves special treatment.
You probably have that special item of clothing that you don’t every want to give away, or that you’re saving to wear “some day.” Maybe it was the dress you wore to your prom. Maybe it’s the dress you wore when you met the love of your life. Maybe it’s the dress you’re planning to wear to your wedding, or that is already your beloved wedding dress. Maybe it’s not a dress at all, but it is a coat, or a cape, or something else (baby clothes? lingerie?) .
Whatever is is, and whatever the reason, you have to store it somewhere. If you put it on a utilitarian hangar that might bend, or leave creases, or actually drop the item to the floor, it’s risky. But plain wooden or padded hangers are just so, well…boring and not special!
An Idea Born in Sweden!
At a recent Editor’s Showcase in New York City, I met Brittney Zeller, creator of Hangers Couture. She’s a perky mom-preneur whose display of pearl and crystal beaded hangers impossible to ignore. The hangars are substantial, meant for showing off and storing even a heavy gown or coat. They are also available in skirt/pant hangers and small and baby sizes.
The Idea for Hangers Couture was inspired by a trip to Scandinavia. As I stood at the bustling booth, Brittney explained that she saw her first beaded hanger on vacation visiting relatives in a tiny seaside village in Sweden. A boutique there displayed clothing on beaded hangars, and she found beaded hangers inEurope but not in the United States. She got home and her beaded hanger business was born.
Elevate your Clothing and Your Closet:
Something as simple as a pretty hanger can make you feel special. Why not elevate your special clothing to star status with these utterly girly, glamorous hangers and add a few to your closet? If you see them in person, you realize that whether you are 15, or 50, they are simply, utterly, adorable, and you want them!
Brittney says she has known women who have done their entire closets in these hangers. That’s probably out of the ballpark of a little splurge for most, but even one or two of these (they’re sold in singles or packs of five) are affordable. They also make killer wedding and baby shower gifts. If you’re a bride, they would make a nice favor for your wedding party, too.
I am told that these hangars can be found in some of the off-price stores like TJMax and Marshalls but I haven’t found them in my local stores –perhaps the entire stock has already been snapped up by eager women who want them.
Hangers Couture are sold individually for a srp. of $5.25 or $15.00 for five. For more information visit the HangarsCouture web site.
