To complement our 'BURST OUT WITH FRUITS AND FLOWERS' campaign to be published in In Fashion Magazine,  Sima of Smart Designs,  brought the finishing touches with props such as floral crowns and flowers…for a super romantic effect.

A big thanks to The Back Room for supplying the coolest premises. With an old world atmosphere smacking of romanticism, (think early 20th century), and details such as a false door which was actually a bookshelf; gave the aged romantic look, a surreal feel. We were looking for just the right place for our clothing to stand out, and we knew we found our home the moment we entered The Back Room located in NYC.

MTJF Factory Photo shoot Sept 2013

MTJF Factory Photo shoot Sept 2013

In Sept  2013 we had our very first brand photo shoot! The photo shoot took place at a factory with our model Lenka wearing our pre production samples.

This was the  one of the first steps in creating More Than Just Figleaves.  After two years of research, trials, and errors; The Vintage inspired line was born!

The factory atmosphere and pre production illustrated the birth and inception of More Than Just Figleaves, and the personal touch rendered to every garment.

 Four skirt styles and two blouse styles emerged. Introducing the classic crème blouse and black godet skirt. Pocket skirt in wool, and  godet blouse.
