After graduating from Pratt with a BFA in Fashion Design, Dorothy Mann went on to design for many New York design firms. Every day while commuting to New York she observed all the women in suits heading to their jobs. Having studied fashion, it was clear there was no fashion in the workplace.
More women were attaining high level positions and needed advice on what was appropriate to wear. So, she opened her own store in Greenwich CT to help.
By providing consultations and special orders her clients trusted her and welcomed her advice. As women's lives continued to change and become more active they found it even more difficult to find appropriate clothing for their events. She moved her store to New Canaan CT in 2005. Every day she has listened to her customer's concerns. Shopping had become a chore. Her customers became discouraged with the emphasis on youth only styles. No sleeves, too short, too trendy, totally inappropriate for family or work events. Today, women's role in the workplace is so diverse. There is no one accepted "look". Young women starting their first job, women starting a new career after raising a family as well as the veteran women executives all have different roles and different styles. Dorothy Mann has taken this to the next level and is addressing all these issues on an individual basis. She carries pants that flatter, dresses with sleeves and accessories that complete the outfit. In addition, she offers special orders, alterations and advice. Each customer is dressed appropriately and projects a sense of style no matter what her age.
