Sheryll Fraze, Garment Saver’s Founder, was in search of pretty bags to protect her attire on a cruise back in 2002. A futile search for just the right products became a few sketches (purely as an exercise in “these would be perfect”). Two years later, those drawings became the foundation for the launch of her business Garment Saver.
The first collection contained three items: a garment bag, flat fold bag and shoe bag in satin. Finding sewing facilities that could handle this delicate fabric had its challenges. But Sheryll was determined to find local resources that would keep production here in the USA. What followed were tons of retail shows, and other events to showcase the collection. And also, the gradual expansion into related products.
Fast forward to today and Garment Saver is still going strong, with innovative products to help customers organize and safeguard their treasured attire. The fabric have changed from satin to cottons (in line with more practical and eco-friendly needs). But the desire to create “these would be perfect” products that add style to the task of wardrobe organizing and care remains the same
Garment Saver’s founder, Sheryll Fraze, has loved art and fashion from a very young age. Her desire to create beautiful things made it a natural choice to pursue a career in the creative field.
She was excited to be accepted at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. After graduation, she worked on 7th Avenue for a variety of clothing manufacturers. A chance trip to California ignited her desire for a new lifestyle experience and to expand her creative opportunities.
“Garment Saver”, says Sheryll, “Has given me the chance to combine creating ideas with knowing that customers find them useful for their needs. It is a dream come true, for me as an artist.”
The focus of our business is on designing stylish wardrobe organizers that complement systems and techniques you already have in place. Or, to give you a new solution to a wardrobe care problem.
For example, it is about safely storing that cherished dress or vintage jacket in a breathable, color-coordinated garment bag that makes as unique a statement as the outfit itself. Or, it is using a chic slip cover that keeps folded, delicate items neatly put away on custom closet shelves.
Offering our great products is important. Providing informative clothing care tips is a great addendum.
