You know those weekends where the movies seem too culturally void, you don’t want to walk around an expansive museum for six hours because you’re wearing unrealistically high heels, and it’s raining so you can’t attempt to be active with a brisk walk in the park?

Keep an eye out for femmes d’armes: the next big name in fashion founded by sisters Fannie Chan and Connie Majoros. These ladies have not only redefined lace by implementing a deep V back and sky-high slit in their black Bailey Dress, but they have also gone against the grain by producing their pieces in New York City’s Garment Center.
