Fite Fashion formally began in January 2018 when husband and wife Michelle and Thomas Fite signed paperwork forming a company together — but their journey to create a sustainable fashion business started long before then. For well over a decade, Michelle has been honing her design, patterning and sewing skills to fulfill her dream of launching a clothing line that does not compromise sustainable and ethical practices for design.
Every garment we sell is made to order in the Northeastern United States, by people who are paid fairly. We source the most sustainable fabrics available, and focus on fabrics that are produced with clean dyeing techniques and non-exploitative labor.
FITE FASHION Deconstructed Bow Bodice with Pleated Skirt
This combination of our deconstructed bow bodice and cascade pleated skirt creates an elegant sculptural gown
The bodice is origami inspired, using shapes that comprise the deconstructed bow. A hand-sewn corselette provides structure and support for the bodice. It is lined with black cupro that feels like silk against the skin.
The pleated skirt features two shades of fuchsia in the kick pleat for a hint of contrast that will leave a lasting impression.
