Series: Meet the Makers

At Colby June, we strive for the most ethical and sustainable way. We are always searching for like minded brands to support. This is the first post in a series on other brands and how they inspire us. By sharing the companies that inspire us, we hope that it inspires you to take a step towards supporting slow fashion and independent makers.

Brass Clothing

Jay Adams and Katie Doyle launched Brass in September 2014 with a small run of 5 dress styles. They were at a point in their lives where they could no longer stomach fast-fashion. Their careers had progressed and they needed to look more professional. They were also becoming increasingly aware of the toll that disposable fashion takes on our planet and people’s lives. While they started Brass to satisfy their own needs, it’s their customer base of smart, strong, passionate women who keep them going.  Moreover, they are forming close, lasting relationships with their factories that are motivated by trust, goodwill, and a devotion to creating an excellent product.

Take a look at some of my favorite pieces and some beautiful pieces that are coming soon!

A Union of Craft and Design


Our first collaboration with Hayden Mayer of HM Jewelry was a complete success!  We designed and crafted an engagement ring for a young couple.  The minimal yet classic ring is a rose cut diamond solitaire with a delicate fishtail pave band.  This recent collaboration has inspired an engagement ring line pairing Colby June’s nature inspired aesthetic with HM Jewelry’s exceptional craftsmanship.  Images below are from the collaborative process between Colby June, Hayden, and our inspiring clients.

 

Colby June and HM Jewelry will be unveiling WED an engagement ring line

in the spring of 2017.
