6+ months in the making, and finally this collection is out! We’ve been dreaming about this - like actual panic dreams about the fabric being the wrong color, or our manufacturer not getting everything to us in time, but nevertheless, we persisted. We stressed over EVERY little detail and it all paid off, we are so proud of these pieces.
We’ll spare you the fun(boring) details, but basically this entire collection was made here in LA. We wanted to make sure all workers who contributed to this project were paid fair and livable wages and in doing that, we found out this is actually less common than you’d think. Doing things the right way is SO EXPENSIVE, we legit had people be like, “Wait why are you doing it that way? You can just order from ______ and it’s so much cheaper.”, but we are absolutely uncompromising in our beliefs, so we made it happen the right way.
This collection is really important to us, and represents the next chapter of our OGBFF journey. Yes, we are still simple girls at our core, but this new chapter is all about elevating the simple girl, whilst pushing our sexy funny cool agenda.
Here are some fun outtakes of us, planning, designing, trying on, re-designing, running out of money, etc….
ONE SHOULDER TANK
Our friend Beanie wears an XXS and it's crazy how it looks exactly how we imaged it would. BUT getting to this point was NOT EASY... this is a pretty technical garment, and figuring out the right pattern was quite the process...
This was just a random hilarious idea that was born in the notes app. We knew it would be cool as a short sleeve tank, but we wanted to make our own pattern as opposed to the easier and cheaper option of just buying grey hoodies and cutting off the sleeves. We quickly decided we wanted this to be a set, so we got to work creating the matching shorts.
They are very much perfect as you can see, but we learned a lot of lessons along the way making these 2 pieces. We initially wanted the hoodie to have frayed edges, but we chose the wrong type of fabric to fray, so we couldn't. And we love the way the clean edge looks, so maybe it was meant to be.
This is the first sample they sent .. and we were like... in what world is this what we asked for lmao. They separated the graphic, which made it is look weird and then the text was also being covered by the fabric when you folded it over. So we made all the necessary changes:
Once this was updated, the shorts were perfect!
We will continue to share more about the process on IG and TikTok, but before we end this blog, check out the custom tags we made:
One thing about OGBFF is we will never miss an opportunity to tell you that a hot person made your order.
