Founded in 2012, The 16th Bar is the only high end brand representing the average height women of society. Inspired by stories, life, film, and music. We dress women of thought-provoking mentalities, driven to make a change, turn heads, and influence society. To bring awareness and to bring truth to the world. To give you the power to better live and to better understand life. To awaken society with the truth.
My intent is not to change the opinions of anyone, but to influence the mindset of entire nations. We stand together to empower citizens to take control of their lives. To break the barriers of the perception of beauty and success, and disrupt the status quo.
THE 16TH BAR- [thee siks-teenth bahr]-noun
1. In musical notation, a bar (or measure) is a segment of time defined by a given number of beats of a given duration.
Within the first 16 bars, the rhythmic style of the piece is established. This introduction, in other words, provides you
with a melody that allows you to establish your first impression of the song.
2. When you walk into any room, you only have one chance at a good first impression. Your image, is your first impression.
Your image, is The 16th Bar.
Music is an impression, a mark, and a story. One note can set the mood. It is music that can change a thought, and make a society come together as one.
Let your first impression leave a mark on the world.
Founded on the belief of empowering society, I began this mission to produce long-lasting first impressions. I want everyone to have the possibility to rise above any situation.
The idea of The 16th Bar began just a few years ago. After moving to Los Angeles, I launched my first womenswear collection for the Fall 2012 season. The summer of 2014, I packed up and moved to New York City. After learning a great deal working together with an incredible manufacturing team right in NYC, with a team with over 30 years of experience and approval from the CFDA, we can say we are truly excited to now be manufacturing in house. We have high expectations for our quality and brand, and so should you.
