When you meet two people who have just started their own company called ‘That’s a Wrap’ by the Bodacious and one of them tells you that they are just ‘Two old Jewish ladies toiling away by candlelight’ you have to laugh. Shellie Smith and Fran Morgan are anything but.
The company quickly making a name for itself in the Georgian Triangle formed almost by accident. Shellie was visiting Fran’s upholstery studio way back on Grey Road 40 and the two very different personalities clicked immediately.
|The two designers bring one of a kind wraps made with luxuries fabrics to the forefront this fashion season. It was very cool visiting the studio and seeing the chalk marks on the wall – “what’s that?” I asked…Fran and Shelley looked at each other and chuckled…”that’s our pattern”. A customer had called in to order a custom wrap for his wife as a gift, they marked the wife’s height in chalk on the wall and then the creative process starts.
Wraps come in all shapes and sizes, and can be made with virtually any type of fabric. Every garment is one of a kind, designed to enhance the lush and unique materials which now include the finest quality European leather, suede and sheepskin.
So if you need to find something this Christmas season for the special lady in your life…start at Furbelows, the ultra fashionable clothing store on Bruce Street in Thornbury.
