Customers are personally fitted by a Carlisle stylist for the latest in the designer's collections. The company claims that its pampered environment helps its customers make better wardrobe decisions. Carlisle's design team releases four collections per year, one each for spring, summer, fall and the holidays. It caters to a female clientele of executives, TV personalities, diplomats, cultural leaders and other wealthy women that don't have the time or don't wish to shop at public venues.
Shoppers select their fabrics from some of the best mills in Europe, Italy and France. They then choose their styles and are measured and fitted. The clothing is assembled at contracted facilities in Hong Kong and delivered to the clients door. Many stylists also make personal closet calls to clients homes to help them maximize their wardrobe combinations.
The company was founded in 1981 and boasts that its designers were trained by fashion icons such as Bill Blass, Christian Dior, Burberry, Tahari, Ellen Tracy and others.Learn more about Clothing
