Longtime friends and fashion industry veterans Claire Lampert and Stacy Daily's obsession with denim started long before the start of their curated vintage studio Where I was From. Their experience re-working denim also long preceeded the current vintage denim craze. Years of sourcing all over the country, sifting through massive palettes of old garments in search of that perfect imperfect pair, was enough know-how for the duo to start their own affordable collection, using denim from 19th century family-owned mills in Georgia and North Carolina and vintage inspired cuts that are so meticulously designed. Their recent collaboration with Bode, a menswear line made using antique quilts, grain sacks and bed linens, is a nod to their beginnings and love of heirlooms. Antique denim aprons and vintage Levi's 501's denim are reworked, using Victorian friendship quilts, into one of a kind jeans and jackets. They're like works of art . . . perfection!
