Almost There is Celine Kabaker’s new apparel company that is determined to produce thoughtful design at a mid-range price point, catering to a large inclusivity of sizes ranging from XS to 5X. The brand sells 10 curated dresses, in varying cuts and lengths. Timeless in their shape and adaptable in their flattering color range, these made-to-order dresses assure customers they they will continue to reap the benefits of their purchase for years to come.
Celine Kabaker has come from a long history of merchandising and buying experience, beginning her work in the fashion industry when she graduated college and became senior executive assistant to the EVP of merchandising and buying for BCBGMax Azira Group. Building out her portfolio with subsequent positions at Juicy Couture and Victoria’s Secret granted Kabaker important insight into what was working in the fashion industry; and more critically, what wasn’t.
Building off this experience, Kabaker seeks to make Almost There a truly inclusive and fully sustainable brand. The made-to-order modality combined with a limited release dispersement helps avoid problems of overproduction and dead stock. The dresses are designed to use seasonally efficient fabrics and Kabaker has even mentioned the use of re-purposed textiles from Ragfinders.
Almost There launched this Summer, a few months postponed due to COVID restrictions. However, despite restrictions, the launch has been met with much excitement– both Fashionista and the Zoe Report have already covered the inspiring startup.
