It started three years ago when Emma McIlroy and Julia Parsley were in the men's department at Urban Outfitters wondering "why dont they make this stuff for us?!" Three years later they quit their nice well-paid corporate jobs at Nike and busted out on their own. They have since recruited 20+ full-timers, part-timers and helpers, all tomboys in their own right.
Wildfang, which means "tomboy" in German, is based out of Portland, Oregon and offers menswear inspired clothing and accessories tailored for women. Gone are the days of gender specific sartorial looks and thanks to Wildfang, like minded women can now come together and shop the carefully chosen items of the new online shop.
"As you move through history, whether it's Patti Smith or Audrey Hepburn, I think it's very clear to see where the tomboy style has come from. It's just as much about a mind set and an attitude as it is about a style. Those women were confident. They were bold, they were fun. And they really stood for something, something you could look up to. That's certainly what we think of when we think of a tomboy."
