Today we’re excited to feature the story behind Set Ready Garment Bags, sent to us by no other than the company’s creative founder, Sarah Cogan. Sarah’s story and her products are way too inspiring not to share with all of you! We know you’ll want to pick up some of her amazing garment bags once you learn more. Take it away, Sarah!
We’ve all been there: we have an important special event like a wedding. We’ve picked out all the pieces for the outfit we’re going to wear. We’re excited to see the whole outfit come to life. But when we get to our destination, we can’t find our earrings or cufflinks in the bottom of our bag. Or worse, we realize we forgot to pack them at all. Panic sets in and our joyous event loses a little of its luster because we know it’s not quite perfect.
For me as a professional film and TV costume designer, this was an all too common occurrence. I found my team constantly searching for missing pieces to outfits. I wanted to see what I had styled more clearly in order to get a better sense of what my team was wearing and what I needed, but the available garment bags made that impossible to do this without taking everything out of them.
When I couldn’t find a good solution, I decided to take matters into my own hands and created the Set Ready Garment Bag to include pockets for one’s jewelry, accessories, and shoes so the entire outfit is ready in one easy grab-and-go bag. I quickly realized I needed to bring Set Ready to brides, grooms, and bridal parties so they could plan and store their outfits leading up to the big day. The Wedding Bag was created especially for brides with an added veil divider.
Most of us plan what we’re going to wear long in advance of the wedding day. We buy the dress or the suit and then slowly gather the other pieces from different stores over time. With garment bags like Set Ready’s, you’re able to see everything come together while giving you a place to keep everything together.
Your days will become hectic as you get closer to the big day. The last thing you want to worry about is remembering where all the different pieces are for your wedding day look. Using a one of Set Ready’s garment bags is an added level of insurance that everything will work out as planned and that you will look perfect for your big day.
The best part? You no longer need to unpack. Set Ready’s patented design is specifically played out with getting dressed in mind. Once you get to where you’re going, you just hang your bag and you’re ready to get dressed!
