Changewear Bras to Fit Her Mood

There is one little secret that Victoria doesn’t tell: she’s worn-out from buying so many bras and sorting through the jumbled mess in her drawer. Michelle Judson, founder of Changewear® is launching her Kickstarter campaign to fund her brilliant idea that will let women wear their favorite bra every day, while changing the color, look, and style to fit her mood or special occasion.


Changewear bras
The Changewear system lets a woman design her own bra using an unlimited selection of interchangeable colors and patterns in a single garment (through a patented pocket bra system with removable, reversible color inserts called Colorfils®). While it optimizes personalization it also proves to be a tremendous value because she can change the look of her one Changewear bra over and over again. This is the first truly customizable bra introduced to the market.

Judson chose the timing to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month - a cause close to her heart since surviving stage III breast cancer within the past two years. She can appreciate the irony of designing a bra, obtaining a patent and starting a bra company before being diagnosed with breast cancer. Now, the experience has only made her more determined to see her dreams realized.

Color Siete in Bloomingdale's New York Window

Everyone knows that a product placement in the Bloomingdale's New York windows is the ultimate fashion win. 

Apparel Search wanted to bring to your attention a Colombian designer that has finally managed to achieve that win. Color Sietewhich refers to itself as a brand concept, has placed shirts, jackets, suits, pants and denims in the display window of Bloomingdale's New York store.

Starting with only five stores, the company has been pushing its products into the United States market for years, and has expanded its US customer base to over 100 venues.  


Bloomingdales was the ideal venue to raise awareness of the brand, as their customers in particular value craftsmanship and quality.

A Caldas Department company has created over 500 jobs in Colombia by internationalizing its fashion brand. It already has a presence in 12 different stories in the United States.

Shirts, jackets, suits, pants and denims, all made in Colombia, occupy the display windows in Bloomingdale’s. 

This display of Color Siete merchandise is the result of more than 10 years of marketing penetration strategies. Color Siete, based out of Manizales, has managed to place its Rosé Pistol Kids brand into the windows of the most exclusive department retail chain store in the United States.

Luis Felipe Molina, president at Color Siete, explains, “The United States is a country with great business opportunities, as the product is popular with the public and meets all the requirements. Thanks to a better understanding of the market and a series of training programs, Color Siete nowadays supplies over 100 customers.”

Molina adds that Bloomingdale’s is the perfect venue to raise awareness of the Manizales brand, as the chain is famous for its high-quality products, and its clients appreciate the craftsmanship and quality of every garment. 
“It should be noted that more than clothing, Color Siete is a brand concept.”

The Market is Always Growing

Having their own production plant that creates over 500 direct jobs in the country and a sound team were the key to attract a giant such as Bloomingdale's.

The Manizales Company started with 5 stores, and now has branched towards 12 other countries. Color Siete’s Business in the United States has developed at the same time as with other clients such as Nordstrom, Fred Segal, Barneys, and Anthropologie, among others, all of which are highly exclusive stores.
Proexport has provided both strategic and financial support since the beginning of the process in the United States. For Molina, all the support from the government’s office has proven critical for the company’s success, including different schedules and organizing matchmaking forms.

“This is a good example that shows that exporting means growth, and that tools such as the free trade agreements like the one with the United States, help our industry reach the world,” said Maria Claudia Lacouture, president of Proexport Colombia.
