Inspired by the accessibility and timelessness of accessories, Donofrio wanted to ensure that everyone who fell in love with her coveted prints could own a piece of the collection. This refreshing venture is currently sold in her online store featuring her award winning prints, alongside two new print collections. Four classic scarf silhouettes will be offered. “Accessories are inclusive and loyal. They fit all shapes, sizes and genders”, says the designer, who has been developing the pieces over the past season.
“The unlimited way that a scarf can be worn, combined with a statement making illustration and print, proves that it is the one true investment piece”.
Donofrio also believes that investment pieces shouldn’t have to come at a high cost. When she started her label, One Imaginary Girl, two years ago, the designer wanted to make her prices financially accessible to the consumer, while also ensuring that her business still thrived. Donofrio plans to add other shapes and soft goods to the One Imaginary Girl accessory line going forward.
The 100% silk accessories will continue the designer’s commitment to sustainability, by being made by women in North America.
