First you helped local jewelry brand Geography 541 reach their fundraising goal. Then, you rallied to make United by Blue’s bison socks a smashing success. Now, local boutique Smak Parlour needs your help. To celebrate 10 years in their Old City brick-and-mortar, they are releasing a new collection and they’ve launched a Kickstarter to help fund it. The ultra-feminine, retro collection includes two dresses, two peplum tops, a tent blouse and a high-waisted skater skirt — all in the sweetest prints imaginable. Prices will range from $78 to $128.

Brand masterminds Abby and Katie have collaborated with local artists to create their one-of-a-kind prints. Collaborators include: muralist and street artist Joe Boruchow, Smak Parlour employee and illustrator Chelsea Goich, and Dave Holley, an artist and graphic designer (he imprinted their insanely cool fashion truck!). And we’re officially smitten with this homegrown collection. 

To produce it, they’re asking for $15,000 to cover design, print and production costs. They’re already at $8,198 with 22 days to go as of publishing, so let’s give them a hand. The best part? Pledges over $12 come with a bevy of Smak Parlour goodies like scarves, tees, prints and pieces from the collection. To check out the Kickstarter and back their project, click here.
