IDLEWILD CARE GUIDE
An important, yet often overlooked, facet of ethical and sustainable fashion is garment care. All of the clothing we purchase should be handled as carefully as possible to increase longevity, and to create as little microfiber waste as possible. Check out our full blog post, which will walk you through our favorite processes for caring for our own clothing from start to finish! Some methods are tried and true, while others have been influenced by our favorite laundry care brand, The Laundress.
WELCOME TO IDLEWILD
Idlewild is a clothing and shoe store in downtown Cincinnati's historic OTR neighborhood. Our multi-brand fashion store offers a selection from world-renowned and emerging designers.
First and foremost, the owners of Idlewild are a family who love art, design, and fashion. Julie Clark and Jessica Murray purchased Idlewild in May 2018. Integral to forging that new partnership was Tessa Clark (daughter and cousin), who manages the store with forward-thinking drive and savvy under their leadership.
Julie’s long-standing passion in the art and design world is her ceramic work, however she has been a bit of a curator and entrepreneur for the majority of her life. You can shop her jewelry in store and online here.
Jessica is a graphic designer, photographer, Flâneur, and Francophile, as well as the creator of a line of bags inspired by her years in Paris. She utilizes her photography on the bags and printed products. Shop her designs here.
Tessa is an emerging Fashion Designer based in Cincinnati, Ohio. A graduate of DAAP at the University of Cincinnati, her brand, Grind and Glaze is stocked in store and on our website here. Tessa was a design contestant on Season 17 of Project Runway on Bravo, where she made it to the top 5!
