We absolutely loved Hailee Steinfeld in this white Alexandre Vauthier dress, accompanied by those metallic purple thigh-high boots! This is seriously a statement look, and we think she killed it! Obsessed.

Sza brought beauty and grace in her sheer Atelier Versace dress! We just cannot get over the details of the bodice and those dramatic sleeves! Simply stunning.

Jeanette Getrost Collab: The Scoop

Jeanette Getrost 5

 

“Some days are driven by inspiration and I feel this incredible desire to express myself. The process is really my favorite part because I feel most at peace when creating.” — Getrost

We are so excited to announce our upcoming collaboration with Jeanette Getrost, a freelance fashion illustrator who was named one of the industry’s most in-demand illustrators by none other than Vogue magazine!

Throughout the course of her career, Getrost has worked with many luxury brand clients such as Dior, Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, and Tiffany & Co. Not to mention, she’s also been featured in our some of our favorite magazines including Vogue, Flaunt, and W Mag! So basically, we’re obsessed.

As you can see through her gorgeous illustrations, Jeanette has a unique take on fashion that’s inspired by not only designers, but also the beautiful world around her. She treasures the vintage aesthetic that’s created through her delicate, exaggerated lines, which we thought would look stunning on a phone case. Jeanette is always working to achieve her vision, and our squad is thrilled to be apart of the process.

Much like us here at Fifth & Ninth, most of Jeanette’s business is done through social media, especially Instagram. She has an insane following of 107K loyal followers, with thousands of likes constantly flooding each photo. So, I guess we’re not the only ones who are obsessed with everything that is Jeanette Getrost.

Aside from her incredible collaborations with esteemed brands, Jeanette also sells her own original artwork online, ranging from fifty-dollar silhouette paintings to three-hundred and fifty dollar fashion illustrations. These feminine artworks are the perfect designs for every aspect of a fashionista’s life. They work flawlessly for wall art, clothing graphics, and everything in between.

In fact, here at Fifth & Ninth, we thought they were so great that we wanted to put them on our cases! 

We are so excited to announce that we have created the most feminine, artistic, inspired, and just plain PERFECT phone case that you’re going to be hopelessly in love with. To learn more about the specifics of our collab, click here!

We seriously cannot wait for you to see it, because we know you’re going to be just as obsessed as we are! So, keep your eye out for this collab, because it’s definitely one you won’t want to miss! 

XOXO,

The Squad at Fifth & Ninth

Spotlight on: Bryce McGillivray

It’s every Rhode Island born fashionista’s dream. Graduate from the University of Rhode Island with your first textile kit in hand, pack your bags, and head to the big city. That’s exactly what our Creative Director, Bryce McGillivray, did when she graduated in 2014. However, Bryce’s dream was completely revamped once she experienced New York first hand.

Following her graduation, Bryce took a bold step and took on an unpaid internship at Bismark Phillips Communications and Media, a PR agency that represents some of the most famous names in the fashion industry. With the experience she gained, a door was then opened for her as an Executive Assistant for Kelly Cutrone, who gained her fame being a public relations mogul in NYC. Although the experience was incredible, it gave Bryce a new mindset to realize her heart belonged home. “These two experiences gave me a very clear understanding of how tough the fashion industry is, and it wasn’t necessarily what I had set out in the beginning”, Bryce explained.

Returning home to Rhode Island, Bryce reconsidered where she wanted to take her career. After reconnecting with Mark Mesrobian, the Executive Vice President of Fifth & Ninth’s parent company, Complete Sourcing Solutions, she accepted a position as the social media and marketing coordinator.

As the saying goes, you can take the fashionista out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the fashionista (or that’s how we say it here at F&N!). After working as the social media and marketing manager for a few months, Bryce’s passion for fashion and design was pushing her to accomplish more. She then developed into a Creative Director for a new in house brand, Fifth & Ninth. The name was inspired by the fashion garment district, “where trends are born.”

Given the freedom to let her creative side soar, Fifth & Ninth took off. In it’s most recent endeavor, F&N has partnered with several online celebrities and social media influencers, such as Smashbox Cosmetics Lip Editor in Chief, Vlada Haggerty, (you can purchase her case here!?) to create a line of cobranded iPhone cases. In the future, the company is looking to expand into lifestyle products such as sunglasses and watches.

Since launching the brand, Bryce has been passionate about providing internships to local Rhode Island girls so they can get industry experience in their own backyard. In addition, the company also took on eight extraordinary College Brand Ambassadors (stay tuned to read about the program)! Bryce’s advice to young female entrepreneurs is to “take the low paying job, the free internship, feel what it is like to be at the bottom and struggle.”

The sky’s the limit and the opportunities are endless when it comes to F&N’s future. Bryce has the vision to expand their tech accessories to more than just phone cases and beauty banks, potentially adding sunglasses, watches, handbags, and so on. Bryce is also newly engaged (???) so a wedding collection could potentially be on her mind.

Bryce does an exceptional job at representing the city in the Ocean State, by influencing girls to believe that you don’t have to be in New York to be successful in the fashion industry. For more behind the scenes about F&N, check out our article in the Providence Journal and Rhode Island Monthly. To keep up with our Creative Director Bryce, follow her blog Blonde in Boutins.
