SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Quote Couture™ announced today the colorful expansion of its debut black & white collection of inspirational shirts and hoodies. The clothing line features famous quotes spreading positive vibes in a distinctively modern & minimalist fashionable appeal. The black & white collection has already generated many positive responses from passers-by as reported by enthusiastic Quote Couture apparel owners. With several new high-contrast and eye-popping colors such as orange, hot pink, and cobalt blue, among others, the company stays true to its bold personality, and caters to the increased demand for colorful quote apparel for the holiday season.
The collection displays thought-provoking quotes such as: "Fortune favors the bold." by Virgil, "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere." by Albert Einstein, and one of the current fan favorites: "It always seems impossible until it's done." by Nelson Mandela. Customers can shop by quote at: http://quote-couture.com/quote-apparel/all-quotes.html.
Quote Couture is a hit with entrepreneurs and self-starters that see it as a way to express their empowering values into the world. Entrepreneur extraordinaire Sinead Norenius, who co-founded Beautisol (http://www.beautisol.com), explains: "Since I am originally from South Africa, the Nelson Mandela quote not only inspires me as a person but also as an entrepreneur. It's more than a t-shirt for me, it's the message I want to portray."
"With the world being in a state of flux in so many ways, people are soul-searching deeper within to realize what matters, and quotes represent the best of our collective consciousness. They are short & sweet, and uplift us instantly," explains co-founder Chamsi Filali. Given the universal appeal, it is not surprising Quote Couture's Facebook fan page grew tenfold, from 250 to over 2800 fans, in just a few weeks.
Besides inspiring people, the fashion brand also aims to "be the change it wants to see in the world" (a Gandhi quote also available in the current collection). All purchases contribute to empowering low-income African entrepreneurs via microloans made through Team Africa on Kiva.org. Chamsi Filali started the team, and its members (which include Quote Couture) have collectively made over 1,000 loans: http://www.kiva.org/team/africa.
