Fashion accessories for the trendy fashionista! Designs appropriate for any occasion at incredible prices. Hand selected fashion items made with the best fabrics and materials from around the world. All items are under $50 and you can’t beat that!
Q. What inspired you to start your business?
I have worked for some of the world’s top luxury designers and although the items are beautiful the prices were totally out of my range. I took the time to study fabrics and the construction of different garments and researched other companies and designers that offer the same quality at a lower price point. After years of research I decided that I wanted to start a business that offered beautiful items that are affordable to anyone, and this is how For The Fab was started. Women love to look and feel amazing so why not provide that at a price that is within their means? I’m proud of what I have created and the feedback has been incredible and that translate success to me.
Q. Tell us in one sentence why your customers love your business.
The quality of the garments and materials is the same of a luxury brand but up to 75% lower in price.
