Hey! So as for the questions, first of all how did you guys get into fashion?
we both have loved clothes since we were young, extremely cliche but it’s true. I think it’s kind of funny because I did always love clothes but i thought that was just because i was a girl and my mom was a shopaholic! My mom was different than other moms, she was bold and free from others opinions. She always wore the most astonishing outfits growing up and now that i think about it i definitely got it from her. i always knew I wanted to peruse something with art, i just never knew it was fashion not until I left school at an early age and moved to LA. That was when i really noticed the love I had for fashion. -dani
My parents always let me express myself with how I dressed & at times I looked bizarre but that’s what started it all. My entire life I made it a point to dress according to my mood, so I’d go from dressing very plain one day to dressing extremely funky the next because that’s how I happened to feel that day and that hasn’t changed! Growing up involves so many moods and emotions & to have to pair weird items together and make them look good on top of attempting to make the fit match how I was feeling that day was a challenge I enjoyed everyday. I also just like looking abnormal! Weird is fun! -sara
Have you always been interested in it?
I always LOVED clothes, i loved looking and dressing different from others, for some reason it was very amusing to me. But I never realized that i wanted to actually pursue fashion until I met sara. We both shared a crazy passion for clothes that we always knew we had but never did anything of it. -dani
Yes! I think how you dress says so much about you! At such a young age I would insist on choosing my own outfits. Just like Dani said I never thought I’d do something with fashion as a career but I moved in with Dani and to live with someone whom dressed just as “weird” as I did was the most exciting thing, we both just decided to start Peach Tree one night after talking about how we both really love clothes more than the average human - so far it’s been so fun. -sara
Where do you find a inspiration for your style (particularly the neck tie shirts 😻)?
Well we’ve always loved weird and we love piecing and styling vintage clothing. We wanted to make a piece that allowed woman to wear ties in a fashionable way, keeping in mind that a tie is the most masculine item any man can own. Most woman don’t dare to wear ties since it was already decided that they were made for men. We wanted to take all gender away from this item and make it something anyone could wear. Plus who doesn’t love a tie? There is nothing more elegant than a tie. - dani & sara
And do you have any clothing store recommendations for people with similar taste?
This is a hard question since we don’t necessarily shop from normal stores. The fashion industry is one of the major polluting industries in the world and that is why we have been distancing ourselves from making any purchases in fast fashion. Our favorite place to buy clothes is definitely at the thrift. 98% of both our closets are thrifted. For us there’s nothing better or more fun than shopping for second handed items, there’s so much more variety & you never fail to come across the most unique pieces. We are so happy to see that thrifting has become more normalized, & though there’s still many people that see it in a negative way, there’s nothing negative about shopping from your local thrift store as long as you give back as well. You’re actually helping the planet by doing so. -sara & dani
