Carl Wesley is a Chicago based women's clothing brand and the vision of fashion designer Wes Brazel. Wes came to love fashion, sewing, and design at a young age, growing up in a home with a mother who was an avid seamstress. He first wanted to be a fashion designer after seeing Project Runway at age 13. Currently, he studies fashion design at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
Wes designs garments for a woman who is classy, elegant, and sophisticated (and who never has enough great dresses). He strives to create clothes that make women feel beautiful and confident.
Carl Wesley has two commitments:
- Quality Textiles: All materials are carefully selected by the designer. Great fabric is the foundation of a great garment. Materials are chosen for quality, appearance, and feel.
- Made in the USA: Carl Wesley will always be manufactured in the USA, and in Chicago as much as possible. We think it is unfortunate that nearly all the garment industry has relocated overseas. Most of the cost of creating a garment is in the sewing, and we like to see that money stay local. We believe in spending more to support skilled seamstresses in this country instead of producing our garments abroad.
