What we do

Creating expertly curated wardrobes

The Service

Faubourg and Figueroa has a unique approach to its clients and a specific vision of the wardrobe building process. The idea is quite simple, and takes part in two phases.

Phase one is the auditing phase, spending time with the client, getting to know who they are and how they spend their time, determining what they want and how they see themselves. Finding out what their life style is and what they would like to look like. We will then determine what percentage of the clients' time is spent in business meetings, shopping, exercising, charity work, leisure etc.

Phase two is the procurement process. Faubourg and Figueroa will set about building a wardrobe look by look for every circumstance divided proportionally by how much time is spent on different activities. For example if 40% of the clients' time is spent in business meetings, 20% on physical activity, and 10% on a yacht etc., the wardrobe will be built to reflect that. The clothing will then be tailored if needed so that each piece fits perfectly.

F&F is an exclusive service for a bespoke clientele and reserves the right to hand pick their clients. More importantly, our client list is strictly confidential. We could be dressing your best friend, but we will never tell.

The Extra

Not only will Faubourg and Figueroa do all of the legwork and the personal shopping, they will create the perfect look for every circumstance. Your personal collection will be delivered with all of the accessories (shoes, handbags, scarves, gloves, jewelry, ties, cuff links, collar stands etc.) and more importantly it will come with a look-book. The look-book will include each look shot on a fit model that corresponds to the clients' body type so that there is a visual memory of how the look is to be worn. The look-book will also contain hair and make-up suggestions as needed and detailed pictures of the accessories. Each look will come with its own garment bag and accompanying accessories to make packing and traveling easier. In that optic each client will have access codes to their own personal portal on our web site so that they can have their look-book at their fingertips and not have to travel with the hard copy.

The name

Faubourg and Figueroa is an odd name, but it represents who we are and what we do. It is the meeting of two worlds, Paris and Los Angeles. Charmaine started her fashion adventure at FIDM Los Angeles that was located at the corner of 7th & Figueroa. After graduation Charmaine headed to Paris and her first job in the fashion industry was on the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. When the concept for the business developed, it was evident that both cities would play a pivotal role. Both cities have their own personal sense of style for completely different reasons and are vital to our business.

It's not fashion It's style.
