A Tale of Two Sisters

Not that long ago, there were two sisters, Jocelyn and Joan, who loved fashion.

As the youngest girls of ten children, they had the opportunity to experience, either through their sisters or themselves, many wardrobe frustrations.  Many.

Jocelyn and Joan were always looking for:

  • A sarong that did not need to be tied
  • A wrap for a sleeveless dress so they would not freeze
  • The missing something that satisfied multiple fashion needs

They constantly asked each other:  “Why can’t we find something like that?  Why isn’t something like this made?”

And, because the sisters never found the answers in the stores they shopped – their frustration grew.  Necessity, the Mother of Invention, inspired the sisters to create the solution and thus, ARMigami was designed!
