ABOUT WORKDAY WEAR
Workday Wear is a collaborative creative studio founded in Olivebridge, NY in 2016. Their work is based on the values they hold dear in everyday life: a love of essential things, elegant utilitarianism, and kindness. Their ambition is to produce timeless, functional workday wear that serves a purpose, is community focused, carries a story and is Handmade in New York’s Hudson Valley.
Inspired by the strong, hard-working people who settled their rugged and inspirational community sparked the theme for this collection. This was the uniform worn by their people: local church ladies working to feed a family in need, an artist out in a bucolic field grabbing the last bit of brilliant light, a farm worker pulling in a load of freshly dug potatoes, a shopkeeper sweeping the sidewalk in front of their store, the women who joined the Women’s Land Army during WWII and plowed, planted, and harvested the nations crop. These are the true heroes who inspire their work.
Founder and Creative Director Sarah Stitham is a self-proclaimed late bloomer and didn’t do much for the first 36 years of her life. However, in the past two decades or so she managed to earn a few degrees, created and sold two successful businesses, worked with legendary people, contributed to a half dozen books and was featured in forty-four regional and national publications.
Today Sarah is doing only what she loves to do. She design seasonless, timeless, versatile clothing for women who, like herself, have extraordinary, ordinary lives.
