GERMAINE BOLDS-LEFTRIDGE, it all began with her love of golf and fashion. She was inspired to design a line of golf wear called 18TH COUTURE. "The 18TH COUTURE collection provides the perfect balance between professional, sporty and seductive, " says Bolds-Leftridge. "As an avid golfer and self proclaimed fashion-aficionado, I always knew women's golf wear had the potential to be versatile and chic." As a savvy businesswoman with years of consumer marketing experience, she tapped into a pool of influential female golfers and fitness gurus to ensure that 18th COUTURE met the demands of women golfers.
WHAT: 18TH COUTURE, created for and by women who want to be taken seriously in the office and on the green, the collection is both sleek and professional while providing a full range of motion with every swing. Forty-one (41) signature pieces make up a one of a kind collection that is high-end yet affordable and complimentary of both the feminine and athletic build. 18TH COUTURE molds a naturally clean aesthetic design into a tailored and eclectic look that is as impressive in the boardroom as it is on the golf course.
THE COLLECTION: 18TH COUTURE features head-turning hats, form flattering skirts and signature tailored pants and tops. The line's trademark piece, a dual-purpose pouch, provides storage and\elegance in the form of a belted bag to house all of your golfing essentials including tees, scorecards, ball and any other must-haves.
WHY: For years, female golfers nationwide have yearned for game-ready attire. The apparel industry provided functionality for the athletic woman but unfortunately, sacrificed style.
