California native, designer Amber Farr launched her clothing line, Flynn Skye, just three years ago. With a drive to create a brand that makes people feel good, this Venice based beauty brings her talent and passion for fashion to the forefront with inspiring collections that embody an exquisite combination of beach meets city.
This inspired brand, named after her daughter, has the same appeal, versatility and free-spirited vibe that entice most people to Southern California. As a local entrepreneur, Amber first got her start in the fashion industry when she opened up a retail store in Santa Monica back in 2001 called, Blonde. Creating a “fashion experience” for her customers has always been a priority and her fierce drive for success eventually led to her being approached by Planet Blue founder, Ling-Su Chinn, and being asked to create and launch the now successful label, Blu Moon.
Farr’s success did not stop there. Flynn Skye continues to blossom into a thriving business while delivering swoon-worthy collections that quickly become must-haves for every girl’s closet. Now with 66 sewers, in addition to being online, Flynn Skye is being carried in over 350 stores nationwide.
Famous for their unique floral prints, collections include one-of-a-kind maxi dresses, rompers, and wide-leg jumpsuits that exemplify the beauty of a true a bohemian, vintage-inspired feel. The Pre-Spring launch for the label kicks off this month and with it you’ll find everything you’ll need from basics to tees, to V-necks to blazers. Whether you’re looking for solids or prints, all sets are interchangeable with perfect complimentary colors and are ideal for traveling anywhere.
Amber’s efforts don’t stop with fashion. Her belief that you can do anything, and do it in a kind way, has led her to being a part of some pretty extraordinary charities. She’s currently on the board of a non-profit organization called “Cozy Courage” which dedicates its time and resources to veterans. Amber has also done great work with the “The Young and Brave Foundation”- an organization dedicated to the young and the brave who are battling cancer. On top of that, if you follow her on Instagram, she does cool giveaways where if you see something you like (or you think a friend would like) tag away – and you may just be surprised with a pretty awesome gift.
This incredibly talented and hard-working woman has learned through experience just what it takes to build a brand, make it affordable and keep it expanding with new and exciting looks. Amber’s belief – “Do you. Trends are always changing and every trend is not for every person. Figure out who you are and be you.”
Flynn Skye’s 2016 Pre-Spring/Resort Collection launches next Monday, Jan. 25. You can find Amber’s latest on the Flynn Skye website as well as other online options like Shopbop and REVOLVEclothing.
