Jews of Philly Fashion: Julie’s Bottega

It’s the newest edition of Jews of Philly Fashion, introducing you to the Chosen few who dress our city. They might mix wool and linen, but they’ve got some strong opinions on mixing stripes with florals. In this space, we’ll talk to designers, sellers, buyers, influencers, models and more. This week, we spoke to Julie Margasak and Julie Ann Lewenthal.

Julie’s Bottega, a women’s clothing boutique celebrating its 40th anniversary on April 1, could just as well be called Julies’ Bottega — after all, everyone who walks in the door has been served Julie Margasak, 80, and Julie Ann Lewenthal, 50, for decades.

The mother-daughter duo, according to Margasak, are both “in it for the same reasons: to accommodate customers, to dress people up, make them leave the store looking fabulous, go to a party, and everybody says how great they look, and where did you get the clothes? Julie’s Bottega.”

Margasak, who studied marketing and merchandising at Temple University, opened Julie’s Bottega on April 1, 1980, after spending the early part of her career working for Macy’s and Wanamaker’s, a stint that involved traveling the world as a foreign buyer.

The first iteration of the store was a tiny boutique at 191 Presidential Blvd. in Bala Cynwyd, which quickly became too small; soon, she moved to a significantly larger space down the road. All the while, her daughter was spending Saturdays helping her mother at the store.

Lewenthal has spent 25 years working full-time alongside her mother, as they moved from the larger space to their current location on Montgomery Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, where they’ve been since the early ’90s.

So, what’s it like, working with your mother every day?

“Wonderful,” she said, which made her and her mother laugh. “We have good days and bad days.”

“Moments. Not even days,” Margasak clarified.

Good days, bad days or not, they’ve made it through a lot. Margasak recalls the difficulties for her business after 9/11, and again in the wake of the 2007-2008 market crash. With the coronavirus crisis, the physical store is closed, but Julie’s Bottega will offer clothing at a 20% discount, along with an ad-hoc curbside
delivery system.

“We are at your service during these unprecedented times,” their website reads. After all, when haven’t they been?

What is your favorite piece of clothing?

Lewenthal: A vintage Moschino jacket.

What clothing trend would you like to see make a comeback?

Both: Women dressing up.

And what trend are you content to leave in the past?   

Both: Baggy clothes.

What’s something you can’t believe you used to wear? 

Both: Shoulder pads.

Is there a current fashion trend that you detest?

Both: Ripped jeans.

What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?

Both: “Mommie Dearest”

What item of clothing should more people be wearing?

Both: A great sweater from Autumn Cashmere or Brodie.

What person’s style do you admire?

Both: Michelle Obama.

What talent would you most like to have?

Both: Singing.

What is your most defining characteristic?

Both: Creativity. We love dressing a woman so she can look and feel her best.

Burberry to make healthcare worker masks and gowns

Published

on


Burberry has announced a raft of initiatives designed to support global efforts to combat the outbreak of Covid-19, including the delivery of thousands of surgical masks.

From trench coats to face masks, Burberry is using its Yorkshire factory to product gowns and masks – Burberry

The famous British fashion house said the plan will help meet the most immediate medical and community needs, whilst supporting the development of a long-term solution to the pandemic.

Its trench coat factory in Castleford, Yorkshire has been retooled to make non-surgical gowns and masks for patients. All garments will be subject to approval from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to ensure they meet regulations.

Additionally, Burberry has offered to use its global supply chain network to fast-track the delivery of over 100,000 surgical masks to the NHS, for use by medical staff.

And the company is funding research into a single-dose vaccine developed by the University of Oxford. Due to begin human trials next month, the vaccine is one of several being tested by different companies in the race to find a cure to the health crisis. Burberry said the University of Oxford has one of the world’s best track records in emergency vaccine development, with past success in fighting Ebola and MERS.

Finally, the brand is donating an undisclosed sum to charities dedicated to tackling food poverty across the UK, such as FareShare and The Felix Project. This will support efforts to help those struggling to get food as a result of the outbreak, with community produce hubs, food delivery for children who rely on free school meals and pre-packed food parcels.

Burberry didn’t say how much these initiatives will cost, but in a trading update released on 19 March the luxury firm admitted that the fourth quarter of the year ending 28 March will be significantly impacted by the coronavirus crisis.

Comparable retail sales fell by up to 50% globally during February and early March, and a large portion of the brand’s retail portfolio has had to close in recent weeks, leading to further sales losses. But Burberry’s online store continues to operate as normal and the company is still taking online orders.

Marco Gobbetti, CEO, Burberry said: “In challenging times, we must pull together. The whole team at Burberry is very proud to be able to support those who are working tirelessly to combat Covid-19, whether by treating patients, working to find a vaccine solution or helping provide food supplies to those in need at this time.”

University of Oxford’s head of medical sciences, Professor Gavin Screaton, added: “We are delighted with Burberry’s generous support for the University’s research into a vaccine for COVID-19. Burberry’s gift is an example of forward-thinking corporate philanthropy that complements and bolsters government and other investment in Oxford’s leading global talent in this field. Donations like this have real and rapid impact, allowing us to be agile in our response, to accelerate this time-critical research.”
