Favorite March Kickstarter Campaigns

March 2016 Kickstarter Campaigns

I enjoy browsing Kickstarter campaigns and supporting new campaigns that I find interesting. Without further ado I bring you the Top Kickstarter Campaigns in Fashion, Tech, Beauty, Art, and Design - for the month of March.

Top Fashion Kickstarter
COA Studios Watches

COA Studios - Beautiful Minimal Wristwatches for Men and Women

There is something classy about having a beautiful watch compliment an outfit. COA Studios, a British company, has created a line of sophisticated watches they call, "The Minimal Series." The design of these watches caught my eye and I appreciate the attention to detail. The rose gold being my favorite.

Top Tech Kickstarter
Mighty For Music Streaming

Mighty - Streaming Music Without Your Phone

As an avid music streamer on Spotify I'm excited for Mighty. Which brings music streaming to a tiny device comparable to an iPod shuffle. Meaning, you no longer have to lug a smartphone around the gym. If it lives up to expectations, the Mighty will be a game changer in the music industry.

Micro Paintings

Beautiful Unique Micro Paintings

Honestly, the video behind this campaign made me laugh. Jason Luper is a talented Surrealist Landscape Artist, with a wonderful sense of humor. This campaign is to help support his "Micro Paintings" which are 6"x6" oil paintings - tiny but full of life. 

Top Design Kickstarter
dotted animal wall decals

dotted. Artistic Dotted Animals

I'll be honest here, I fell in love with the Flamingo. Which is just one of the dotted animal wall stickers designed by graphic design artist, Yoni Alter. This London based artist created these removable wall decals by using a number of different colored dots. Creating a burst of excitement with an animal hidden inside.

Proud to have pledged to all of these wonderful campaigns! I wish them all the success in hitting their goals.

This company was founded by best friends and entrepreneurs, Evelyn Frison and Yehua Yang - who know what it's like to lead busy lives. Frustrated with the lack of clothing that's versatile, flexible and stylish, they created Pivotte. Allowing you to dress up or down and still feel great. Evelyn and Yehua have extensive experience in the fashion industry with Yehua designing for international brands such as J.Crew and Calvin Klein. 

Pivotte Clothing Desk to Date Cute LA

Pivotte is made with advanced fabrics from Switzerland and Australia for complete comfort. My favorite part of this collection is the technical features - water, stain, wrinkle and odor resistance. And for the ladies that sweat, like me, it includes the added bonus of moisture wicking capabilities. Hell yeah! I've needed this company in my life for that feature alone.

- -  Carte Blanche: Hand-Crafted Dresses Made in NYC - -

Carte Blanche Kickstarter

"The perfect dress is crafted with love and attention," this quote from Monica Noh, founder of Carte Blanche is what drew me to the campaign. Monica is a fashion designer from New York that created Carte Blanche when she saw the need for a change in the fashion industry. Carte Blanche is the first women's brand using crowdsourcing to allow consumers to choose dress styles to go into production. Letting you pick the trends instead of just following them. This process cuts out the middleman offering a line of designer dresses, true to costPerks include: little black dresses, tunics more dresses!

- -  Handwoven Collectibles to Save a Vanishing Culture - -

Angel Chang Handwoven Collectibles

Campaign creator, Atelier Angel Chang wants to save a tradition she believes in. In Southwest China, the Miao and Dong ethnic minority have a strong history of creating intricate fabrics and garments for their family. This process of weaving, producing dyes and cotton is time consuming taking weeks to years to create one garment. Creating these fabrics is a labor of love and a tradition that could vanish in the next 5-10 years. Through this Kickstarter campaign Atelier hopes to raise money to create a local training program that strengthens knowledge of this unique craftsmanship. With the goal of preserving this culture's strong heritage for years to come. Perks include: one of a kind wallets, folios, and pouches handmade from Miao and Dong villagers.
