Founder's Story

Hi, I'm Bianca Castillo, a 22-year-old founder of Elègancecoz. I am passionate about bringing affordable, casual, and elegant clothing to petite women of all body types.

Why am I creating fashion for petite women? I’ve always struggled to find clothing that fits well—it's either too long, too big, or the quality isn’t great. Moreover, I could never find petite clothing with an elegant approach. When I was a teen in high school, I would see girls my age showing a lot of cleavage, wearing crop tops, and booty shorts. Instantly, I knew that wasn't how I wanted to dress. I was never a fan of showing too much skin. Despite this, I felt compelled to follow the latest trends, even though deep down, I felt uncomfortable.

forward to my 20s, I realized that the style I've always loved is elegant fashion. When people see elegant or classy clothing, they often think it’s an older fashion style, but I believe elegance is for all ages! It’s sophisticated, clean, chic, and classy. I feel myself radiate when I dress like this—it brings me joy and makes me feel happy and confident, whether I’m going out to buy flowers, groceries, or having brunch with friends. I absolutely believe elegance is a confidence booster!

 I want to share this joy and happiness with all my petite girls who struggle with finding the right clothes. My goal is to eliminate all the challenges petites face, and I don’t want any girl to feel pressured to dress a certain way just because others their age are doing it. Clothing that instantly makes you happy is meant for you!

Fashion is beautiful, and so are you. Inspired by the soft girl era and elegance, I aim to redefine petite fashion by bringing sustainability, perfectly fitted clothing of exceptional quality to you. I design casual elegant clothing: Casual to provide comfort and versatility for any occasion, and elegant for chic, beauty, flattery, and sophistication. My goal is to eliminate petite struggles and costly tailoring while fostering a community filled with positivity, empowerment, and inclusivity. I aspire to be your one-stop destination for petite fashion. Ultimately, I aim to build a fashion empire that serves as a retreat for all women, focused on happiness and crafted with passion to help others.

Additionally, I'm committed to making a positive impact on our planet by donating 1% of my sales to 'The Ocean Cleanup,' safeguarding marine life and preserving ecosystems for a cleaner future. We hope you love our journey and clothing, as we are a slow fashion brand. We genuinely appreciate your patience and, with the same love and passion, together we’re creating a beautiful community. Petite fashion just got a whole lot more exciting! This is the classy way.
