Dallas designer Tish Cox has sewn ties with a new e-commerce store called The SIL (Stuff I Love).
The new collaboration along with the backstory of Cox’s Cinderella rise in the industry was featured in the December/January issue of Garden & Gun magazine.
Cox was sporting her own creations around her college campus when a friend and fan asked if Cox would make her an evening dress for an event. That event jumpstarted Cox’s design career. Since then she has been recognized by Vogue’s André Leon Talley and designer Zac Posen, notes Garden & Gun. She also has secured retail space inside Cabana, a boutique in Dallas.
“Every piece I have produced has a label with ‘Made in Dallas, Texas’ printed on it.”
Her story doesn’t stop there.
Last year, Cox signed an agreement that let her business expand exponentially and brought her some press. Her luxury clothes are now made by blind and visually impaired sewers at Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind.
“Having my line made here is very important to me,” Cox said in a statement last year about the partnership. “Every piece I have produced has a label with ‘Made in Dallas, Texas’ printed on it.”
Now, that label will be shipped out all over the world thanks to Natalie Bloomingdale’s latest online platform, The SIL. Bloomingdale, a native Texan herself who now lives in Los Angeles, California, created the platform back in August.
“The pieces on The SIL are exclusive to The SIL, meaning you won’t find them anywhere else on the internet.”

“This is the Stuff I Like. If you don’t, it’s ok,” Bloomingdale said on The SIL’s about page.
The SIL allows designers such as Cox to sell their designs internationally.
“The pieces on The SIL are exclusive to The SIL, meaning you won’t find them anywhere else on the internet,” continues The SIL about page.
The online store includes select designs from Cox’s line as well as pieces from 10 other designers. The designer’s clothes are collected and shipped all over the world.
Tish Cox’s collection is available online at TheSIL.com.
