Garment District + Gramercy Featured in The Beaspora
Like any great stylist, Stacie Mausbach knows her client — and in Stacie’s case, that’s the fashionable women of Omaha. “My customers are modern women who are on the go, so their style reflects that. But at the same time, they want beautiful, high quality items that will look as fresh several seasons from now as they did when they bought them.”
When Stacie first moved back to Omaha from New York in 2006, there weren’t many options to fill this niche. “There was wedding, holiday and…” she says, trailing off into the void.
But Stacie had a plan. Upon arrival, she opened The Garment District in the then-new Shops at Legacy to cater to the West Omaha shopper who was looking for something a little more sophisticated and unique than the mall offerings. Then, in 2013, she opened Gramercy in Countryside Village (now considered Omaha’s Midtown West), which she describes as a small-town in the city.
Since both stores are locally owned, shopping at them can feel like having a personal stylist. “I love getting to know my customers’ individual style and lifestyle and being able to build off of that,” says Stacie. “It’s about adding those few great pieces every season that you’ll wear over and over again.”
While most of the clothing and accessories at Gramercy and Garment District are from New York designers, Stacie has recently created the private label GCY line of casual separates. “It’s all made in the U.S.A., with vegetable dyes and sustainable materials. We also work with localized manufacturing that supports family farms and fair trade,” she says.
Like all the items in her store, it goes back to Stacie’s fashion philosophy: the most important things in a woman’s wardrobe are the ones that are meaningful, that create a memory and that make her feel good.
