Enchant store
Enchant Clothing & Costume was a clothing store owned by Janice L., Emilie Autumn's mother, from 2000 to 2001. Autumn modeled for the clothing line and Enchant C&C was one of her first musical sponsors. 

The website is partially functional at it's live address. A portion of the site can be seen on the Internet Archive, but many of the images were not saved. 

About the Business

The "Products and Services" page listed the following in 2001:

At Enchant, costume designer Jan [redacted] presents her premiere line of top-quality merchandise in both custom and ready-to-wear. We will offer handcrafted jewelry and accessories to complete your fantasy ensemble. We will also be adding a gallery of one-of-a-kind items which will be available for purchase. We will be updating constantly so please bookmark this site.

Two websites served as hosts for Enchant C&C, both with very different designs and product lists (though we count both as one). One is the tripod-hosted site, which seems to be the earliest incarnation (enchant.costume.tripod.com) the hosted a majority of clothing pieces. The second one, http://www.enchantcostume.com, hosted only Ruffs, Cuffs, and Power Cords. The secondary website also published Issues of an online discussion page called "Ruff Times." No Issues (if any were published) have been archived.

The buisness was located out of Malibu, CA, USA.

About the Products

Not much is known about all the products that Enchant C&C sold. Many of the images are lost and some descriptions are not accessable. Here is what can be found.

Power Cords: Hand twisted and dyed tasselled ropes made for wearing as charms attached to the wrist, belt, neck, or anywhere you need a reminder of your inner powers. Power Cords are also made to be used as Ruff Ties. Power Cords come singly or in pairs, the singles measuring 36" each and the pairs measuring 18" each. each hand-crafted cord is infused with particular attributes and associations, designed to be as magical as it is beautiful.

Victorian Corset: Based on Autumn's modeling photos for Enchant C&C, this corset is one design she kept for herself. You can see it in later photos of Emilie out partying in Chicago  with Lady Parasyte and friends, which were once posted in her Journal Entries.

Sponsorship

On a page entitled, "Who is that Model?", Enchant C&C advertised their sponsorship for Emilie Autumn. This text is from a screenshot of the page in early 2001.

Dear visitors to Enchant Clothing & Costume,
We have received so many e-mails asking about our Enchant model that we felt it was time to give you a little official info.
The Enchant model is Emilie Autumn, a young rock singer/songwriter/violinist. She looks so comfortable in these clothes because she wears them all them time - Enchant C & C is one of her sponsors.
Emilie will be releasing an album late in 2000 called, coincidentally, "Enchant" on the Seraph Records label. We strongly encourage you to check out her official label site at www.emilieautumn.com where you can find her bio, faq, photo gallery, and preview songs from the new album. Emilie is expected to make a big splash in 2001, with the release of her CD also marking the release of the first-ever album based mystery puzzle, complete with treasure for the winner. This is an artist you truely don't want to miss.
Get over to www.emilieautumn.com and sign up for her official mailing list, then come back and browse our constantly-updated catalog.
In Beauty,
Enchant

When considering the information the website gave about Enchant, this page had not been updated since Emilie moved onto her own label, Traitor Records. While Enchant was originally intended to be released on Seraph Records, Autumn split with the record label shortly after releasing the Chambermaid EP.

As for their official sponsorship, it is said that Autumn's mother made a number of Autumn's costumes from the Enchant era, when Autumn dressed up as a faerie for her performances.
