Our Values and Sustainability

Study shows that in the 1960”s 95% of our clothes were made in the U.S. Today there’s only 3%. Yet, the retail price has increased by 70%. Most fashion companies including luxury labels shifted their productions to the part of the world where forced labor and child labor are prevalent; 98% of workers do not receive a living wage and systematically building and supporting extreme poverty somewhere in the world.

As an ethical luxury label founded in New York City, we work to create opportunities for economic growth in the apparel industry in New York City. Only work with ethical manufactures which function under fair-labor conditions and providing their workers with benefits.

We are also committed to using environmentally friendly materials whenever possible. We are currently at 38% sustainable with our souring and with a goal to increase that number each season by traveling around the world in search for sustainable material suppliers.

Our mission is to deliver superior quality and ethically-produced products to consumers and returning a share of our profits directly back to communities we source and produce from by working with local charities.

With the attention on corporate social responsibility and ecology, we, as new generations in fashion - one of the world’s largest and most polluted industry, has huge potential to be an innovator to lead and push towards more sustainable solutions on a global scale and to keep the beautiful world we live in as the way it is for many more generations... We as a creative company, believes using business and creativity as a force for good, is why we do what we do.
