How it works
We instill ethical and sustainable practices into the sourcing, construction, and distribution of our clothes, which means a bit of a different purchasing experience for you.
We keep the ethos of our tagline: culture, color, conscience intertwined into all that we do. Our collection is designed in New York and Los Angeles by a female lead designer, sewn in NYC by female-owned production facilities, and beaded in India by artisans who are paid fair-trade wages.
All garments produced already have a buyer, reducing both fabric & unsold inventory waste. The final product is a made-to-order, limited edition, ethical & eco garment just for you.
Please Note: All Of Our Items Are Made-To-Order. Please Allow Approximately 2-5 Weeks For Production. Pay In Full Or Pay Over Time With 4 Installments + Zero Interest Using AfterPay.
STEP 1 You see the AA piece of your dreams.
STEP 2 You place your order based on our size chart or by trying the garment on via trunk show/sales rep.
STEP 3 Leave a deposit, or pay for your item in full. You'll pay the remaining balance when your garment is ready.
STEP 4 You patiently wait while we collect orders for our next production cycle.
STEP 5 We alert you that your garment is ready, and and we ship your limited edition, made just for you garment to your doorstep.
The First Step of the Journey
We collect orders over the fashion season, then produce and ship the garments to our customers reducing environmental impact with a streamlined production schedule. It takes approximately 3-6 weeks before your beautiful garment is made just for you.
Investment In Women
We invest in women at every stage of the supply chain. The designers, the New York City-based production facilities, the artisans who do the expert beading in India and Rwanda, and the women who introduce us to their social networks via trunk shows are all women.
We source 90% of our fabrics from living-wage supply chain countries like France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Ghana, Holland, and Italy (as opposed to low wage / low regulation countries). We pay fair-trade wages to female artisans who bead the collections. All garments produced already have a buyer and are made 'just in time' reducing fabric waste and unsold inventory, and minimizing environmental impact.
Limited Edition W/ Easy Pay
Our collections are limited edition.
Our payment structure (25% deposit via AfterPay) is easier on your purse strings, and allows us to pay our female partners up front for their work (we think that’s pretty great!).
A strong direct-to-customer relationship means a stronger relationship with our customer, higher wages along our supply chain, and a higher quality product. It also means we can invest in the female micro-entrepreneurs who sell our product.
We also sell via a network of retailers who we admire and trust. See our stockists here.
We value patience, quality, and ethical practices over instant gratification and unethical production methods. Our customers align with that value proposition, as they know their limited-edition garment is being manufactured especially with them in mind, and will be delivered in time for the season.
