our mission

Our Values

We aim to foster a sense of community in the design world through building a lasting network of designers that align with our core values.

exemplary

Attention to craftsmanship, artistry, and detail; beautifully made and intentionally thought out.

AUTHENTIC

Creating from one's purest, most representative self. Highlighting narrative and intention behind each piece and how that relates to the individual creating the works and their personal relationships, histories, and stories.

UNORTHODOX

Working outside of the norms - materially or structurally. Interesting, surprising, and nontraditional collections.

Inclusive

Work that highlights diverse making practices and narratives that may often be overlooked by a western fashion industry. Work that highlights social awareness and offers support in those areas.

‍RESPONSIBLE

Collections that give commentary on and challenge the current social, political, and artistic zeitgeist.

CONSCIOUS

Work that takes into consideration the environmental impacts of fashion on the world; highlights sustainable manufacturing decisions when choosing materials, utilizing ethical labor, slow-making processes, long lasting garments, and circular fashion.
