One of the things I love about living in Los Angeles is that so many great brands are based here. Recently, I’ve started to look into shopping more from those brands because I definitely believe in supporting local businesses. Plus a lot of these brands are using sustainable practices. Here’s a look at some of my favorite LA based fashion brands!
Moon River is inspired by the song of the same name from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and the designs evoke a natural, feminine aesthetic with vintage touches. Everything is designed in the Fashion District of LA! I recently bought this dress and I’m in love! Make sure you stop by here tomorrow to see how I styled it! You can also find Moon River pieces at Nordstrom and ASOS!
Formally known as ACHRO, MIJEONG PARK has a collection full of sophisticated, minimal designs. Everything is designed in the Arts District of LA. I actually had the opportunity to meet the team a couple of months ago and style a few pieces. Everyone is super sweet and I loved that the pieces also worked for my pregnant belly (gotta love the oversized look!). Check out my posts here and here.
All the cool girls of LA wear Reformation! This is a brand that definitely has more national attention. Reformation is known for it’s edgy yet feminine designs that are made out of sustainable materials. Most of the collection is made in downtown LA and everything else is made by manufacturing partners that use sustainable methods and materials. I love their tagline: “Being naked is the #1 most sustainable option. We’re #2”.
STAUD is a vintage inspired brand that focuses on simple, feminine designs. The co-founder, Sarah Staudinger, was the former Fashion Director at Reformation who decided to launch her own brand in 2015. I’m absolutely dying over this bucket bag! And everything is designed and made in Los Angeles!
Have you shopped at any of these brands? Which ones are your favorite?
