When I first saw Laura Choi, it was the final day of Burning Man, 2015. Illich and I were wandering out of the deep desert after a long art journey, and a vision of several fashionable women resolved out of the dust, walking towards us. One of these women flagged us down. Turns out Illich...

    Sustainable Cocktail Dresses and Perfect-for-Work Separates

    When I first saw AGAATI's collection of dresses, tops, and bottoms, I got excited. This new entry to the scene, helmed by India-born Saloni Shrestha, is unlike any other sustainable and ethical fashion brands I've seen, with bold, interesting color combinations and kicky, feminine shapes.

    Ikat: Get the Real Thing With MATTER’s Artisan Made Pants

    Sponsored Ikat has become the trend to wear over the past few years. No wonder, it’s a gorgeous pattern that lends itself to so may beautiful applications, from purses to pillows to pants. It always makes me a little peeved, however, when I see an “ikat print” printed on conventional fashion. This is especially on...

    Sustainable Street Style: Winter Whites and Winter Textures

    I was digging through my pants drawer the other day and found these nice white jeans by rag & bone. Usually I would wear them just in the summer, but I’m a big proponent of using as much as your wardrobe as much as possible. And winter whites can be so refreshing! rag & bone...
