YSTR – Los Angeles

Think back to what you’ve been doing the past two days. For ethical fashion brand YSTR, that’s about all it takes to cut, sew, detail and quality check a piece of custom clothing for their modernized vintage collection of women’s clothes.

YSTR has taken a conscious approach to their label by making cut-to-order garments, which means a lower production cost and less waste to the environment. Each one of their beautiful garments is “inspired by iconic, vintage silhouettes that are reimagined to fit and flatter the modern woman.” By taking classic styles, YSTR is able to create a long lasting collection that bucks the “too trendy” looks that won’t last through the next season.

YSTR’s sustainability derives from new technologies like a cut-to-order system that removes any chances of wasted inventory and minimizes their contribution to the fashion industry’s rapidly growing carbon footprint. Their production is also done locally – in fact, all of their clothes are designed and manufactured in-house at their Downtown LA headquarters.

Each garment from YSTR’s collection is created with longevity in mind. That’s why each of their designs is made into classic styles, to get you through years of fashion trends. With staples like dotted blouses and classic jumpsuits, each beautiful piece is versatile enough to work throughout the seasons. 

We absolutely love their transparency – with an eco-friendly approach and lovely garments, YSTR really does combine the best of the past, present, and future. In purchasing one of their pieces, not only are you supporting an ethical company, but you’re making a choice against the unhealthy fast fashion industry. And that, we believe, is the most beautiful decision you can make.
