Silk and Lace Essentials / Direct-to-Consumer / Conscious Commerce
We believe that by taking a “creator-to-closet” approach to fashion that prioritizes quality, sustainability, and the humanity behind clothing, we can change the world for the better. If we can do this while eliminating bloated retail costs for customers, then we can create a win/win opportunity that will forever revolutionize the fashion industry. By designing non-disposable, core-of-your closet silk and lace essentials, we are returning to the industry’s roots of making things that matter, and things that last. By selling these collections directly to customers online, we’ve escaped a model that requires excessive markups to offer revolutionary, affordable pricing year-round – because you shouldn’t have to wait for the things you covet to go on sale, and you shouldn’t have to choose between quality and price.
Our founder and head designer Allison Beal takes an artisanal approach to her creative process. Each piece is designed in-house at StyleSaint’s design studios, manufactured locally in sunny Los Angeles, and shipped directly to you without retail markups.
By focusing on quality over quantity and designing timeless collections that are meant to be worn year-round, we are taking the stance that fashion should be neither “fast” nor disposable.
By partnering with local factories, we are able to create domestic jobs, diminish overseas shipping, and reduce the carbon footprint of our manufacturing process.
