OUR STORY

A64A460F-E278-409D-8C79-2D101178ED88.jpeg

DESIGNER RACHEL WEISBERG STUDIED FINE ART AND FASHION DESIGN WITH AN EMPHASIS ON SUSTAINABILITY AT PARSONS - THE NEW SCHOOL FOR DESIGN IN NYC. THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGN PROGRAM ALLOWED HER TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF DESIGNING, CREATING AND MAKING. 

IN THE SUMMER OF 2012, WEISBERG MOVED HER STUDIO FROM THE LOWER EAST SIDE TO MIAMI AND OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED HER BRAND-- UNDER HER OWN NAME. RACHEL WEISBERG’S COLLECTION INCLUDES CLOTHING, JEWELRY, ACCESSORIES, HOME AND LIFESTYLE PRODUCTS.  HER LOVE FOR THE PROCESS OF CREATING  & MAKING CLOTHING CULTIVATED HER STRONG AWARENESS OF SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICAL PRODUCTION. SHE IS EQUALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT CREATING CLOTHING AND PRODUCTS THAT ARE DESIGNED FOR REAL WOMEN – BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL, INDEPENDENT. COLOR HAS BECOME A RECOGNIZABLE ELEMENT TO HER STYLE – THE NATURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HAND DYE PROCESS CAUSES THE FABRIC TO SLIGHTLY VARY WHICH CREATES AN ASPECT OF INDIVIDUALITY TO EACH DYE LOT.

THE MANY HANDMADE PRACTICES AND A SLOWER APPROACH TO FASHION INSPIRED A NEED FOR A CHANGE OF SCENERY TO ASHEVILLE, NC. IN FEBRUARY OF 2015.
