Mother Earth is a powerful teacher. We look to her for guidance, celebrating her beauty and resilience throughout our entire process. From the start, we've aimed to tread lightly, to produce sustainably, and to Honor Mother Earth with every decision we make. We use both leftover fabric (called “deadstock”) and new, organic cotton to create each of our designs. We have production centers in Los Angeles and India, where we are working toward creating a fully regenerative fibershed. Our talented team puts care and intention into each seam they sew. Speed is the last thing on their minds; we ask them to take a deep breath, slow down and create something they are proud of.

The embroidered cotton gauze (eco dry cleaning recommended) we used is rescued deadstock fabric that was left over from a larger fashion house. By using deadstock fabric we save hundreds of thousands of gallons of water annually and keep the planet clean.

Araceli | Jillian Tawny

“It was a little bit of a struggle in the beginning, to switch from sewing men’s clothing to doing dresses now, but I feel more confident with my abilities as time goes on.”
With twenty years in the fashion industry, Araceli is basically a pro sewer, but she hadn’t really worked on dresses until she came to Christy Dawn late 2017. In the beginning, she struggled with getting the hang of it, and she worried that her production wasn’t fast enough. She says the one thing she’s learned working for Christy Dawn is that it’s really about quality over quantity, and good results are the most important thing to focus on. Once she really understood that value, she says she was able to concentrate more on not rushing through a piece.
