WE BELIEVE IN RESPONSIBLE FASHION. We are passionate creators of clothing for the Heroine who wants a wardrobe that is luxurious, sustainable and cruelty-free.
WHAT DOES "RESPONSIBLE FASHION" MEAN AT DELAUNAY?
IT MEANS WE ARE FIERCELY DEVOTED TO CREATING A NEW LUXURY THAT IS SUSTAINABLE, ETHICAL, ZERO-WASTE AND CRUELTY-FREE.
OUR DESIGN PRACTICES:
WE TREAD LIGHTLY ON THE PLANET: We utilize as many sustainable, organic, and low-impact textiles as possible, like G.O.T.S. certified Hemp/Organic Cotton/Wool; and we look for fabrics made with recycled fibers--like recycled polyester--to help divert these materials from landfills.
WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS A ZERO-WASTE MODEL: We make small quantities and keep collections to a carefully edited minimum number of samples; we collect and sort our own "pre-consumer waste" (cutting-floor scraps) for re-use rather than discarding them; and we accent collections with remnant or extra-stock materials.
WE DESIGN FOR A CIRCULAR LIFE-CYLE, TO BE WORN FOR YEARS, TREASURED, AND REUSED: The collection core features fabrics and styles meant to work across multiple seasons, and we are working to develop our end-of-first-use plan for each garment. Plus, our exclusive Upcycled Luxury collection revives vintage apparel to create new treasures each season.
AND WE TAKE SERIOUSLY OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PEOPLE AND ANIMALS: Our pieces are made in the United States by valued craftspeople, and we never use fur, skin, feather or leather in our collection.
We share the details of our design practices because we want the DeLaunay Heroine to feel confident that each style has been created with great care for People, Animals and Planet.
