Dame is a female-founded collection of timeliness wardrobe essentials and vintage pieces that are sustainably created in downtown Los Angeles. The inspiration behind Dame is attributed to helping shoppers build a more sustainable and eco-friendly closet. Dame retrieves residual fabrics leftover from fashion houses and repurposes leftover silk straps and deadstock to create their elevated pieces. On International Women’s Day (March 8th), Dame will donate 10% of all sales made that day to the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles.
