Girlfriend Collective believes the best fashion is not about trends – it’s about quality.
By focusing on humane manufacturing, meticulous design, and sustainable materials, they want to create a community of people who care about every step of the process. When they started Girlfriend Collective their first goal was to be as transparent as possible. So many companies tout transparency but only offer flashy headlines instead of substance. they chose every part of their process, from their raw materials to their facilities to their partners, with care. The brand also discovered quickly that high end fit and feel is not a matter of cost, it’s a matter of time. They take the time to make sure every single one of our designs is so beautiful that you won’t cycle through it the next time you look through your closet.
