Valerie Werner Longo is a fashion designer in the LA area. Her latest project, the Love Faustine Collection, gives otherwise trash-ready garments a second, meaningful life.
You can check out the entire collection here.
“The Choose Love Tee was made with the sole purpose to give back to organizations being defunded by the current administration so with each tee sold I give 10% to Planned Parenthood.”
Each piece in the Love Faustine Collection is hand made in California, using only vintage garments and dead stock fabrics left over from the fashion industry.
Our goal is in minimizing our environmental waste by extending the life cycle of each pre-existing survivor.
We believe in savoring the garments worth living a little longer, holding onto a little tighter and loving a little more.
The Love Faustine collection is presented with a very minimal addition to the world’s carbon foot print.
“The Jumpsuit, full pants, bra top and caftan are all original designs – I do all the original patterns and hand cut each in my home studio. Then I have these two ladies I found locally to sew them for me. All are made from dead stock fabrics left over from the fashion industry or found vintage fabrics. So all are available in limited quantities.
The solid Blue, Golden Yellow and Dusty pink dresses are all pre 1900 victorian dresses and chemises that i source then hand dye. Most are from France.”
All of our items are available in limited quantities and many are one-of-a-kind.
