Christy Dawn is committed to practices that honor Mother Earth and all her people. We are all related, each of us interconnected parts of a greater whole. We aim to live and work in harmony with nature, so that all may benefit. Our prayer is that our practices and products inspire others to remember and celebrate their innate connection with one another, and with the natural world. Since day one, we’ve been a “sustainable” clothing company. But sustaining our current relationship with Mother Earth simply is not enough. Our future depends on regenerative practices that go beyond sustainability to actively heal both Mother Earth and ourselves. Through creating intimate connections with the communities and ecosystems that support us, we can support them. Together, we regenerate.
We forge mutually beneficial relationships with all of the people and ecosystems we work with, from the farm and weavers in India to dressmakers and photographers in Los Angeles. We strongly believe in the power of reciprocity and view ourselves as part of a larger web that we all rely on. Every member of the community making our dresses is essential, and we honor their contribution through long-term commitments. We are excited to share our new initiative in regenerative cotton farming — it is the first step in our journey to become a Farm-to-Closet company!
Together with Oshadi Collective, a community of traditional farmers and craftspeople in southern India, we are working to nourish a depleted plot of land back to health, sowing and cultivating our own cotton with regenerative techniques that honor Mother Earth.We have gathered the most talented dressmakers in LA and use construction methods that are designed to last. We spare no expense in our production process, electing for techniques that take more time but produce a higher quality product. As we expand production to India with the Farm-to-Closet initiative, we will continue to value our high-quality standards.
Timeless Designs: We have an understated timeless aesthetic, designing pieces with classic silhouettes. We don’t design with trends in mind, but rather create pieces that serve as staples for decades to come.
