We are Kristen and Teresa. We met in New York 10 years ago working in Private Equity investing and managing retailers including Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
Dreamed up in California, we started LAIT because we have seen too much waste in the traditional fashion retailers and frustrated that customers are bearing higher prices because of these waste. We think it’s an absolute waste to make clothes that no one wants and then having to burn them.
We are headquartered in California, and built a team in China working with quality manufacturers directly, cutting out all middlemen. We innovate on a process where we can make designwear in small batch and only make more of what people want, reducing waste and making beautiful things more affordable. ***We ship directly from our California or China warehouses depending on availability of the merchandise. All of our products are designed in-house and made with care by our own team.***
