The new advanced contemporary ALLEN SCHWARTZ collection launched in 2017. The brand offers timeless silhouettes for all occasions, with vintage influence complemented by modern fabrics and textures. The ALLEN SCHWARTZ woman has an inherent appreciation for design in all aspects of her lifestyle - our clothing helps to enhance this special piece of her being, and she knows it.

At ALLEN SCHWARTZ, we want to continue to grow with the Slow Fashion Movement and move towards more recycled, sustainable options in our designs. We act responsibly and are committed to choosing the better alternative whenever possible.

All of our clothing is designed and made in our downtown Los Angeles showroom. By conceptualizing all of our pieces in-house, we are able to maintain slower production schedules, ethical working standards, and fair wages for our entire staff. Additionally, we work with many local manufacturers and small businesses. By partnering with mills that share our same beliefs, we are able to work towards a more sustainable future.

Every piece from the ALLEN SCHWARTZ collection is conceptualized and manufactured in Downtown Los Angeles. Our production is set in small batches, making each item a bit exclusive while using scarcity to create demand and prevent waste. We will continue to uphold high ethical and sustainable standards while constantly working to improve internal practices.

Our first step to improve our sustainable efforts is producing all of our satins with a new innovative upcycled fabric. All of our satin pieces starting in 2020 will be made from this fabric, which is repurposed from recycled plastic bottles from a Japanese mill. We have researched this fabric very carefully to ensure that the clothing maintains its integrity with the same touch, feel, and look as our original satin. Our team is constantly working to find new sources and fabrics that are made from recycled materials to reduce our overall impact in fashion, like our 100% recycled poly chiffon. As we grow, we know that we will have to face new challenges, but we will remain devoted to making a change in the way we create and manufacture our clothing. We hope you will join us in the cause.

Additionally, we have just developed one of our most popular satin fabrics into a new sustainable version. This fabric is created using yarn made from plastic bottles found throughout Japan. This is just another step toward maintaining high ethical standards, both in our production process and in our fabric selection.
