Made in the USA / Shopping

Upscale American Quality

In an economy like this one, who isn’t all for supporting American Made products?  Problem is most of us have a hard time finding the products, everywhere you turn you see a “made in another country” label.   Well, if you haven’t already, check out our recent blogs, we found some great designers and products (besides our very own) made right here on American soil!  Although we wish every American company felt this way, we were excited to find out that even some of the bigger designers in fashion still feel the same way as we do. Designers like Jason Wu, Nanette Lepore, A.L.C., J. Brand, William Rast, Hudson and Rag & Bone are just some of many countless advocates for American grown fashion!

Most of these brands are found in major department stores i.e., Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales to name a few. What we love about these brands is that, although they are sold at department stores, they can proudly say, “Made in the USA”.

Andrea Lieberman, the designer behind A.L.C. loves making her clothes in Los Angeles because she can simply walk down the street to ensure that her products are produced at the highest quality. She also loves that she can really get to know the people who are making her clothes! She calls it “romantically old school”.

Many of these designers produce their garments in New York City’s Garment District. The Garment District is supported by many influential fashion leaders and is vital in maintaining a strong American Fashion Industry, as well as keeping New York on top as a world fashion leader.

Whether it’s high-end designers that suit your fancy or you are all about supporting small businesses, I think we can all agree that American-Made products are a great way to go!

Although Brynn isn’t interested in department store placement, looks like she’s in good company!
