Back Beat Rags // Made In LA

Back Beat Rags, @backbeatrags, is a 100% California born & raised lifestyle brand created by Isadora Alvarez.

What started as a shop specializing in vintage tees soon transitioned into cut-above fashion basics. That means they focus on the usual suspects like easy, wearable tees, sweatshirts, and dresses infused with vintage-inspired details. Everything is made in Los Angeles with locally knitted fabric and by small, family owned businesses, supporting local craftsmanship and jobs. The best part? The price-point is super accessible so that every last one of you can afford their dope clothes.

About Sustainable Fashion

This event is all about the growing sustainable fashion movement, where clothes that look good, feel good and do good for people + planet are your way to vote with your dollars. So what’s the story? The planet is on fucking fire (thanks Bill Nye) and a big culprit is the global fashion industry. Women’s rights are recessing, and in fashion factories the majority, we’re talking 80% majority, of makers are women. Buying and wearing clothes that are made responsibly reduce environmental damage and support jobs with dignity. Hard to believe, but it really is that simple. 🙂 You can learn more about the activism behind sustainable fashion with the non-profit Remake, @remakeourworld who provides deep dive stories and hard facts behind our fashun.
