Green + Socially Responsible Mission
Retrofit Republic is a sustainable fashion styling firm, event design, and vintage retailer with a social impact. We specialize in vintage and recycled clothing and offer styling to individuals, changemakers, and brands.
Our vision is to change the belief that fashion and eco-sustainability are mutually exclusive. We believe social responsibility is necessary for any successful business — not an afterthought. As a values-driven business, Retrofit Republic is committed to impeccable style, sustainability efforts, and initiatives that benefit low-income populations, communities of color, and our LGBTQ family.
Our styling services, event design, and private shopping sessions include customized styling to achieve an unique aesthetic with signature vintage pieces. With an eye for detail, customer service, and quality product selection, our services have been used by entrepreneurs, tech start-up founders, CEOs, politicians, electoral candidates, artists, hip hop emcees, legal advocates, community organizers, students, and others.
Every featured item has been hand selected with an eye for quality, uniqueness, and affordability for our customers. Vintage pieces are our specialty but occasionally, we feature pre-owned, recycled, or refurbished garments and accessories that complement a vintage aesthetic and any wardrobe. Just how no two people are exactly alike, we take great pride that our collection represents a diverse array of lifestyles, looks, and utility.
We support initiatives that promote sustainable fashion, environmental education, and the meaningful and empowering works of communities of color in the green economy. We believe that beauty is all body sizes, forms, skin tones, and gender expressions. Our commitment is to uplift the diverse looks of our communities and promote the incredible aesthetics of people of color and the LGBTQ community.
Retrofit Republic actively works to build a community of activists, creative and critical thinkers, entrepreneurs and small businesses through collaborations that empowers, acknowledges, and uplifts one another in the green economy. As we grow, we continue to donate a portion of our profits to groups that serve under-resourced populations and the environment. To see a list of organizations we have donated to click here.
We pledge to protect our environment by reducing our carbon footprint in three ways, we will:
_support groups that have an environmental and social mission
_recycle or dispose unwanted clothing in a sustainable manner
_source from local independent designers and stores whenever possible
