Rallier, a New York-based contemporary womenswear label, launched its very first (dresses-only) collection today. The feminine designs—made from a signature cotton fabric in partnership with a leading Japanese fabric mill—are simple and classic with accents of tropical Italian wool throughout.
Just as noteworthy as the chic silhouettes is the brand’s ethos on remedying gender inequality. CEO and founder Olivia Rose Fay experienced a call-to-action after learning that about 43 percent of girls in Kibera, Kenya are likely not in school and that Kenya lacks access to school uniforms. So for every dress sold, Rallier will cover the cost of materials and labor to produce a uniform for local schoolgirls in the region, creating a positive impact on their future employment and educational opportunities.
The dresses—which range in price from $295 to $495—can be shopped online at rallier.com.
