At The Redoux Parlour, we are pleased to offer the work of over 50 local artists and designers of clothing, jewelry and accessories. We believe that innovation in fashion design comes directly from street fashion and small, boutique manufacturers immersed in their neighborhood culture. Our artists serve their community, taking inspiration from the fashion choices they see around them, and designing clothing and accessories for their friends and social scenes before bringing them to the larger market. Working with these emerging subcultures means that we can bring you the latest trends long before they have saturated mainstream awareness.
Our particular focus is on using recycled materials and found objects, and our artists reflect this aesthetic in the work they show here. At the Redoux Parlour we believe that we can be fashion forward by tuning in with street trends, and that being a responsible consumer means favoring the use of re-purposed materials over pulling from new resources for each production run. We choose artists who share this commitment, and who can demonstrate superior technical skill in both the design and manufacture of their products.
