The Philosophy Behind Are Studio
The word “are” in this designer’s name is as simple as you think: it means “to be.” It’s an existential concept that refers to the way we surround ourselves with objects every day. Are Studio believes that the objects we choose to adorn ourselves with is a part of our lives that we should be conscious of and pay attention to.
Our mission at Auralie aligns beautifully with theirs. Many people treat fashion mindlessly, only as a part of the background of their life. When we dress intentionally, we are more mindful of how we choose to present ourselves and what brands we choose to support.
Conscious Choice in Fashion
We believe in the act of getting dressed as a part of our daily ritual and a conscious choice. By choosing products like Are Studio bags with a sustainable and intentional mission, we contribute to the idea of conscious fashion and help the industry transform.
