This and all Victoria Road collections are designed, developed, sourced and produced at dedicated ethically-run studios in Lahore, Pakistan, where they collaborate with talented emerging women designers and skilled craftsmen to create luxury apparel with a global story. Doing so allows them to put the focus back on local talent and quality handiwork.
“Barneys New York has always been known as the premier destination for children’s fashion, and we are very honored to be able to share our unique designs through their platform,” said Shannon Grewer, Co-Founder and CEO of Victoria Road. “By doing so, we are able to tell a story through our designs and use fashion as a stepping stone to a positive cross-cultural dialogue.”
Victoria Road is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, which ensures that workshop employees are treated fairly and paid living wages. Their facility in Lahore also adheres to a zero-waste policy, which means that they source and produce in small runs and find uses for all fabric remnants. Victoria Road has created a globally accessible fashion, inspired by the cultural aesthetic and craft, while respecting the people and environment, of where its clothes are made.
The collection ranges in price from $65 - $172 and can be found exclusively at Barneys New York’s Madison Avenue flagship store and online at www.barneys.com.
