1945 - 2021

It is with tremendous sadness that we mourn the loss of our beloved founder, Andrea Lee Aranow.

Andrea lived a rich life, influencing and inspiring people all over the world with her intellect, curiosity, creativity, and passion for fashion, textiles, design, and travel. She was many things to many people. She was a daughter, a sister, a mother, a friend. She was a mentor, a muse, a fashion designer, a textile researcher and collector, a businesswoman, and a barrier breaker.

Andrea’s legacy will be carried forward by all of those who she inspired and we deeply appreciate the outpouring of support, remembrances, and tributes for Andrea that we’ve received.

At this moment, we would like to celebrate Andrea’s rich life, achievements, adventures, and honor her incredible legacy.

As a tribute to Andrea, we’ve launched the virtual exhibit celebrating her life in full vibrancy and pattern. This virtual exhibit is a personal exploration of how we mourn, honor, carry forward memories and traditions from those we’ve lost, and make space for new ones.⁠
