IRISHLATINA is a sustainable clothing brand offering seasonless pieces made from post-consumer products. Keeping clothing out of landfills by reusing them as fabric, and by producing under a “slow fashion” model, IRISHLATINA’s ethos strives to make a positive impact on the fashion industry. Based between New York and Los Angeles, IRISHLATINA is inspired by a mix of cultures and coasts.
