époque évolution

Époque. The moment in time to actively make a difference.

 As Nancy Taylor and Hannah Franco reminisced over a glass of rosé at a rendezvous in Morocco a few years ago, they realized there was a void in the increasing popularity of “sustainable” fashion. For them, époque évolution was the opportunity to embody the lifestyle of environmental consciousness not only through humane sourcing and  manufacturing techniques, but also through their elegantly minimal and simultaneously multifunctional designs. In today’s fast-paced world, women are hindered by the rigid categorization of clothing articles. To remove this obstacle, époque evolution produces functional fashion by compiling performance, business professional, and casual apparel into a smaller collection of versatile products. 

Sustainability is not just a label for this company; it is the foundation of its operations and management. Based on the concept of a circular economy, époque évolution sources their fabrics from upstocks, deadstock, organic, and regenerated materials. From pineapple fibers to recycled fishnets, unconventional textiles are the foundation of their garment construction. Conscious of leaving a low carbon-fiber footprint, they implemented a full wastewater management system in their responsibly run factories. Using highly resistant fabrics, they create timeless pieces that challenge the idea of fast fashion. époque garments are durable, built to withstand hundreds of washes, years of use, and activities from office work to yoga. 

 époque évolution creates clothing at the intersection of function and style. The same piece can be worn to a business meeting in the morning, an afternoon workout, and even a night on the town. Their solution was simple: sustainability should be a lifestyle, not just an afterthought.
