What does Considered Luxury mean to you? Considered luxury to me is the investment in quality, beautiful fashion that has the stamina to be a core part of one’s wardrobe – to be worn over and over.
What was the inspiration behind starting your brand? The inspiration behind my line is two fold – my love of preloved and worn men’s cotton shirts and the surplus inventory crisis in the fashion industry!
