How it started
être means "TO BE" | "BEING"
Starting back in 2015, founder of être-la, Mariam Anna Barska, had a vision of creating a brand for women with a single aesthetic. Using of nature powered materials and creating sustainable products that offer sensorial moments that encourage and enhance wellness. Based in Los Angeles, the brand surrounds the appeal of a modern uniform through clean cut design and meticulous craftsmanship. Inspired by women’s lives and needs, the ambition is to define a dress code and wardrobe that backs their purpose of unique but wearable.
After spending many years as a TOP fashion designer for well know brands such as Hérve Léger, Guess, Bebe, BCBG, she asked herself: "what to that is comfortable, environmentally conscious that also works for coffee runs, traveling, & all-day wearability?"
