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 singular aesthetic. Based in Los Angeles, the brand surrounds the appeal of a modern uniform through clean cut design, 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 wear at home that also works for coffee runs, traveling, & all-day wearability?"
