made with love, created to inspire, for the dreamers by the dreamers ♡
hi!! my name is janaya and i am the founder and creative director of Arie Elle. the idea behind this brand is a long way coming. i started Arie Elle in june of 2020 during quarantine. this led me to my passion: sustainable design. i didn't enjoy drop shipping and selling clothes that had zero impact on the world. i wanted to be creative and make something of my own. in 2021, i dropped my first collection. only there was one problem. clothing creates a significant amount of waste and aids in climate change. this bothered me. i didn't want to contribute to this ongoing problem, i actually want to help resolve it. a lot of research was done in order to figure how to make a brand completely eco-conscious. after some time and deliberation, i thought of 3D printing my designs using recyclable filaments to reduce plastic waste.
so, welcome to Arie Elle, a woman and black-owned clothing brand that seeks to redefine the meaning of inspiration as well as bring sustainable and elevated pieces to the closets of dreamers & believers who aspire to be the model in them and inspire those around them.
Arie Elle is an extension of myself, if you can't tell :) so if you ever feeling stuck or in between a rock and a hard place, just known we have all been there. Arie Elle will support every step of the way. above all, our purpose is to inspire.
