At Arlette Schmitz we believe in the beauty of ethics. Fashion needs to be both beautiful and good. Our collections are conceived and manufactured locally in Belgium. We make sure no one is exploited during the assembly of our garments. Production volumes are kept low to avoid overstock. Fabrics are made in European mills. Most of our suppliers hold environmental certificates. We believe fashion should be slow. Beautiful garments do not lose their allure after one season. We aim to make a sustainable garment that you may enjoy for many years. We believe that a well made garment comes at a price  reflecting respect for all fashion industry workers. Our customers are encouraged to lovingly mend any wear and tear. Or as Vivienne Westwood would have it : “Buy less, choose well, make it last.”
