We believe that creating a sustainable environment is of the utmost importance in today’s world, and we recognize that true sustainability is only possible in an inclusive and accessible space. Studio Dialectica was born when we realized that cutting edge ideas, innovation, and prominent topics in fashion like sustainability and gender expression are rarely applied to cultural clothing. At Studio Dialectica, we think everyone should be part of the conversation. By creating genderless, seasonless pieces that are made from repurposed and natural fibers, inspired by the world, we’re encouraging all kinds of people to responsibly and authentically be themselves. We want clothing lovers to educate themselves and abandon the fear around appreciating culture.
We know what it’s like to be immersed in a kaleidoscope of culture while trying to separate and sort the pieces - but we don’t believe in separating and sorting the pieces. Our work embraces the intersections of “where we come from” so that we can write our own dialect.
