It’s a boutique where looking good is as important as giving back, and it’s just on the edge of Montrose. Featured in Culturemap, Wardrobe (810 Waugh Dr.) isn’t just another pretty storefront, its wares are sourced from brands that promote sustainability and charity as much as they do fashion.

One example of the many philanthropic-minded labels owner Claire Carmichael-Grant carries in her boutique is LVR Fashion. The company uses organic, sustainable materials in their clothing and donates to non-profits like a Guatemalan wildlife rescue as well as the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles. Additional brands found in Wardrobe contribute to charities like the Wounded Warrior Project while others use reclaimed material like wire and copper reclaimed from discarded electronics to make jewelry.
