"I'm mindful of the environment in every step of our design process.  Ultimately, I think my most sustainable approach to design is creating clothes that are transitional from day to night and that people will want to wear again and again. The more you can wear one piece of clothing the less you’ll have to buy and less resources you’ll be consuming."

- Ellice Ruiz, Creative Director

Girlfriend Tested

The Ellice Ruiz collection is Girlfriend Tested™ by a diverse group of friends. Each garment is crowdsourced for thoughtful design features that flatter various body types, transition from day to night, and function for the creative lifestyle.

Made in LA

Our entire collection is designed and made locally in downtown Los Angeles. We've patterned with a female-owned manufacturer who shares our commitment to quality, sustainability, and ethical business practices.

Made to Order

We are a small design studio committed to quality, sustainability, and our clients. Select styles from our first collection will be made to order, especially if made from a deadstock fabric. Since our collection is handmade in LA, we have a 2-week turnaround for some of our pants and specialty dresses.
