Sustainable Fashion Start-Up Disrupts The Fashion Industry

lur™ Apparel Launches “Fashion for Change.” First women's fashion line to knit beauty, sustainability, and social responsibility into each and every piece of clothing. All lur™ products are manufactured from 100% recycled materials.

26 Oct 2012

Disenchanted with the marketplace’s move towards low-quality, high impact, disposable fashion, textile industry veteran Mark Heiman, along with co-founder Alan Brown, announced the launch of a new sustainable fashion brand called lur™ apparel

“We believe that for clothing to be truly beautiful, it needs to benefit more than just its wearer. lur™ represents the combination of beauty, sustainability, and social responsibility,” said Heiman.

lur™’s twenty seven current apparel styles have many sustainable features that make them the perfect choice for the socially and environmentally conscious woman. All lur™ products are manufactured from 100% recycled materials. In addition, the company estimates that through their production process, each item of lur™ clothing saves roughly 160 gallons of fresh water from entering the waste stream.

“We call lur™ apparel ‘Fashion for Change’ because we believe it is the first time that care for the planet, fair wages, and modern styling have been united under one brand,” said co-founder Alan Brown.

“Alan and I were inspired to found lur™ by our wives and daughters, our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and all of the women who dedicate themselves each day to work towards a better, more sustainable tomorrow,” said Heiman. “Through lur™ we hope to provide these women with a fashion line that is as inspiring as they are. This line is affordable, durable, and made to match the beauty of those who wear it,” concluded Heiman.

The line is available immediately at www.lurapparel.com and at select boutiques around the country. You may also see the brand's lookbook and press kit.
