Nasty Gal isn't the only cool-girl fashion destination that's expanding. The e-tailer's recent collaborator and fellow Cali-bred label, Reformation, has just announced a huge move that will keep the bicoastal brand in LA for good.
"Thanks to all you loyal Ref Babes, we outgrew our old spaces and bicoastal lifestyle," Reformation founder and juice lover Yael Aflalo explains on Facebook. "To bring you the best possible clothes, we decided to get everything together under one roof - our web team, design, shipping, studio and most importantly our very own factory. Here, in sunny Los Angeles, we found a home for all of it to exist together."
In addition to including a snap of the massive space (above), Aflalo goes on to reveal that "The Factory will be America's first sustainable sewing factory." Read the full post here to learn more about the space's eco-friendly efforts.
We reached out to Reformation and can confirm that the new factory will be located at 2744 East 11th Street in Boyle Heights. The two-story building covers exactly 27,000 square feet. Not too shabby.
