GEORGETTE CRIMSON IS a CONTEMPORARY APPAREL & ACCESSORIES BRAND, founded on the simple belief of creating trend-agnostic, story driven pieces, where our design directives don't change from season to season - we simply add to the story.
At Georgette Crimson we are a collaborative team of artists and entrepreneurs that connect through our shared passions of art, film, music, literature, travel, and design.
Los Angeles native, Tina Reith, developed the concept for Georgette Crimson while living in San Francisco in 2012. Reith began to create and experiment with clothing and accessories as an extension of an ongoing art project, Untitled Mood. Today, Georgette Crimson is now based in nyc, and is both a clothing brand and a channel for artistic experiments and collaborations.
behind the name
georgette is both a name that reith has always loved, and a fabric that is light and playful. crimson is both a color and the latter part of the name from a progressive rock band, called king crimson. reith found it to be a symbol for love - it's passionate, yet brooding, creating a nice tension between the two names.
we believe in achieving sustainability through product longevity and social consciousness. our apparel is created with a combination of environmentally friendly new materials, as well as luxury rePURPOSED fabrications. for our handbags, we use only the finest quality leather, so that each piece will age beautifully, evolving with the wearer over time. all pieces are created with local artisans in the United States.
