We’re celebrating the first birthday of our studio! We’ve grown so much from the one-room storefront building where we used to do all the design, production, sewing, and photo-shoots to now two floors of an eight-story building.
As our brand was growing, we knew it was time to think bigger. We started searching for the perfect location, but we didn’t have to look far. Just three blocks away from our first location, we found it, a big tall 8-story building, and decided this was it. We’re now on the 2nd and 8th floor.
After we moved in, there was no time to get comfortable, and we had to work quickly. Our blueprints were finished, and we started to create our dream studio from the ground up into the brightly lit, open workspace we have and love today. Once our studio was complete, we filled it with our design team, our talented sample sewers, our marketing/creative team, our content stage, and our sewing team directly across the hall. The Lucy Dream was becoming a reality.
Our studio wasn’t our only project; we had another one only six floors below: our cutting room. When anyone walks into this huge loft-like space, you see endless fabrics, tables, samples, and many, many cutting machines where all of our fabric is cut into the right patterns and sent to our sewing teams to create your dream dress.
This building will always be our home away from home, but we cannot forget where we started. Just three blocks down, our shipping space is still up and running, and it’s the last step of production. There, our products are washed, pressed, or steamed, and all threads are double-checked and packaged carefully. And not to mention more of the sewing team!
The Lucy Dream we had six years ago that pushed us to move to the heart of Los Angeles has finally become a reality. We design the dresses, we cut the fabric, we sew the dresses, we shoot the products, and so much more, all in Los Angeles. We never limited ourselves and followed our dream because we knew the sky’s the limit.
