Who We Are

A Note from the Founder:

I have loved fashion all my life, but for many years, I didn't know how much environmental impact the fashion industry was doing. I was supporting "fast fashion" companies that contributed so much negative effects to our environment, animals, and the garment workers who made the clothes. After taking some fashion courses at Parsons, School of Design, I became educated on slow and sustainable fashion, and how important it is to support for the well-being and future of our planet. I started Blue Urbane to be a trusted boutique in the sustainable marketplace. By personally handpicking all of the clothing and jewelry items I offer, I'm able to ensure that they are all made with high quality, sustainable materials and connect back to our mission of supporting sustainable and women-run small businesses. -Emily Blumen, Founder & CEO.
