THE FOUNDERS

Apparis is a New York City based faux fur label with a French attitude.

Immersed in the fashion industry from a young age, the design duo brought with them a wealth of knowledge and experience to their label. Amelie grew up spending much of her time in her grandfather’s vintage shop and father’s shoe store. Her early introduction to business then encouraged her to move to the U.S. Where she attended college at Michigan State and after made NYC her home base. Brick began her career in fashion working with Hermès, followed by Coach, Chanel, and later Louis Vuitton where she met Lauren Nouchi; her future business partner and co-founder of Apparis.

Born in the south of France, Lauren was also raised in a fashion retail environment from a young age. At 17 Nouchi moved to Boston where she pursued studies in global business and marketing. Among finishing her degree Nouchi began working with Louis Vuitton where she became well-versed in quality craftsmanship and brand storytelling.

Reconnecting with Brick on holiday in France, the two decided to merge forces. Their strong background and agreement that top quality and approachable price point can coexist without compromising fit, style, and the world’s furry friends is the driving fource behind the chicest and most affordable faux’s made by yours truly here at Apparis.

OUR ETHICS

OUR ETHICS

From the beginning we knew that we didn’t need to hurt animals to make beautiful clothes. We feel strongly that fashion and animal cruelty have no place belonging in the same industry, which is why we use 100% vegan products to create our faux furs. Luckily, with today’s technologies we are granted the tools that allow us to be fashionable while also making ethical choices. No compromises necessary.

So how exactly do we go about making beautiful garments while still being socially and ethically concious? We take time and consideration among choosing the fabrics we source, and the factories in which our products are produced by sourcing from french textile manufacturers, and making sure that our factories follow industry standards. With these priorities in mind we searched for a workshop to call our home, and found our new family.
