M O N A is a woman-run, independent brand created by Founder & Creative Director, Yvette Garcia. Born and raised in Santa Monica, Yvette embarked on this labor of love to assuage her desire for everyday yet sophisticated pieces that could stand both the testament of time and perpetual open-ended trips traveling. Yvette thoughtfully designs her slow fashion collections inspired by her dichotomous cravings for countryside living and L.A influence. Her designs are motivated by her imagination of making every woman feel their best, even it's just for themselves.
Each piece is designed to stand alone, as opposed to collections, so that sustainability and timelessness remains at her core.
From the design to the launch of a product, she maintains close relationships with everyone in the manufacturing and production processes. All of her pieces are created by hand in Los Angeles, with extremely special fabrics so that every piece can be something that's endlessly appreciated.
