About Faubourg

WHO WE ARE

FAUBOURG [fo-boor] is a style and lifestyle destination for the conscious modern woman. We bring you sustainably made clothing and accessories from the most covetable and innovative ethical designers, so your style and values no longer collide.  Our edit is intended to let you build a fashion-forward seasonless wardrobe around your personal style, not trends.

We are headquartered in Brooklyn with a team in Paris and Los Angeles.

WHY THE NAME "FAUBOURG"?

We set out to build a company that redefines luxury in a more conscious, sustainable way.  Our name is inspired by the Parisian  faubourg, the outskirts that became the heart of town, the underground culture that grew into the mainstream. Our platform brings a radical new awareness to fashion, where respect and consciousness are no longer marginal considerations but instead central to everything we do. 

OUR VALUES

We believe that what we wear is a reflection of who we are – our personality and values.  With every purchase, we are not only casting a vote for the world we want to live in, we are also telling the world who we are.  Making ethical choices should be easier and not require that we sacrifice personal style.  That's why we make it our mission to help you  build a sustainable wardrobe that goes beyond basics, effortlessly.

We believe in the ‘buy less buy better’ philosophy and will always favor quality over quantity.  Each piece you discover on FAUBOURG meets the highest standards of quality construction, materials, and sophisticated design.  Think small batch handmade items, organic fabrics, and eco-friendly processes. 
 
We believe in craftsmanship and in the creative power of artisans, especially women artisans, in developing countries. We celebrate true collaborations between brands and handworkers around the world as a major contributor to the preservation of local traditions and to the well-being of artisans and their families.  Our brands have answered the question #whomademyclothes, treat their workers fairly, and strive to minimize their impact on the planet.  

ABOUT OUR FOUNDER 

Born in France and of West African descent, Priscilla Debar lived in Paris before moving to New York to pursue a career in law. Hailing from a family of women entrepreneurs and creatives, she developed early on a passion for fashion, art and entrepreneurship. 

A conscious awakening, the realization that we must take full responsibility for our own well-being  - from what we eat to what we wear - and the experience of motherhood led her to reconsider her lifestyle choices and adopt sustainability and mindfulness as guiding principles. A believer in the power of bringing people together, Priscilla's life has been about travels, learning and sharing cultures. She sees fashion as a platform for positive change and inclusion, and advocates for social responsibility and women empowerment.

Drawing from African traditions of craftsmanship and spirituality, French chic and New York's urban spirit, she launched FAUBOURG in 2017 with a style that is soulful, confident and timeless, to be a source of inspiration for the growing community of conscious fashion lovers around the world.

Join us in the movement toward a new, conscious luxury.
