Actress Angeline Jolie has announced the launch of her very own sustainability-focused fashion studio.
Atelier Jolie is located in the former home and studio of the late painter Jean-Michel Basquiat in Bowery, New York.
Jolie will appear on the November issue of Vogue dressed in items from her fashion studio. The digital cover features the 48-year-old in a swirling strapless-bodice white gown photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
The actress told Vogue that she doesn’t “want to be a big fashion designer, (she wants) to build a house for other people to become that”.
The studio will offer tailoring and upcycling services, a gallery, and a café. Set to open in November, Atelier Jolie will feature colabs with several international role-players in the world of fashion. This includes South African lacemaker Pierre Fouche, London based milliner Justin Smith and American artist Duke Riley.
Two of Jolie’s children will also join her in the venture. Zahara and Pax have been heavily involved in the launch.
“I find it slightly funny that we are involved in fashion – I don’t think any one of us is overly fashionable,” Jolie told Vogue.
“But because we live in our clothes, it is so much a part of who we are, and something that’s important to explore, especially for young people.”
