What is DREAM CLOTHING?
DREAM CLOTHING is a socially conscious, unisex, Cali-style fashion brand with a purpose!
Based in Los Angeles, our purpose is to raise awareness of mental health issues through our casual, colorful, fun-to-wear clothing and accessories, designed to help you feel comfortable in your own skin; both inside and out. We DREAM in all colors, all shapes, and all sizes and we’ve created collections that encourage you to wear your heart (and dreams) on your sleeve!
Every Great Dream Begins with a Dreamer
“A dream is defined as a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal. Awake or asleep, our dreams are what carry us. Without our imaginations and aspirations, we will never aspire to achieve greatness.”
Our dreams make us who we are; they drive us to be who we want to be. Our brand encourages you to live your own authentic dreams and live the life you want to live. Without dreams, we stop hoping. Without hope, we stop living.
Through our designs and initiatives, our dream is to help those suffering from anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses, and those affected by the disease of addiction. We hope to inspire you to share our dream; because together, we can save lives.
What Makes us DREAM?
In the US, almost 50% of all adults will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime. Millions are affected each year with debilitating anxiety disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Addiction, Eating Disorders, and Depression. And though not contagious, the ripple effects of mental illness spread through families, touching everyone in its wake.
It’s important to understand the numbers because it shows that if you, or someone you love, are affected by the disease, you are not alone.
It’s time to bring mental illness out of the shadows and into the light; to erase the stigma and raise awareness & advocate for increased understanding and health care.
Bringing Our DREAMs to Life
Just like you, every one of our designs has its own story to tell and our dream is to help you share your story too. Our focus is simple - we never want you to stop dreaming. Our clothing line is an expression of the way we truly feel. Our dream is to continue raising mental health awareness through our designs and provide funding to our mental health partners.
To achieve this goal, D.R.E.A.M. clothing donates 10% of all net sales to our non-profit partners to help spread awareness and help fund research for mental illnesses. Our current partners are the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Rise Above the Disorder (RAD). We are always looking for new partners to expand our reach to help fund mental illness research and spread Mental Health Awareness in different areas of the world.
