Meet Crys Shannon of Algorythm Designs in DTLA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Crys Shannon.

Crys, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Algorythm is a zero manufacturing fashion label that specializes in re-designing existing garments for sustainability. Our main focus is to provide a solution for the over-production of clothing that currently pollutes our planet. As the energies on earth move us closer to the Aquarian Age new ways of production are blooming to relieve our world of waste. Our method to produce clothing with these remedial efforts is our unique contribution to the global movement of sustainable fashion for the enhancement of our future.

Re-designing utilizes garments that never made it to market, such as goods that are left over from an over-production run and liquidated by the original manufacturer. The garments are brand new, unlike up-cycled product, which usually suggests that the garment has been previously worn. By taking dead stock and re-designing it with new trims, details and fabrics we are able to extend the life of a valuable resource that is worn daily by everyone.

Our goal is to create unique fashion designs that stabilize an unpredictable industry for the highest good of all. Algorythm is a systematic approach of combining materials to find an effective method of converting waste into beauty thus amplifying the presence of the divine upon on our earth.

Has it been a smooth road?
There are constant struggles in the creation of any new business and we’ve overcome many obstacles, re-designing our structure and continue to move along the twists and turns to shape our company to be dynamic. We are creating product in a non-conforming fashion so we don’t really have somebody else’s business model to look at. We are creating a new approach to sustainable fashion that we don’t see currently existing in the industry so it’s been challenging to find a way to fit into the market. We also create unisex clothing so it can be difficult when most establishments want men’s or women’s product, one or the other.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Algorythm is a zero manufacturing fashion label that specializes in re-designing existing garments for sustainability. The main focus of this brand is to provide a solution for over-production of clothing that currently pollutes our planet. We have developed a systematic approach of combining materials to find an effective method of converting waste into beauty thus amplifying the presence of the divine upon on our earth.

We believe we have entered a revolution, one where spirituality and goodness will prevail. It is our mission to create a fashion label that will push the leading edge of sustainability for the enhancement of our future in an industry that causes so much waste and pollution. We are most proud that we discovered a way to eliminate garment waste by expressing our pure passion of creativity and design. It’s a win-win scenario, do what you love and do it in a way that promotes consciousness.

What sets us apart from other companies is that we are creating new collections every season but we are utilizing deadstock as our base garments. This means we don’t manufacture new product from raw materials thus adding even more product to the problem. No garments are made from scratch, we do not manufacture anything. We re-design existing garments with new trims, fabrics and details locally in Los Angeles to keep control of our ethical production practices.

We are known for our unisex clothing designs with bold trims and edgy styling. Our products are beautifully crafted with straps, metal, hooks, crystals and anything else we can find to create unique pieces.

We are excited to be featured in the upcoming RAW Fashion Show Sept. 19th in DTLA, we have been known for our high energy runway sets that includes choreography. 

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I think LA is the perfect location for a business like mine, it’s actually why I moved here from Denver, CO. All the options for sourcing are here in LA, you can get your hands on anything you need and maybe if you’re lucky you’ll stumble across an idea and all the resources needed to create a new leading edge product.
