Mestiza

Introducing our currently featured brand.

  • Mestiza's Story

    When Alessandra Perez-Rubio & Louisa Rechter Takacs first met as college students, they immediately bonded over their shared ties to the Philippines. Unbeknownst to them, the hazy memories of their inspirational and fashionable foremothers would eventually serve as the cornerstone of their brand. Mestiza New York creates iconic styles for iconic people – timeless, polished and dazzling as the women who wear them.

    Like the garments worn by their foremothers, we produce thoughtful designs in limited quantities. Our products are crafted with the highest of quality to stand the test of time, adding polish and a bit of magic to your look, no matter the occasion.

    It’s widely known that the fashion industry is harmful to the environment, especially with the rise of fast-fashion which is quickly filling up our landfills. Our solution is to make well-made, classic silhouettes you can wear time and time again.

    Keepsakes designed to be passed down with your own legacy.

  • a note from the founders

    Fully owned and operated by two women, Mestiza understands the challenges faced by women in business. Since inception, we have aimed to help women stand out. We do this through our unique, limited edition designs, our yearly partnerships the women of the Habi Philippine Textile Council, our Tastemaker Series, and through our Heirloom Project, where our excess inventory is gifted to deserving high school seniors across the United States.
