Advocating a positive, balanced lifestyle while supporting minorities and animal welfare, All There August is a cruelty-free lifestyle brand, empowering individuals to be balanced and great in all areas of life. At ATA, we created a space to discover philanthropic merchandise that gives back, small batch custom products, charitable events, ethical and secondhand fashion, cruelty-free lifestyle tips, plant-based foods, custom services, animal welfare advocacy, and minority empowerment. All are surrounding a cruelty-free lifestyle.
We exist to create the cruelty-free, sustainable world we want to see by providing you with unique services and products, making veganism and a plant-based lifestyle accessible.
Being an ethical lifestyle brand gives us the opportunity and responsibility to create with a meaning that spreads positivity and awareness. Being All There August doesn't mean you must follow or live a particular lifestyle. Not everyone's passage is the same, and what makes us feel awesome may not make you feel that way. It is more of your authentic journey through life and what makes you balanced and great in positive ways. It's living to the fullest, doing the least harm on your journey, and being conscious about your decisions.
We give back by spaying and neutering community animals, caring for rescue animals, and hosting events that bring awareness to a cruelty-free lifestyle. Furthermore, our designs are all hand-drawn and made by us local creatives, which then helps the creative community thrive. Each purchase supports these initiatives and allows us to donate to rescues and communities in need. We hope you support us by bringing awareness to issues that mean the most to us while doing good along the way.
We thank you for fighting the good fight with us.
ALL THERE AUGUST
I am an ex-fashion professor and college coach from Texas State University, where I received my undergraduate degree in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Business Administration. As a student-athlete with Texas State and completing my undergraduate degree, I coached youth sports, volunteered at local animal shelters, and worked in various internships. With my involvement and accomplishments, I was awarded the title of Texas State Rising Star. Furthermore, that title granted me features in magazines, newspapers, and billboards around Texas. After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided to take my education to the next level and complete a Master's Degree in Fashion Entrepreneurship from the London College of Fashion. Here, I focused on sustainability in fashion and gained experience working in the fashion industry in the US and Europe alongside significant companies and private labels. Additionally, I lived in top fashion cities such as London, Milan, and Paris while also traveling and understanding fashion and culture in centers such as New York, Miami, Stockholm, Mexico, New Delhi, and Shanghai.
As a creative, I have helped develop small and large brands from social media campaigns, in-store visuals, online fundraising, design, and development to content creation.
Furthermore, as a lecturer, I have a strong knowledge of color phycology and branding, fashion history, fashion economics, and event planning, as I was fortunate enough to teach these classes. Additionally, with my theses in my Master's program, design was at the forefront of my work.
In my personal life, as a vegan and animal welfare activist, I bring light to various cruelty-free topics. With my background and an extension of my current work, I coordinate philanthropical events supporting animal shelters and local brands. We have hosted adoption sites at local businesses, affordable pet microchipping, and provided guidance on spaying and neutering. We also host vegan-friendly pop-up shops where we sell curated secondhand fashion and upcycled pieces and guide people to transition into veganism to live healthier lives. I also speak at events such as Vegan Fashion Week, San Antonio Vegfest, and for organizations about my cruelty-free lifestyle spreading awareness towards our cause.
Furthermore, I constantly communicate with local creatives and entrepreneurs for collaborations and community building. My work and travels have granted me the ability to understand better and respect people's behaviors and thoughts from varying perspectives, which has built my character. From business development, hosting, mentoring, managing, teaching, and experience working in a full-time remote position, my life's journey has made me a stronger creative.
