Quality over Quantity

AUDRA is made in NYC at women-owned factories, produced in limited quantities and on-demand manufacturing practices, maintaining our sustainability commitments for a better future. This allows us to deliver limited runs of high quality, thoughtful clothing. 


We intentionally keep our customer at the forefront of our minds in all we do. We create effortless, alluring clothing meant to grow with you, balancing fashion and function for your dynamic lifestyle.


We’re redefining luxury by taking the traditional mark-up and turning it on its head. We’re delivering unrivaled, end-to-end quality and service, while exclusively selling directly to you
