Le Fash® founder, Arianna Vastino
 

Le Fash® founder Arianna Vastino, was raised in rural New Jersey where she fell in love with horses and equestrian sport at the tender age of 3. After training and competing as a hunter/jumper rider for her entire life, Arianna discovered her affinity for style and design and entered the fashion industry at 15.

Sport Chic with High Fashion Appeal

While discovering the mass appeal of equestrian style in the fashion world, combined with her desire for more stylish riding clothing herself, Arianna was inspired to create a lifestyle clothing brand that would appeal to both high level equestrians and those with a love of equestrian fashion.

While discovering the mass appeal of equestrian style in the fashion world, combined with her desire for more stylish riding clothing herself, Arianna was inspired to create a lifestyle clothing brand that would appeal to both high level equestrians and those with a love of equestrian fashion. In 2011, after 10 years of research and development, Le Fash® was born.

After continuing to advance her skills through education from the world's best design schools, such as Pratt Institute and Istituto Marangoni in Milan, she went on to earn positions that have connected her with some of the industry's top companies such as Bergdorf Goodman and Harper's Bazaar.

For Arianna, creating clothing for Le Fash® is an intimate process. Before deciding on fabrics and details, she thinks about how her design will be used in the show ring and in every day wear; only selecting fabrics that will allow for maximum comfort, breathability, moisture management and design details that allow for a seamless cross over from stable to street. Finally, she incorporates rich plaids, bold color hues and metallic accents for a fashion forward, yet classic equestrian look.
