We Exist to Honor Strength and Wisdom.

Mother's Day, 2021 was our opening date, and this day carries particular significance to me, Astrid Angell (owner of Ástríðr), hi! As a little girl, I refused to wear anything but dresses. My mother, sensing the confidence and agency this instilled in me even as a child, encouraged me from then on to wear whatever I wanted, no matter what, so long as it made me feel strong. In May of 2020 she passed away. Ástríðr exists to honor the strength and wisdom that my mother imparted on me, namely, what it means to be defiantly delicate.

Ástríðr Exists to Resist

Embodying what it means to be defiantly delicate is the heart and soul of Ástríðr. Dresses, embroidery, drapery and the like have often been associated with ideas of feminine frailty. It looks pretty yet breaks easily. Ástríðr exists to resist these ideas. For me, the right dress with the right embroider, or the right fit that lays on my body just so becomes a suit of armor that allows me to meet the world on my own terms, with confidence. Delicacy, by definition, describes something of fine craftsmanship, quality and structure that can stand the test of time. The goal of Ástríðr is to provide beautiful garments that meet these standards of craft at a price that's affordable for all people.
