Studio to Street!
urbanretreat launched in 2016 under the bright California sun in Downtown Los Angeles. FIDM graduate and former fashion designer/storeowner Makkie became a registered yoga instructor in 2014. She trained in Sedona, AZ, receiving her RYT 200 certificate from Yoga Alliance. Since then, she has been teaching hot stone yoga and designing clothes that complement her new lifestyle. With her knowledge in both fashion and yoga, it was natural for her to create the fashion forward athleisure line, urbanretreat.
Athleisure wear is fairly new, but it did not take long for this hybrid concept to attract super health conscious L.A. locals – individuals known to prefer organic products and practice yoga on a daily basis. Nowadays, athleisure wear is a wardrobe staple for not just people in Los Angeles, but also worldwide, helping the motivation of a heathy lifestyle, both mentally and physically. The concept behind urbanretreat is “Studio to Street”, having both functionality as active wear, and being trendy with fashion-forward designs.
