EVERYBODY.WORLD makes and sells thoughtful goods.
Like EVERYBODY.WORLD, Iris Alonzo and Carolina Crespo were born and bred in Los Angeles. Iris is a fifth-generation Angeleno and Carolina a first-generation American; the daughter of Mexican immigrants who ran a factory in downtown LA throughout the 1970s-90s. [Side note: one of EVERYBODY.WORLD’s main factories is owned by a man who learned his trade working for Carolina’s family back in the day.] They both draw inspiration from the city they live in and having spent years around talented people who could make something from scratch, they’ve built their business on a foundation of ethical and eco-friendly production and the cross-pollination of ideas from people of all walks of life. During their tenure at American Apparel-the two spent some 26 years there between them-they shaped the brand’s aesthetic and were influential in its explosive growth. Iris managed the brand aesthetic and instigated a number of its signature looks, while Carolina went from designing the brand’s first logo in a Kinko’s on Sunset Boulevard to managing the entire graphics and kids’ divisions. Now they’ve joined forces to found EVERYBODY.WORLD, a company dedicated to creating soulful, seasonless basics alongside outrageous and comfortable lifestyle-goods.
