Evolution St. Louis collaborates with 2Lu, St. Louis Blues to provide ‘Made in St. Louis’ fan gear
Products recently debuted as part of the St. Louis Blues’ holiday assortment, local partnership supports city’s fashion ecosystem
Evolution St. Louis recently partnered with 2Lu and the St. Louis Blues to produce elevated fan apparel for the 2020-21 season.
We are a woman-owned and operated fan gear company founded by sisters Melissa Nieberle and Drea Ranek, provides premium boutique-style and private label products for sports brands. Ranek is a member of the Saint Louis Fashion Fund board of directors.
“We are intentional about working with locally owned businesses to support the St. Louis fashion ecosystem and this collaboration was a great opportunity,” Nieberle said. “The staff at Evolution St. Louis have a great sense of style and the programmers helped make our designs a reality.”
“This project is a great example of how the Saint Louis Fashion Fund can foster collaboration across the entire fashion landscape in St. Louis,” Ranek said. “Businesses like 2Lu and Evolution St. Louis are putting our city back on the map as a fashion capital.”
Evolution St. Louis — the most high-tech, highly advanced knitting facility in the United States — produced men’s and women’s sweaters and a scarf at its manufacturing facility at 3830 Washington Blvd. as part of the Blues’ holiday assortment that will be sold exclusively through stlauthentics.com.
We are beyond excited about these partnerships now and in the future. We know there are many avenues that we can navigate together to bring more small businesses into the mix! We have to continue to work together if we want to keep St. Louis businesses thriving and collaborations will do just that!
