Hello! I'm Grace & The Dallant is my baby.
I'm a true city girl - born in LA, grew up in Seoul, now living in NYC for 11+ years. I launched The Dallant for other city girls like myself that love effortless (but chic) & trendy (but not too over-the-top) style.
While living in South Korea, I saw a huge benefit in local shopping - stores offered latest trending designs with great quality and unbeatable prices. Whereas, in the US, we were limited to major fast-fashion retailers or costly luxury brands. I was sad to see girls in the US miss out on such great products, so I started The Dallant in 2019 to introduce my fellow Korean independent designers to friends over in NYC. Now, The Dallant carries over 20 independent designer labels from South Korea - some of our designers are even showing in NYFW & globally.
Most importantly, through working with content creators to raise brand awareness, I found the most joy in building relationships with all the talented creators, beyond our usual business, a.k.a. "collaborations". I felt a strong longing for a community of like-minded creatives and through getting to know the creators, I learned that a lot of them shared similar desires. In May of 2021, The Dallant's website re-launched with a newly defined store concept & mission to build a community of talented creators.
I'm super excited to see our multi-brand online store grow along with our amazing designers & content creators and hope The Dallant serves as an inspirational space for creatives and city girls around the world.
