So proud to be included in STYLECASTER'S round up of Asian American owned fashion and beauty brands. As they say, "Slip on a pair of Vision Quest babouche shoes and believe me- you'll never look back". We agree! We want you always to look forward!

For every pair of tie dye socks sold, we’re donating a pair to the Downtown Women’s Center- the the only organization in L.A. focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.

I designed the logo with a seeing eye, and “Yes or No” above the brow- to remind us to be open, ask questions and move confidently forward.
