About Me

Greetings! I am pleased you are visiting my shop and getting to know a little more about Ana Jost Designs. Art and fashion have provided me with an outlet for creativity, inspiration, and healing which I share with you.

From the tender age of 5 I began to develop my craft to creating my own desi gns to dress up my dolls and soon had a following among the neighborhood kids of my native land Peru. These skills came as naturally as breathing, emulating my parents a designer/ couturier and an architect.

Life took me in many directions but I kept coming back to those childhood passions. After moving to Vancouver-Canada I graduated from a Fashion Arts program. With the newly acquired skills, I started my own line of clothing, worked as a costume designer, stylist and for the film and fashion industries.

Working and observing up close both industries, I noted the massive waste of clothing and fabrics. Fast fashion was consuming our resources and polluting our lands while creating masses of waste. The fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters of the planet and there is a huge amount of cheap, disposable clothing that is being produced while paying workers ridiculous low wages. Was there not another way?

This realization set me on a new path. It was time to use my skills and awareness to work towards a sustainable planet. Ana Jost designs strives to achieve this goal by creating and producing beautiful UPCYCLED fashion. Every single piece in my shop has been designed and handmade with recycled fabrics that I have personally handpicked. Please join me in this movement towards a more sustainable Earth.
