About

WASHED AWAY is a Los Angeles based start-up brand created and designed by Chad Lehner and Alicia De La Rosa. We are inspired by surfing, skateboarding, music, art, and everything that Southern California has to offer. We strive to create simple, minimalistic designs that are creative and eye catching.

We’re here to ask for your support in helping us achieve our dreams of becoming a recognizable lifestyle brand. 

Chad is currently living in Los Angeles, CA where he stays extremely busy running WASHED AWAY as well as being involved in the music industry. 

Alicia also lives in Los Angeles, CA where she designs and creates some of your favorite styles for not only WASHED AWAY, but for a few of the largest fashion labels in the country. 

Creating a lifestyle brand that focuses on everything that WASHED AWAY stands for has always been a dream of ours. To this day, fashion, music, surfing, skateboarding, art and the laid back Southern California lifestyle are all a major part of our everyday lives.  We hope you like it as much as we do!

WASHED AWAY also allows us to give back. WASHED AWAY supports and makes annual donations to Oceana, the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation, that will help restore ocean ecosystems that will sustain us, entertain us, and generate jobs around the world for future generations. You can learn more about Oceana and WASHED AWAY's role here

Currently, we are marketing WASHED AWAY the best that we can with the resources available to us while continuing to design new and exciting products for upcoming collections. 

We are marketing WASHED AWAY through paid advertising, as well as using various forums, social media networks and personal connections to spread the word. 

We are highly motivated to move forward with the production of our debut collection so we will be able to fulfill orders and create a lookbook which will help us take the next step in placing WASHED AWAY in a number of retail outlets. 

The reception that we have received to date has been amazing! WASHED AWAY is fully dedicated to working non-stop to achieve our dream of creating a unique and recognizable lifestyle brand. 

We are asking for your support so we can better show you what the future of WASHED AWAY holds. With your backing, we’ll be able to produce a number of key products from our debut collection as well as professional quality lookbook's that will showcase our designs and overall vision. 

All of our products will be manufactured using only the best materials. We will be working very closely with some of the best printers in Los Angeles who have multiple years of experience printing for hundreds of clients. 

We hope that you believe in our success as much as we do and will support WASHED AWAY after you have the chance to look at our designs and read our story.

We can’t do it without you and we don’t want to. We need and want your support every step along the way! 

Assuming we meet our goal, WASHED AWAY will use the money we’ve raised for the following: 

  • Startup Costs and Application fees - Business accounts, tax permits, reseller licenses and business licenses must all be applied for and obtained before we can move forward.
  • The production of key pieces from our debut collection (which can be seen below) 
  • Samples for our follow-up collection 
  • Fulfillment of current orders 
  • Printing of stickers  
  • Lookbook creation 

You can also view additional colorways and designs by visiting our official online store here

Once the campaign is over, and assuming we have met our goal, we will send you a survey through Kickstarter so you can let us know everything that we need to fulfill your rewards.

Feel free to email me directly at Chad@WashedAwayLA.com with any additional questions that you may have. We will be quick to respond!

Risks and challenges

We’ve worked extremely hard over the past months to make Washed Away a reality.

We’ve created the designs, met with the appropriate people, and now we're ready to begin... the only thing we're missing is the ability to cover printing costs. This is where your help and support comes in. The pledges from Kickstarter will allow us to produce our debut collection and begin spreading our clothing to the world!

Timeline
