Our Mission

A large part of Nina Berenato's brand identity rests on the designer's goal to use her gift for design to make all women feel powerful, beautiful and capable of anything. 

Since opening up her first retail store located in Austin, TX inside of a re-furbished 1959 Airstream Bambi, Nina has become a fixture in Austin’s growing maker community. In 2017, Nina Berenato opened her first flagship store where she produces her namesake collection, teaches jewelry making classes and leads her team of 4 incredible Austin women.

In 2020, Nina Berenato Jewelry received Austin's highest sustainability honor, Platinum Green Business Leader, becoming the first fashion retailer to do so. 

The designer's involvement in the Austin community doesn't stop with her leadership in sustainable fashion, she uses her designs to raise money for local charities and regularly opens her shop up as a space to help other female artists grow and thrive.

Every piece Nina makes is 100% women-made, certified sustainable and socially good.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

We are here to prove...

That there is a place in today's economy for woman-made goods.

That as female makers, we are valuable and capable of creating products that are innovative and worthy

That as a company, we are not afraid to challenge the fashion industry status quo - or create another, better one. 

That we, as women, can come together, lift each other up, and rise side by side to be successful in business & in life. 

One person can change an industry. One person can declare war. 

As the Owner, Founder, and Designer, it is my job to audit myself, my team, and my brand and find ways for improvement. Our journey is continuing and our fight to change women's lives and our industry has not stopped!

In June of 2020, we had a store meeting. Here are some ways that we, as a store and as people, have decided to expand on our values and mission. Click here to see what Nina Berenato Jewelry is doing in 2020.
