Hilary Perry began StellaRay in 2007 as a step towards sustainable fashion. The brand, which prides itself on using natural fabrics and offering more sustainable, ethical options to its customers, is constantly expanding with new patterns and designs.
Hilary’s Experience with StellaRay
When I founded StellaRay, I wanted to create a brand that would resonate with modern women. We are so much more than just our looks, and I wanted our products to reflect that. I’m so proud of the message we’re sending with our clothes and accessories.
I never thought I’d be in the fashion industry, but it’s been such a fun and rewarding journey. I love seeing how our pieces make women feel confident and beautiful. It’s been amazing to watch our company grow and reach new customers all over the world.
I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported StellaRay from the beginning. Thank you for believing in us and helping us spread the word!
StellaRay is all about slow, ethical fashion in the Hudson Valley
Slow fashion is all about taking the time to design and create high quality garments that will last for years. It’s the opposite of fast fashion, which is all about churning out cheap, trendy clothes as quickly as possible. Slow fashion is better for the environment and for the workers who create the clothing.
Hilary Perry is the founder of StellaRay, a slow fashion brand based in the Hudson Valley. StellaRay creates beautiful, handmade clothing using sustainable materials like linen and hemp. The designs are timeless and can be worn year after year. Hilary is passionate about making slow fashion more accessible to everyone. She believes that everyone deserves to own beautiful clothing that they can feel good about wearing.

What would you describe as your personal style?
My personal style is best described as classic with a twist. I love timeless pieces that never go out of style, but I also enjoy mixing in a few trendier items to keep things fresh. For example, I might pair a vintage Chanel jacket with ripped jeans and sneakers. I think it’s important to have fun with fashion and not take yourself too seriously.
What are some of your favorite brands?
I have many favorite brands, but some of my current favorites include J.Crew, Gucci, Stella McCartney, and R13 Denim. I’m also a big fan of vintage finds – there’s nothing like scoring a one-of-a-kind piece at a fraction of the retail price!
