Measurement Tips

Bust

Bring arms to your sides, place tape measure under your arms
and run it around the fullest part of the bustline.

Waist

Locate the natural crease of your waist by bending to one side. Loop the tape measure around
your natural waistline, keeping one finger between the tape and your body for an easy fit.

Hips

Place feet together, loop the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips,
approximately 7 inches below your waistline.

The rallier

Dechel Mckillian

Derived from the verb, “to rally,” The Ralliers  redefine the world around them by embracing their unique vision, sense of self and enduring signature style. (In short: they’re women we’d emulate, in our own way.)
Each woman has self produced the images that appear in their story.  

Describe yourself.

I’m Dechel Mckillian founder of GALERIE.LA.  I’m a native Los Angeleno, currently live in Venice Beach and a new mom to my puppy Domino.  I’m growing each day and doing my best to live a more sustainable and conscious lifestyle. 

 How have you broken with tradition in exchange for a self-defined life?

GALERIE.LA is the biggest example in my life where I’ve followed my intuition.  I essentially changed my entire career as a stylist to pursue a vision in 2014.  I told many people before launching the GALERIE.LA platform that I would curate sustainable fashion and I got told NO all the time.  People said it would never work, the market size wasn’t big enough, sustainability wasn’t a thing and so much more.  When I started talking about sustainability, friends would change the subject or roll their eyes like here she goes again.  But that’s only because it wasn’t on people’s minds.  They couldn’t see why it was important. Now we see the urgency. Climate change, water pollution, the Amazon burning, etc.  Every day there’s something.  There’s more discussion about sustainability now than ever.  Following my intuition to go into sustainable fashion was very important to trust that everything was working out to support the bigger picture of preserving our environment and protecting worker's rights.  

 

I realized that one of the biggest impacts I can have on the world is through my closet. 

 

Tell us about your uniform.   

I’m currently wearing a Back Beat Co organic cotton ivory turtleneck, Conrado utility pant, a 13 Bonaparte navy corduroy jacket, Cled green minimal torus earrings, and Clarks Clogs.  I tend to dress in a uniform style and buy from emerging sustainable brands or second-hand from thrift and vintage stores. Most of my current outfit is purchased from GALERIE.LA!  

I realized that one of the biggest impacts I can have on the world is through my closet.  Shopping sustainably is very important to me.  When I woke up to the facts like fashion is the second-largest polluter after oil and is responsible for 10% of the entire carbon footprint in the world which just to contextualize that is five times more carbon output than all airline travel, I had to be more responsible with what I was wearing.  Your dollar can do good and can stretch all around the globe - Rallier is a great example of that!  

I was a Celebrity Stylist before founding GALERIE.LA and after traveling the world, I saw firsthand fashion’s impact on people and the planet.  Once you see it, you can’t unsee or unlearn the devastation fashion has.  I realized it was my responsibility to do better and make a positive impact with my career through fashion.   

Tell us about your work.

I’m the Founder and Creative Director of GALERIE.LA.  I thoughtfully curate a platform for emerging sustainable fashion and lifestyle brands.  I founded GALERIE.LA in 2015, after having had a hard time finding brands that aligned with a sustainable ethos.  I did months and months of research and discovered brands from all around the world who are responsibly producing fashion.  I’m excited to continue growing the GALERIE.LA online platform and working with more sustainable brands all around the world. The GALERIE.LA flagship store at ROW DTLA serves as a community hub for sustainable fashion in Los Angeles and I always look forward to the events we host. 

What are you searching for?  

Always more freedom! (Isn’t everyone :))  

What have you learned along the way? 

I’m always learning to be more patient.  Growing a small business while investing in people and the planet takes time.  This is an important lesson for me as an entrepreneur because it forces me to live in the present moment and embrace the GALERIE.LA long-term vision.

What are you struggling with?

 Starting a business is one thing, growing a business is another and requires a different set of tools. I'm struggling with balancing being in my business, the day-to-day with the scale. Trying to find more time to vision to see GALERIE.LA's full idea realized. The beginning of the year is a good time to make the time though! 

What brings you comfort?  

I love being by the ocean.  I started taking my puppy Domino for morning walks on the beach and it has been the best way for me to start my day, clear my mind and affirm the day ahead.

Share a good read, watch, or listen.

The Expanded podcast with Lacy Phillips is what I’m listening to every week.  I highly recommend it to everyone that is manifesting something great in their lives.  I realized that I knew many of the guests personally, hearing their stories of manifestation and the process they worked through is wonderful.  On social media or business lens, everyone’s life looks great so it’s refreshing to hear what has happened behind the scenes in people’s lives to get them where they’re at now.  

Tell us about something new.

I don’t buy a lot but I recently invested in great skincare from Osea and it has been a game-changer for my morning ritual.  The Atmosphere Protection Cream is the best moisturizer I’ve found so far.  All their products are non-toxic, organic and vegan.  I met the founder and learned that it was a family-owned business and hearing the story about how Osea came to be made me love the products even more.

Tell us about a gift you gave someone.

I share a birthday a few days apart from my best friend.  I celebrated with a sound bath in Malibu and gifted her with a ticket to join for her birthday.  We had an incredible evening!  It made me realize the best gifts in life are shared experiences and not always material things.

Tell us about something you created.

The kitchen oddly enough has been a great creative outlet for me lately.  As it's winter, I’ve been really into soups.  They’re comforting and super easy to make.  My favorite is an avocado soup with corn and spinach (recipe below!)

Soup Recipe (2 Servings):  2 avocados, 1 Sweet Corn on the cob, 1 cup of spinach, 1 garlic clove, 1 tablespoon of olive oil + salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.  Cut the corn from the cob and put all the veggies in the blender for a creamy consistency.  Sprinkle with vegan parmesan cheese and serve with a piece of toasted sourdough bread

Share a takeaway.

I learned about my Human Design earlier this year and it has impacted the way I go about my life.  I’m a Manifestor Generator which some say is like a Buddha Warrior archetype.  This year, I’ve put self-care and my spiritual practice above all else which hasn’t always been easy.  The outcome is I have experienced less burnout and fatigue, feel rejuvenated around my life’s purpose and experience more authentic connections with people.  I encourage everyone to learn their Human Design and learn the parts of the chart that affect lifestyle and decision making.
