Historically, the term "krewe" (ˈkrü) is linked to Mardi Gras, a tradition that is uniquely New Orleanian. It attempts to define the diverse group that comes together to parade in celebration of the Carnival season. Our name invokes this spirit of creative collaboration.
The company was founded in 2013 by Stirling Barrett, a New Orleans native and creative entrepreneur. His vision of the city as a thriving cultural hub was his inspiration for launching KREWE. Our team passionately believes in spreading the culture of New Orleans and its celebration of individual style, one frame at a time.
