Makemechic: Ethical, Sustainable Women’s Fashion

The Los Angeles based clothing brand Makemechic is disrupting the world of fast fashion with its ethical manufacturing and sustainable practices. Founded in 2013 by entrepreneur Michelle Park, Makemechic creates stylish, affordable women’s clothing while promoting social and environmental responsibility.

Makemechic aims to prove that style and ethics can coexist through fair labor conditions and eco-friendly materials. The brand’s slogan “Look Good, Do Good” encapsulates its mission to make ethical fashion accessible to all women.

As a certified B Corporation and social enterprise, Makemechic puts people first in its business practices. The clothing is produced locally in LA factories or in carefully vetted overseas suppliers to ensure excellent working conditions verified by independent audits. Makemechic goes above and beyond to guarantee fair wages and safe environments for the workers who make the clothes. The brand even reinvests 20% of its profits to support women in need through targeted programs.

In addition to ethical manufacturing, Makemechic utilizes recycled polyester made from plastic bottles, organic cotton, hemp, and other sustainable textiles. Makemechic is Bluesign certified for environmentally friendly production using non-toxic materials and processes. It’s also Oeko-Tex certified free of harmful chemicals. Initiatives like minimal packaging, zero waste pledges, carbon neutral shipping, and offsetting carbon emissions further Makemechic’s sustainability efforts and reduced environmental impact.

Makemechic’s clothes offer elegance with playful details manifested through floral prints, bright colors, and unique embellishments. The collections feature essential dresses, jumpsuits, separates, outerwear, swimwear, and accessories designed in on-trend silhouettes. Customers love the brand’s inclusive size ranges up to 4X, curvy fits, adjustable straps, and thoughtful proportions to flatter diverse figures.

As a direct-to-consumer brand, Makemechic sells through its own ecommerce store instead of relying on retailers as middlemen. This allows the company to offer premium quality clothing at accessible price points and engage directly with customers. On its website, Makemechic provides style advice, brand stories, and community engagement to build lasting relationships beyond just selling products.

By making ethical fashion available for women of all sizes, Makemechic proves that sustainability and success can coexist in the fashion world. Through ethical manufacturing, eco-friendly materials, and inclusive sizing, the brand empowers women to look and feel their best while using business as a force for good. Makemechic sets an example that other fashion labels should follow.
