Why Sustainable

After years spent building my own fashion label from the ground up, a family tragedy led me to reevaluate life – and business – as I’d always known it. I closed that company, and spent 1 year creating an entirely new brand focused on apparel that’s made ethically and as sustainably as possible. The fashion industry is one of the largest contributing factors to our Earth’s pollution. Working in the fashion industry for a number of years, and experiencing all the components of building a fashion line, I realized that I could not add to the pollution and toxins the fast-fashion industry had created.

Our Mission

SixChel is committed to focusing on slow-fashion principles as well as using the finest sustainable fabrics to produce clothes with a purpose. As we continue to grow, our knowledge of sustainability and ethical practices will also grow. SixChel is dedicated to finding the best options to provide you with the best sustainable clothes and made in great working conditions.

Our Values

 

Certain components became more important as I learned about fashion and worked in the industry. I quickly became aware of the negative connotation the fashion industry had created about women and knew I wanted my brand to be a positive force women could feel proud to wear and support. SixChel encourages woman empowerment and believes that by supporting the diversity amongst women, we will create a positive and acceptable environment for all women who seek comfort in sustainable and stylish clothes.

SixChel is proud to say we are cut & sewn in Brooklyn, NY.
