Dear White Women

Aug 28, 2020

When you work on Kanye’s first album, then for Calvin Klein, and then in ethical kids’ fashion, what’s your natural next step?

If you said designing your own (amazing) dresses, you’d be talking about the owner and creator of mrs. jones, Nichole Moss. This powerhouse woman thinks about EVERY detail of the clothes that she’s designing, from who manufactures them, to the quality of the fabrics that she uses, to the fact that she has POCKETS IN HER DRESSES, people.

But more importantly, she’s changing the viewpoint that Black designers have to either be creating super high fashion or “urban” street style and dropping pearls of wisdom along the way.

What to listen for: 

  • A ton of philosophical advice about social media, being a fabric snob, the stretch within the oval of life, quality over quantity, and how being a mother at 18 catapulted her forward instead of pulling her down. She’s amazingly inspiring.
  • Her journey from seemingly unrelated careers into a consciously crafted fashion label for women, by women, to fill a gap in the market that she wanted to see for herself.
  • The intentionality behind every part of mrs. jones, including employing women from women-owned factories, and offsetting the waste problem we see in fashion.
