Founder Maya Winston saw an opportunity to challenge “fast fashion”, an environment in which goods are mass produced with fewer attention to detail. Maya Winston sought to challenge those norms, by creating an elevated experience for each client, including a luxury gift box enclosed with a bow and handwritten thank you notes for each order.
“The thing about experiences is, it evokes emotion; that feeling can't be forced, it has to be organic. Our goal is to provide that experience to our clients with each order.” - Maya Winston
