At FASHIONABLE, we believe our role is to INVEST IN A WOMAN. When a woman is empowered with work to do, whether in the home or in an office, she not only experiences the joy and satisfaction of developing a skill, she also creates change in those around her. FASHIONABLE’s role in this story is working with women, both locally and globally, who have overcome challenges ranging from prostitution to addiction to a lack of opportunity. Every one of us understands what it means to overcome, and we are all ABLE to find purpose in the work we do. Thank you for joining us.
Love it all. Why?
Women have been proven to be the backbone of restoring communities and even battling poverty. So with your help, we work to give opportunity to women where there is often little, and then they effect change.
FASHIONABLE started when Barrett was living in Ethiopia and met women coming out of the commercial sex industry who wanted jobs. Now FASHIONABLE works globally with women coming from many different backgrounds, all looking for opportunity.
Gracie started creating jewelry and doing creative therapy with women coming out of recovery who have battled everything from addiction to depression to homelessness. Hearing from these women that it was often difficult to get jobs post-recovery, they started selling their jewelry to create jobs for the women.
Who is your customer?
We certainly love our customer, and they are varied. Here is who we’ve learned them to be:
This girl loves the simple things in life. She buys pieces like the Dainty Circle Necklace and the Cognac Mamuye tote that she can wear everyday. She believes that “less is more” and loves curating her capsule closet for each season.
This girl loves bold accessories paired with black and white prints. Her unique fashion-forward style is a mix of edge and feminine sensibility. She admires fashion, art, and music, and loves to travel to new places for inspiration. The Waterfall necklace & black Mamuye Leather Tote are the perfect accessories for her chic style.
THE BOHO ADVENTURER
This girl loves floral prints and turquoise accessories. She’s a free-spirit that is always exploring the world around her. She loves to spend her time outdoors listening to music and admiring the beauty of nature. Her chocolate Mamuye Tote and Santa Fe ring are the perfect companions for all of her travels and adventures.
This girl has cool, classic, and effortless style. Her go-to outfit is denim-on-denim with a pair of flats and dainty accessories like our monogram Tiny Tag necklace. Her Abera tote is the perfect bag to carry all of her essentials from work to the weekend.
What do you value as a company?
It can’t be more simply stated that we are able to do what we do, and the women we work with are able to do what they do, because of your advocacy and purchases. So, we are grateful for you and want to exceed your expectations in customer service. April heads up that work, and she is super super nice.
We work hard, knowing that the work we put in positively affects the lives of women across the globe. We are a family here, and even if things get stressful, we know blood is thicker than water. We love to celebrate each other… which really means we eat a lot of cupcakes!
