Hi! I'm Melanie, founder of virtue + vice
For over a decade I have developed products for many of the brands you have in your closet. I have worked with the behemoths like Walmart and Target, as well as shaky startups that evolved into cult favorites like Nili Lotan and Hunter Boot.
I believe that in order to fix fashion, first we need to understand how it’s made. So, after living and working in countries like China, India, Taiwan, and the Philippines where I really got to see first-hand how the fashion industry operates, I now have a few ideas about how we can all be doing better.
Whether you are a brand or a customer, my goal is always the same – to help educate and give you all the facts so you can make your own informed and thoughtful fashion decisions.
