Dressed in Joy

Sustainability as a Standard

Making a difference, one joyful garment at a time.

Why Sustainability?

More than 40 billion garments to unsold each year. That's almost 40% of all clothing sold, worldwide. With our current environmental crisis at the forefront, we are very mindful of the impact our clothing business can have. So instead of having hundreds of garments made with each collection, limiting our offerings, we employ a print-to-order model with our Ready To Wear collection when we launched it in May 2021.

This has given us the ability to provide several size and print options for you, in addition to keeping our out of pocket costs lower.

Made for You

Your garment doesn't exist until you order it. Once you place your order, our team in the Caribbean gets to work. Each garment is printed digitally, using less material, less water and dyes than any other manufacturer in the world.

✦ 0% inventory waste
✦ 97% less dye
✦ 75% less water
✦ 70% less CO2
✦ 50% fewer yards of material

A little about me

Do you know that feeling you get when you find that amazing piece you love? You can hardly wait to get it home, rip the tags off, and figure out what shoes and accessories you'll wear with it! That exact feeling is a huge part of why I began designing hoodies.The excitement I feel when I complete one of my designs is like no other!

As someone whose love of Hawaii runs almost as deep as my love of fashion, you'll recognize the influence of the islands in the elements I choose, in the colors and patterns, and in the stories they tell. Never one to shy away from mixing prints, I hope to inspire women to try a new color, or a new way to style that printed piece, all while radiating beauty and self-confidence!

We look forward to being your go to shop for statement-making clothing that add a little Joy to your wardrobe.

Your print-loving designer,
Mikaela Pabon
