Mrs. Jones: A Deadstock Brand That Designs Only Pieces That Go With Air Force Ones
Sustainable fashion is a lot of fun because there are so many unique brands out in the universe who continue to challenge traditional norms. We were very excited to interview the new and funky brand Mrs. Jones (not to be confused with the Billy Paul's R&B hit from the 70's).
Founded by Nichole Moss (AKA Mrs. Jones), this brand pays homage to all of the beautiful women who impact the world. As a Woman of Color, Nichole especially works to dispel the very limiting narrative of who holds space across the different genres of fashion.
Nichole started in the music business working for Source magazine in the fashion department. She also worked for Def Jam in PR and marketing and also got her hands dirty in children's fashion with Calvin Klein. With a heavy entertainment background, ethical fashion came about by accident.
Always passionate about becoming a fashion designer, creating limited edition and small runs forced her to become more conscious.
Not only did Nichole seek to have a brand focused on up cycling, she wanted to make sure that WOC were visually represented.
Mrs. Jones is 100% inspired by vintage style and the cultural landscape of Mexico City, Los Angeles and New York. Everything is wearable and it's either 100% cotton or silk deadstock creations. We love her emphasis on everything being dedicated to women - For Women, By Women and completely stepping away from big business models. Their factory in Mexico is completely woman owned and operated!
