Press Release -- June 25 Voting Launch

Maven Women moves the needle in the global fashion industry, creating socially conscious workwear through product co-creation.

WASHINGTON, DC, June 25, 2016 - One month after their launch on the eve of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the largest global fashion industry gathering focused on sustainability, Maven Women launched their feedback process for their inaugural collection of socially conscious, elegant workwear for women (https://www.mavenwomen.com).  Maven Women is collaboratively creating a capsule collection of clothing women love to wear in the spirit of slow fashion, reducing the waste that is often the industry norm. Maven Women believes in the dignity of all people, environmental stewardship, and the tremendous transformative power of women uniting as a force for change.

Join us in co-creating clothing women love to wear by voting on your favorite of our savvy, sustainable styles (http://maven.style).

Public interest lawyer, nonprofit leader, and social justice advocate Rebecca Ballard launched Maven Women to move the needle in the global garment industry and provide additional options for professional women’s attire. Maven Women designs comfortable, flattering investment pieces with just the right cut co-created in the spirit of slow fashion. Their styles are timeless wardrobe staples with interesting, modern twists easily dressed up or down for an elegant day-to-evening look. Maven Women will empower both the garment workers who make their clothing and the women who wear it, weaving together elegance and social consciousness. 

Leading social entrepreneurs, labor and human rights leaders, and thoughtful consumers will drive change together. Over a hundred leaders in Washington, DC, including anti-human trafficking advocates, social entrepreneurs, human rights advocates, economists, and members of the media, came together to celebrate the next step in the Maven Women product co-creation process at the Compass Rose restaurant on Saturday, June 25th. Attendees shared their feedback on key design elements and heard from local experts on issues related to sustainable fashion and the global garment industry.
