This amazing female founded fashion brand offers meticulously designed, art-inspired ready-to-wear pieces with a refreshing aesthetic, centered on an inspiring cause.
Parsons School of Design graduate and Alice + Olivia, Coach and Sam Edelman alum, Jovana Mullins discovered a vibrant world of untapped potential while volunteering at the Center for All Abilities in New York that she immediately envisioned being transformed into fashion. The bold, expressive art inspired by colorful imaginations of those with developmental disabilities gave birth a redefined business model to usher in an innovative new way to wear impact.
Sustainable, ethical, charitable and tech-savvy, Alivia is currently co-led by a NY-based wife and husband team, Jovana and Brandon Mullins. Each piece of the debut collection begins with an original artwork created by a person with a developmental disability. Collaborative in principle, their designers work to meticulously transform these works into bold prints and intricate embroideries that are incorporated into distinctly colorful garments in elevated silhouettes, while preserving the integrity of their unparalleled conception. Their aim is to break preconceived boundaries – to showcase the level of unbelievable artistic talent inherent in people with different abilities.
The entire collection is produced via certified ethical factory partners in NYC and India, with fabrics that feature recycled and regenerated fibers and utilize environmentally friendly printing processes. With every purchase, Alivia donates 10% of the sale price directly to the artists’ local non-profit where the artwork originated, and the consumer will receive a printed reproduction of the original artwork that inspired the garment with the artist’s signature and a thank you note.
This is impact you can see and share, a unique scannable QR tag is stitched into every garment that directs the wearer to the personal story behind the original creator, their associated nonprofit, and a portal for additional donations – bringing the consumer closer to their direct human impact than ever before. It’s not fast fashion, it’s thoughtful fashion.
