Message from the Founder
- As an Afro-Latina founder, I want to center the BIPOC narrative. My father is African-American and my mother, Mexican-American. They both served in the military so I'm a proud military brat born on the island of Puerto Rico. Our family was then transferred to the Hawaiian island of O'ahu before calling Los Angeles home.
- My husband is Korean-American and together we have four multicultural, multiracial and multilingual children.
- In dressing my children, I noticed fashion didn't reflect a rich, multicultural reality that I wanted to see in the world so I decided to create Mixed Up Clothing.
- I use fashion as my vehicle to tell our multicultural stories. I want children to see themselves in fashion, on the runway and in print. Everything we do comes from a place of celebration and showcasing heritage and culture.
- I source fabrics and trims from all over the world, mix and match them, and then sew them into fun, everyday pieces that children are proud to wear.
- Mixed Up Clothing is about connecting to culture and identity. Wearing clothes that highlight who we are and our roots provides an opportunity to express our pride and learn about one another. We are on a mission, a movement of wanting to be seen and wanting accurate cultural representations of our multicultural experiences. Representation matters and I'm so excited to be a part of amplifying our diverse voices with Mixed Up Clothing.
