Get To Know: SixChel
Tell us about your brand and your business model.
SixChel is sustainable and ethical fashion that empowers women to design and style the garment before they make their purchase.
What drove you to start your own label? And what have you enjoyed the most so far?
After years spent building my own fashion label from the ground up, a family tragedy led me to reevaluate life – and business – as I’d always known it. I closed that company, and spent one year creating a new brand focus on apparel that’s made ethically and as sustainably as possible. The most enjoyable aspect so far has simply been to just have the opportunity to do what I love while contributing to improvements on social issues that will make our future.
What are one or two big goals you’re focusing on in the next 6 months?
With the release of our first collection, we look forward to pop-up shops and speaking engagements within the next few months. SixChel is also preparing for the creation of their next collection.

Summation offers womenswear that is the anti-thesis of fast fashion by incorporating the age-old Indian textiles/ surplus export fabric in combination with cutting-edge contemporary design. Each of Summation's collection is the outcome of a design process that draws on our cultural heritage and our design sensibility which is fiercely modern, fashion forward, and minimalist.
Hokum is a luxury label full of colour and whimsy with a strong narrative to each collection. We have an omni channel approach, selling online, in store, and to wholesale accounts. It sounds like a traditional approach, but in many ways we are not. My work desk is set up at the back of the shop allowing customers to see the work that goes on behind the scenes.
