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.

sharmbaa is an acronym and it stands for: SHoulders, ARMs, BAck And more! I designed my stylish, lightweight, compact, convertible multi-way toppers so that the woman on the go can participate in the moment, with confidence and ease, knowing that she can manage any type of indoor or outdoor temperature shift with flair.
Alchemy Detroit; a menswear-inspired line known for deceptively simple sophistication, flawless construction, and a keen sense of classic lines. After years of frustration searching for the perfect blazer, only to encounter an increasing trend toward poorly-made, yet still expensive labels, I imagined the welcome return of investment pieces that would last a lifetime.
