Get to Know: Thirteen Seven

Hi Mya!

Tell us about your brand and your business model.

Thirteen Seven solves the dreaded problem of boob gape in women’s button down shirts. We make high quality shirts for the stylish, modern women.

We currently sell direct to consumer only, and as an item based line focused on quality over quantity, are currently only putting out limited batch collections twice a year.

What drove you to start your own label? And what have you enjoyed the most so far?

I launched my label for multiple reasons. First, I really wanted to create a shirt that solved this problem that myself and so many women struggle with regularly.

I also have always loved fashion, style, and design and this was a way for me to create something that is both a business and a form of self expression.

What are one or two big goals you’re focusing on in the next 6 months?

The first main goal would be to build brand awareness and a following. The second would be to continue to develop the product and work on the second collection.
