Being a fashion designer was a lifelong dream of mine and I feel so lucky to say that it's my job!  After college, I immediately began working as a design assistant in New York City for a few very successful high end designers. It truly is an experience every young designer, including yours truly, dreams of.  

While I learned so much and am eternally grateful for the opportunity, trying to constantly achieve someone else's vision isn't as fulfilling as you might think. Can you believe? 

I quickly came to realize while I was creating beautiful pieces of clothing that would one day be loved by many, I was also adding more to a world that is already so full. The idea for MP USA came from my love of creating art and designing while also preserving our planet – breathing new life into the clothes that are already hanging in our (or someone else's) closets.
