Sustainability is Mo's driving force, which means "less waste, more social justice, spirituality and an overall well-being…” Create MoLove (501c3) is our social impact initiative. With local partners, we are teaching work force readiness in fashion and holding the door open for young people to enhance their creativity and create new career paths (

Mo's commitment to service comes from her lived struggle to grasp the many moving parts of apparel manufacturing. The generosity and wisdom from her co-workers and trials of operating a business are how Mo succeeded and what she continues to pay forward. “A fashion business is a beautiful challenge that you don’t have to take on alone.”

From this idea sprung Garment Learning Studio (GLS): a membership community for fashion entrepreneurs to access mentors and tailored resources in a supportive, focused setting. Whether you are starting your brand or deep in the trenches of the fashion business, GLS is the place for fashion entrepreneurs to be seen, build community, and get the tools to make your vision reality.
