I have a strong passion to give young girls and women of all ages a way to positively brand themselves.
Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
What happens when a designer and marketing exec gets so tired of seeing tweens, teens and women wearing t-shirts with negative messages emblazoned on the front? If you are Melissa Slaven-Warren, owner and Founder of Meliciously Yours, you quit your day job and design a t-shirt line of your own that offers a positive alternative celebrating the fun, positive, and independent characteristics of women ages 5 to 105. With the June roll out of their first six designs entitled Free, Beauty & Brains, Old Soul, Lady, Trustworthy, and Sensuous, each Meliciously Yours design is hand illustrated and each shirt comes with a story – and a history lesson about the empowerment of women over the ages. Prices range from $34.99 to $39.99 and are available at http://www.melicioustees.com.
“I have a strong passion to give young girls and women of all ages a way to positively brand themselves. I created this line after seeing a twelve year old girl wearing a t-shirt that had ’I’m High Maintenance’ written across the front,” explains Ms. Warren. “I decided then and there that it was time to offer an alternative to those narcissistic, self- centered and often unempowering messages that are displayed on t-shirts today but at the same time I wanted to make sure that it was trendy, and appealing to fashion-conscious women. A product they could wear proudly and embrace their true personality.”
Ms. Slaven-Warren plans to introduce a new t-shirt every couple of months and also has made a commitment that her t-shirt suppliers adhere to a strict social responsibility such as no forced labor or child labor practices, no discrimination and health and safety guidelines. She has also integrated eco-friendly alternatives into her line such as an organic crew which is manufactured with 100% organic cotton.
