Hi, I'm Melanie.

I have over 8 years of experience working in Asia in supply chain management, product development, and production for brands like Eileen Fisher, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, AG Jeans, Abercrombie & Fitch, LandsEnd, Opening Ceremony, Citizens of Humanity, Tommy Hilfiger, Club Monaco, Walmart, Target, KMart, Macy's, Hunter Boot, Alex Mills by Alex Drexler, Nili Lotan, and others.

For years I was a key contributor to the never-ending cycle of fast fashion. Two years ago I left my position as Director of Product Development and founded virtue + vice with the goal of doing better.

I create content from my experience in the fashion industry and overseas to educate consumers and brands on what really goes into making a product, offer insider fashion tips for shopping ethically and sustainably, and foster, somtimes difficult, conversations.

I have been featured at SXSW, in Forbes, WWD, Parents Magazine, and LiveStrong.
