Hello #TallGoddesses, and happy RELAUNCH MONTH!
Over the course of the next three weeks, we will be dropping a limited amount of our most popular Basics Collection pieces as well as some new complimentary pieces to add to your wardrobe. It's been a crazy last eight months building up to this moment - and I honestly cannot believe how far we've come since this idea was hatched over a year ago.
Although some of you have been with us since the start, I want to bring you all up to speed and highlight the reasons why I created Megan Reilley in the first place.
I launched Megan Reilley in July of 2018 with the hopes of bringing more sustainably- and ethically-made clothing options to tall women all over the world. During my Masters Thesis research (for Human Rights) three years ago, I travelled around Southeast Asia and Nepal to study, talk, learn, and write - and what I saw was absolutely eye-opening. The Fast Fashion industry has done a considerable amount of damage to both people and the earth, and I realized that this was due to us supporting this large companies.
I wanted to make a difference somehow - and three years later, that has become the backbone of Megan Reilley. We as the next generation of tall women could make an impact by shopping smarter - but I had to give us the tools to do so.
The Megan Reilley Basics Collection was designed by me and made in LA using sustainably-grown fabrics, in a clean and well-lit factory with workers who are paid LA living wage. The new pieces we are bringing on by partnering with ética is all made in Mexico with the same high standards for fabric and working conditions. This, other than making clothes that fit all the measurements we as tall women have, was and still is my MAIN value and mission that I wanted to uphold and will not falter from.
As a result, our pieces range in price from $75-$185. The cost of these clothes is on par to other pieces that are made ethically in North America - the unique aspect, though, is that they are all tailored for tall women! You can feel good about your purchase knowing we've done the research and the work on our side to create the best pieces possible for you.
This started as an idea and has become a reality - and we couldn't do it without your support. This started as a one-woman idea, and the support I've had from all of you has been the driving force behind us moving forward. Supporting women-owned businesses is a huge compliment and a necessary practice we should all uphold moving forward - because women are changing the world, as I'm sure you've noticed!
I am SO excited and proud to look back over the last year and see how far we've come. I can't wait grow and expand to create even more options for tall women everywhere. Thank you for shopping and spreading the word about Megan Reilley.
