Grounded in the belief that women deserve better than fast fashion, twin sisters Mica and Maya Caine teamed up to create MIVE. The game-changing digital marketplace will launch on February 26. MIVE holds a commitment to “life-affirming fashion,” an approach that respects the planet and workers alike. This type of fashion is not only more sustainable but created ethically. Shoppers will be able to purchase carbon-neutral pieces, for example. Additionally, MIVE will offer size-inclusive items while providing a personalized virtual measuring experience. Even more, some items will be made-to-measure ensuring a perfect fit every time.
