      Brands with Purpose: HarperSage

      Brands with Purpose: HarperSage

      HarperSage founded and led by Meghan Herman and Leah Grossart in 2019 offers versatile fashion staples inspired by their two signature personas: girly “Harper” and tomboy “Sage.” Each piece is ethically-made in a women-owned factory and designed with your duality in mind.

      The founders grew-up in the 1990’s - a time synonymous with labels for young girls like “girly” and “tomboy.” They met at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and quickly connected over the shared experience of feeling siloed into just one style (and interest, friend group, career - you name it!) Together, they unlocked a big idea that became the foundation of HarperSage: modern women are experiencing a disconnect between the clothes in her closet and the actual moments that influence her style. “Harper” inspired pieces are soft, feminine, and made for city-dwellers. “Sage” inspired pieces are strong, casual, and made for adventurers.

      Currently, they proudly produce each and every piece in Delhi, India at a SEDEX certified factory owned and operated by twin sisters, Archana and Arpana, and they have visited and worked alongside them on several occasions! They use soft, high-quality fabrics in their pieces and, where possible, source from markets near their factory to give existing fabrics new life! In 2020 alone, HarperSage used 2,500 yards of deadstock fabric in the production of their styles - a more conscious and sustainable solution to producing new fabrics.

      Brands With Purpose: ONE432

      Brands With Purpose: ONE432

      ONE432 was founded by Ammar Belal and his brother Umar in 2018. Both brothers have Master’s degrees in Fashion, and their fashion journey dates back to when they grew up learning the ropes in their family's manufacturing business in Pakistan. Growing up on the manufacturing side they saw firsthand how the artisans responsible for making clothes are often disenfranchised and voiceless participants in an industry that generates over $1 Trillion a year. So they founded ONE432 to be an "Equal Share" design philosophy, that embodies an unprecedented standard of equality, transparency, and responsibility within the fashion industry. 

      Ammar, ONE432’s designer, was the first individual from South Asia/Middle East region to be offered a place in the prestigious Parsons MFA Fashion Program.  He has won numerous design awards and is now a adjunct professor at Parsons and Columbia.

      Umar built the ONE432 artisan team in Pakistan before receiving a scholarship to attend NYU's Stern School of Business for his MBA. From there, he won the Harold T. Entrepreneurship Award and ONE432 was selected to be featured in Poet & Quant's Most Disruptive MBA Startups of 2020.

      ONE432 shares 50% of the ACTUAL NET PROFITS from each unit sold, with its ARTISANS and sponsoring a child's EDUCATION in Pakistan.

      Empathy is at the core of the company The name ONE432 is a throwback to the days of pager codes, "1432" means "I Love You Too".
