Marie | Wesley (MW) is a consignment shop. We also operate a fashion design incubator and provides fashion design training to the public. MW recruits and employs those individuals who are hard to employ. This unique group of individuals include persons with disabilities, criminal records and other inhibiting characteristics that make them less desirable candidates for most forms of employment. Additionally, MW will recruit fashion designers from local schools and offer opportunities for them to design custom pieces of clothing and accessories under the MW brand name. MW will also offer weekly courses for local residents on sewing and other advanced fashion design techniques.
One hundred (100) percent of the profits generated from MW will go towards expansion of the MW brand across other communities throughout Chicago. One Hundred (100) percent of the profits generated from original merchandise sales will go towards local scholarships for students pursuing careers in fashion design and fashion design related professions.
