MUZZI NYC IS A SMALL, NEW YORK CITY BASED, PRIVATE LABEL BRAND WITH A FOCUS ON READY-TO-WEAR JACKETS AND COATS. A FEW YEARS AGO, I BEGAN TO NOTICE A FEW THINGS WITHIN THE LUXURY FASHION INDUSTRY I JUST COULDN'T STAND BEHIND. I DIDN'T FEEL THAT WE WERE ADAPTING WITH THE TIMES AND MODERNIZING AT THE PACE IN WHICH THE REST OF OUR SOCIETY HAS EVOLVED TECHNOLOGICALLY. I FOUND THERE WAS A GROWING CLASS DIVIDE BETWEEN THE COMPANY AND THE CONSUMER, WHEN IN REALITY WE ARE ALL THE SAME AND WE ALL HAVE WORTH IN THIS WORLD. I NOTICED THE MAINSTREAM LABELS ONLY CATERING TO A CERTAIN TYPE OF WOMAN AND NOT CELEBRATING ALL PEOPLE ACROSS THE BROAD SPECTURM OF GENDER IDENTITY IN WHICH WE FALL. THE MAIN PLAYERS IN THIS GAME ARE DOING EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT RATHER THAN LET PEOPLE IN. THEY HAVE BECOME SO DEPENDENT UPON THEIR NAME RECOGNITION THAT THE EMPHASIS ON BEAUTY, AESTHETIC, AND CREATIVITY THAT THIS INDUSTRY WAS BUILT ON ARE SLOWLY DISAPPEARING. CLOTHES ARE ALL MANUFACTURED IN CHINA OR OTHER OVERSEAS LOCATIONS WHERE WORKERS ARE TREATED POORLY AND PAID UNFAIRLY.
WE AREN'T TRULY CONNECTING WITH OUR CONSUMERS AND EFFECTIVELY RESPONDING TO THEIR WANTS, NEEDS, AND DESIRES. RATHER THAN BECOME DISCOURAGED BY THESE ISSUES, I DECIDED THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO STEP IN AND MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD. I'M JUST ANOTHER MILLENNIAL WHO GREW UP IN NEW YORK CITY WITH A PASSION FOR THIS GAME, AND I WANT TO HAVE A FAIR CHANCE IN PLAY. I LOVE THIS CITY AND ALL OF ITS DIVERSITY AND I WANT TO SHARE THAT WITH EVERYONE I CAN. I WANT TO BE A VOICE FOR THE OUTSIDERS WHO WANT A COMMUNITY WHERE WE ALL FEEL LOVED, ACCEPTED, AND LIKE WE BELONG. WITH THESE GOALS IN MIND, I STARTED MUZZI NYC, A LUXURY FASHION LABEL CREATED FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU, WHERE ALL PEOPLE OF ALL KINDS ARE EMBRACED FOR EXACTLY WHO THEY ARE. WELCOME.
