Founder Bio & Purpose
Dina Chavez - Founder & Designer of SixChel
After years spent building my own fashion label from the ground up, a family tragedy led me to reevaluate life – and business – as I’d always known it. I closed that company and spent 1 year creating an entirely new brand focused on apparel that’s made ethically for the modern woman on the go.
Growing up in an era when the fashion industry marketed women by making them feel as if they were not enough, encouraged me to create a brand that included all women - to "be you" in "your own style". Of equal importance, was the need to fix the current situation with pollution, inhuman practices and unfair wages within the industry.
I realized that in order to create change, there needed to be a proactive approach for consumers. The goal is to make ethical fashion more accessible to the masses. Using fabric of recycled and sustainable fibers, paying fair wages to US garment workers and giving customers the option to send their purchased clothes back into us for basic repairs, will give our customers an accomplished feeling that they have had a hand in making a better tomorrow.
