Launched in 2007 as a basics label, Monrow has quickly risen to the top. The ever-growing brand now produces 11 collections a year, which include much more than your average basics. In addition to their women’s collection, collaboration with Amber Valletta; Monrow recently introduced Monrow Men’s, Monrow mini, and Monrow Classics, a return to the essence of label, offering the “classics” (tees, sweatshirts, sweats) in an array of 16 colors. Michelle Wenke and Megan George, constantly inspired by the world around them,  believe that their passion will always lie in MONROW’s fundamentals—quintessential wardrobe staples with attention to fit, fabric, technique and innovative prints. This unparalleled quality and in-depth knowledge of design and manufacturing detail is what makes Monrow a front-runner in the world of contemporary apparel.

Building something from nothing. Watching it grow and seeing the great response to our designs.

Biggest challenge
Every problem and challenge is essentially our responsibility to solve. No matter how many employees we have, everything has to be managed by us at the end of the day.
