Before graduating fashion design college in May of 2020, MollyKate wore her first creations down the hallways of her elementary school. Her love for designing evolved from sewing costumes for the classroom pets, into prom dresses for her friends, to, only by the grace of God, showing at fashion shows around the country, such as New York Fashion Week.
While studying fashion design and business in her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, MollyKate launched her namesake fashion line with the help of Phoenix Fashion Week's Emerging Designer Bootcamp and the Praxis Emerging Founders Program. When MollyKate's not sewing, you can find her leading bible study, photographing fashion spreads for Focus on the Family's Brio Magazine, or antiquing with her fiancé Gabriel.
Laura was a supermodel back in the days of the Pure Fashion program. In college, she felt God calling her to continue the mission of forming young women's hearts through fashion. That call grew over her years of experience in marketing and project management for think tanks, creative agencies, and nonprofits. In the Fall of 2019, her mentors and peers in the DC Accelerator asked her, "What are you waiting for?"
Having grown up in D.C. and Northern Virginia, Laura is a two-time valedictorian from Oakcrest School and Christendom College. She majored in political science & economics and double minored in classics and philosophy. Laura currently works in marketing and business development. Outside of work, you'll typically find her singing in choir, practicing yoga, or discussing philosophy and theology for hours on end.
True Style was born to meet girls where they are and help them become the women they’re called to be. It empowers them through the practical arts of fashion and personal style, while also inspiring them to cultivate lifelong habits of servant-leaders.
We’ve experienced firsthand how finding beautiful, tasteful clothing that is affordable and appropriate can be extremely time-consuming. Our consumerist culture bombards us with false images of beauty and imposes harmful standards on women: how they should dress, how they should act around men, how they should use their gifts and talents.
True Style offers resources and mentorship for girls who want to understand themselves better and then apply that knowledge to their own wardrobes and to their lives as daughters, friends, and girlfriends. Because we get to know one another through fun, personal events, we’re forming a close community of girls that can support each other both in high school and beyond.
To form young women who will inspire others by their dress and by their character.
Isabella comes from a family of intellectuals and artisans intoxicated with beauty. Growing up doing hand crafts and sewing, she developed a particular interest in fashion since her family hosted many exchange students. Spending over five months living abroad in France confirmed Isabella’s commitment to intentional dressing and quality clothing.
Isabella developed her sense of the beautiful from experiencing nature more than fashion runways. She graduated valedictorian from Christendom College, majoring in Philosophy and minoring in Theology, and is currently pursuing an MA in Theology. At present, Isabella works for Christendom Advancement, but she continues to philosophize about beauty. When not at work, you will find her enjoying nature, playing piano, sewing, or catching up on homework.
WE ARE A FAITH CENTERED AND female founded company inspired to help others.
