I'm a busy Mum with 2 young children, a proud wife, owner of Mylo and Clio (our Dalmatians) and Coco, our very, very long-haired cat.
I was motivated to create my slow fashion brand, Michelle Schulz, Conditional Collections due to my own daily wardrobe struggles and choosing quality over quantity. As a freelancer and entrepreneur, trying to match outfits that work for school runs, meetings, working from home, coffee catch ups, dog walking and date nights.
My intention is to inspire new conscious shoppers and spark a passion for contemporary sustainable fashion that elevates the wardrobes of modern day working women who are not bound to an office requiring sharp business suits everyday.
The Inevitable Choice, Eco-friendly
Our daughter arrived in this world in 2010. The overwhelming emotional need to protect her from everything harmful kicked in. For the first time, my eyes were truly opened to all the nasty chemicals we blindly put in and on our bodies, so I scrabbled around preaching this news to anyone who would listen to me!
"It was of course only a matter of time before I started to consider the effects of clothing; the human and the environmental costs."
By this time, I was a busy Mum working from home a considerable amount of time and who continued to yearn for a career that never was (so far) as a womenswear designer.
The stars aligned for me as we made a family move to Singapore (where I already had a 30-year family history) and finally I could mix my passion and interests to create my brand, Michelle Schulz.
Be a conscious shopper
Michelle Schulz brings to life conditional clothing collections with a sophisticated British design eye.
"An eco-conscious brand designed to introduce the modern working woman to conscious shopping. Drawing inspiration from diverse time periods and imagery to inspire classic shapes. Casual chic pieces that elevate the wardrobes of us, busy ladies who multi-task their way through the day."
Shop with a clearer conscious and strive to be better, not perfect.
