Clothing with Purpose: Sustainable, Inclusive & Socially Responsible

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

"Lean into the Hope that comes with Spring. Rejoice in that hope."

I had a blast attending the launch party of Hope Continues, a collection designed by Julie Allen, CEO, Mary Rose NW Boutique Founder, Mary Rose Foundation Author, and Eating Disorder Awareness Activist. Julies energy and mission are contagious and inspiring! Check out the new collection and other sustainable brands she carries at: To hear more about the launch party, look here!

Hope Continues is a size-inclusive (5X-XS), ethically made, sustainable styles for the sexy minimalist. The line consists of a 7 piece capsule collection with the kind human in mind. The collection is for human beings that love style and care about social good. The goal of Hope Continues is to make size inclusion an integral part of the sustainable fashion conversation. With 70% of people identifying as women in the States wearing a size 14 or above, the slow fashion industry must become more inclusive. We are here to bring light to this important issue of fast fashion, size inclusivity, and sustainability.

Each style in our 7 piece capsule collection was made in Los Angeles, CA with the highest regard for humans, animals, and Earth. View our Sustainability/Ethical practices HERE

The collection has been inspired by Greek and Roman Goddesses. Embodying the beautiful, fierce, gentle, and powerfully feminine energy.

About the Book

"Conscious design is a philosophy used at the Peterman Design Firm. We use it to create brands and products that restore and sustain our planet. The Peterman Method for conscious design is the culmination of Ian’s 15+ years working in product development and Jessica’s 20 years in working as a healer and studying regenerative technologies and tools for both people and our planet. Together, we’ve written this book to lay out a culmination of our combined experiences. Our goal is to help other people start looking at the world, and design, in a more conscious way."
