What started five years ago in Mary O’Conner’s mother’s basement has blossomed into an inspirational story that is touching the lives of little girls and small communities across the nation. Mary’s dream was two-part: (1) to be able to offer children who dream of becoming fashion designers the skills and confidence to make that dream a reality, and (2) to create a children’s clothing line that allows girls to express and embrace themselves. Through her determination and the support of her friends, family, and community, Mary Helen Studios and Mary Helen Clothing both became huge hits known for its novelty, quality, and design.
Today, Mary Helen and Carousel Brands have partnered up to create Mabel + Honey, a children’s clothing line that is fun, unique, and age-appropriate. The Spring 2017 Collection offers four beautiful knit collections, viewable here, that packs a statement punch with its vibrant colors and unique prints. What you get are looks that are traditionally sweet with a fun twist of cool modernity.
Mary Helen Studio will be doing all the design, sample-making, and photoshoots in-house while concurrently expanding their sewing classes beyond their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio to local boutiques across the United States. Carousel Brands will handle the marketing and sales of Mabel + Honey, so that Mabel + Honey’s unique and comfortable designs can be available in boutiques nationwide.
Both Mary Helen Studios and Carousel Brands are extremely excited to share our vision of empowering our youth with knowledge and self-expression! If you are a boutique interested in partaking in our adventure, click here to carry the Mabel + Honey line.
