Alexis and business partner Tawni have a shared passion for using creative tailoring skills to upcycle thrift-based clothing into unique and expressive apparel. While originally only doing so for themselves and friends, and an appreciation for their environmental movement, a vibrant brand quickly grew. They name their unique business Unmatched Apparel. As the two experienced greater demand for their products, Unmatched Apparel’s presence on social media started to gain a lot of traction. While launching an online platform for promotion and utilizing E-Commerce, they wanted to make sure they fulfilled the correct steps to become an official business. The two reached out to the Maine Small Business Development Centers for assistance.
Raynor Large, Maine SBDC Business Advisor at Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments, assisted Alexis and Tawni on the start-up process for Unmated Apparel. Raynor provided them with clarity on setting up an LLC and helped them lay the foundation for a long-term and successful business.
Alexis and Tawni have officially launched their website for Unmatched Apparel and are prepared to take the Fashion industry head-on. Environmentally friendly conscious consumers are increasing in the U.S. and Unmatched Apparel is able to fit that need with 100% sustainable, reworked, and specialized apparel for anyone and everyone. Shop Unmatched!
