THE MERAKI STORY
Past, Present, and Future
Our story began decades ago, when my family emigrated to the United States in search of the American Dream. My Mother was a small business owner that made a living making tailored clothing for men and women locally and internationally. As a child, I modeled her clothing line in fashion shows, never knowing that one day I would follow in her foot steps and have a line of my own.
When I finished college in the U.S, I fell into a life of mediocrity. I knew I was meant to do greater things. I decided to leave my old life behind, put everything on the line, and pursue my passion. Inspired by my two best friends, in 2015, I set out on my journey to live my MERAKI and our company was born.
As MERAKI ALLURE began its journey as a brand, I too began a journey of growth and personal development. Overcoming personal challenges, thus, began a passionate affair that embraced my greater self. I grow more grateful every day for the sacrifices of my mother and my ability to honor our entire family.
Whether you’re dressing for your graduation, your first job interview, a special event or even the day you tie the knot, MERAKI ALLURE will provide quality clothing with world-class service through our personal image consulting. We promote a quality lifestyle and culture that inspires others to awaken, honor, and fulfill their personal passion and greatness within. So please join us on this journey and help us spread the dream worldwide. Cheers to you finding and living in your MERAKI.
