I didn't start Untucked Workwear to be a fashion designer with dreams of going to New York Fashion Week. I started it initially because I saw a need in the market space for alternative woman's workwear for our jobs with flexible office spaces. Then, the more I learned about the fashion industry this past year in launching and manufacturing my pieces, I also needed to shift how I approached design with the betterment of the entire fashion industry in mind. I'm designing my pieces for a circular fashion industry. An industry that respects the finite resources in our world. Meaning, my products can be turned into new product and continue on a sustainable life cycle for years to come. How am I designing for that? 1) I'm making pieces that are made well and longer-lasting 2) There's no chemical processing in my manufacturing process, thereby reducing plastic residue and other harmful byproducts in the water system 3) The fabric I'm choosing can be 100% recycled and turned into new product after its life cycle. For my next designs, here's how social impact is dictating my decisions. I'm researching to use material from recycled sources from a close-looped production process, such as @thenewdenimproject and I'm in conversation right now about joining forces with a designer collective where together we are looking to employ a highly skilled woman who needs (and deserves) fairer wages from her current factory job. It takes time to design a good product AND the entire fashion industry in mind, but I think it's worth it. I hope you think so too. #liveuntucked #sustainablestyle #gooddesign

A little popped collar hurt nobody. We're stepping into today with ⚑ wearing our Pocketed Smock. Of course, it always helps when @arielleestoria enters into your feed with some words to keep you lifted. #liveuntucked

A year ago we filmed our Kickstarter. 365 days after, we launched, manufactured, and shipped out all pre-orders and continue to keep selling inventory and stay in the green financially. Crazy for a new startup clothing company in Los Angeles. Now, with year #2 in full swing, we're on to expanding and diving deeper into how we can improve our process and create for a more close-looped production chain. Good things in the works. #neversettle #embracechange #madeinla #consciousfashion pc @francisandlouise

About

About

Untucked Workwear is designed for women who embrace a lifestyle filled with gumption and a whole lot of go.

It’s for the entrepreneur who bikes to her self-made studio and the mom championing brighter futures for her kids.

It’s for the changemaker leading a team to solve global challenges and the volunteer beautifying her neighborhood.

It’s for the everyday adventurer exploring the undiscovered and the curious trailblazer navigating an uncharted career path.

Colleen Monroe.

Since 2010, I’ve worked in costume design for film and TV in San Diego, New York and now my current home of Los Angeles. Along the way, I picked up other creative jobs, from floral and interior to event design. Balancing freelancing while biking, climbing stairs, and transferring trains is full of adventure, but not always easy, especially when it comes to choosing my outfit for the day. The busy metropolitan lifestyle moves fast and I need clothes that can keep up with my changing workspaces and commutes.

That’s how the idea for Untucked sparked.

Clothing that would be beautifully crafted with durability and function in mind to help women face their active days with confidence. Pieces that make life just a little more simple from the moment you open your closet to the closing of your laptop.

After hours of research and personal introductions, I found one of the best pattern makers in the country to bring my designs to life in the heart of Los Angeles. Together, we are working to build a wardrobe that I can’t wait to wear and enjoy, and I think you will too!
