Founder and Creative Director Brandy Wykes founded and runs Mayes NYC to make a plus-sized luxury sustainable clothing brand where “curvy women look sophisticated and confident all while feeling comfortable”.
Mayes NYC, which is certified eco-responsible, sources their fabrics worldwide, including Turkey and Italy, with 75% of their base fabrics being sustainable. The fibers are fully biodegradable, use less water than conventional cotton and generic viscose, and contain a lower carbon footprint with up to 50% fewer emissions in comparison to other textile counterparts.
All of Mayes NYC’s production is in New York City and runs a small inventory. The company even pre-sells their best sellers to ensure they go to a good home.
