Mom of four Kristen Flather is on a mission to make girls feel comfortable wearing what they love. That’s why she and husband, Fred, created Makoshey, a Chicago-based clothing company that features tops and bottoms to give girls ages 4-14 more options than the girly stuff major brands say they should wear.
“I was frustrated trying to buy clothes for our eldest daughter, because I didn’t like the styles of what was available online and in stores. There weren’t a lot of options out there,” she says in a news release. “We shopped in the boys department for everything for her because it opened up more options for colors and designs she liked, but the clothes were cut for boys’ bodies.”
Now she has options made for a girl’s body. The line includes tees, raglans, sweatshirts, sweatpants and shorts.
