Be Slow. Be Fashionable.
Shell N, a petite fashion brand, founded by Michelle Nguyen in 2019 is rooted in two important principles: fit and sustainability. We offer ready to wear collections and custom orders using sustainable and ethical practices.
Michelle offers clothing specifically for petite women because she recognizes the lack of options in the market. Over 70% of women are considered petite, however, retailers are selling to taller women leaving petite shoppers frustrated and left out. She understands that disparity and wants to give petite women a place to shop with confidence. Simply put – stylish clothes with a modern touch that actually fits.
Michelle understands the struggles of finding clothes that fit her body shape. She learned to tailor clothes herself for many years and eventually started designing and constructing her own wardrobe for over 10 years now. She believes creating fashion shouldn’t mean harming the environment or the people in it. This led her to find a brand that combines the ideas of modern design and tailoring to produce well fitting clothing while being sustainable.
Our brand is also an advocate for sustainable fashion that takes into consideration materials and labor involved when creating clothing. Shell N uses natural fiber fabric from cotton, lyocell, and silk just to name a few. We seek to source from ethical suppliers and manufacturers.
