SHEIN X, the initiative by global online fashion and lifestyle retailer SHEIN to empower independent artists and designers, has unveiled its latest collaboration with luxury fashion label MONSE. The SHEIN X MONSE Collection, introduced at a private event in NYC, showcases designs by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia. As part of this partnership, Kim and Garcia mentored five independent fashion designers, longstanding collaborators with SHEIN X, to co-create and launch the collection. Additionally, the collaboration aims to support Dress for Success Greater New York City, an organization dedicated to empowering women through professional attire, support networks, and development tools for economic independence.

Founded in 2015 by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, who also serve as co-creative directors at Oscar de la Renta, MONSE is celebrated for its innovative fashion featuring deconstructed tailoring and asymmetrical designs. Their collaboration with SHEIN X has produced a collection blending SHEIN’s trendy style with MONSE’s iconic aesthetic. This partnership includes designs by five independent designers mentored by Kim and Garcia: Oxana Goralczyk (France), Jade Breyon (USA), Mathilde Lhomme (France), Aliya Brown (USA), and KL Allen (USA), delivering high-fashion looks at accessible prices to SHEIN shoppers.

 Laura Kim, co-creative director at MONSE said, “At MONSE, we are passionate about inclusivity in fashion, which is why we partnered with SHEIN X on a collection that offers an accessible price point for all. As a supporter of Dress for Success’ mission, this project has been extra rewarding because it not only celebrates creativity and diversity in fashion, but also supports a cause that is close to my heart. MONSE’s collections focus on deconstructing menswear for women. We want to empower them through our designs, so they feel powerful to take on anything. We are proud to be part of a collaboration that uplifts women and emerging designers alike.”

As part of their partnership, SHEIN also contributed to Dress for Success Greater New York City through a donation. This funding will aid in expanding the organization’s efforts, particularly supporting programs like in-person styling sessions. These sessions are crucial for women aiming to improve their professional appearance, build confidence, and optimize their wardrobe, empowering them to succeed both professionally and personally.

Jennifer Wuerz, Interim Director at Dress for Success Greater New York City said, “We are excited to be working with SHEIN X and MONSE on this unique collaboration that allows Dress for Success Greater New York City to continue supporting women by providing them with the tools they need to thrive in the workforce. This collection not only exemplifies the fusion of high fashion and accessibility but also underscores a shared commitment to empowering women.”
