Sky's the Limit

Marian Kwon and Monika Rose are friends and mothers who worked with big brands like Gap, Design Within Reach, Disney and LeapFrog before they founded Epic Sky. The two Mill Valley women found that clothing stores appealing to girls their daughters’ age lacked a positive message and launched their Sausalito-based venture with the goal of empowering teen and tween girls. Epic Sky’s model centers on the creative visions and desires of Gen Z girls (ages 10–15) and lets them make those visions a reality. Joining an all-female adult management team, girls serve on an advisory board and are responsible for designing and developing clothes, accessories and content that are then sold online.
