bring light to life with konnexion
KONNEXION Founder Nikki Bari started making clothing for herself when she was in college. She found herself gaining weight from binge eating and needed comfortable clothing to feel confident in. To find oversized, comfortable, everyday styles Nikki had to shop in the men's section. She needed better clothing, clothing that was designed to flatter all body types.
Nikki's problem was not just physical, it was also mental. Confidence doesn't come from just the outside, it comes from within. It was how Nikki felt about herself that made her insecure. Throughout college, Nikki started to learn about meditation, the power of your mind and realized that she was causing her own anxiety and depression with the thoughts she felt.
Konnexion was created for the mental and physical.
Konnexion is sustainable clothing that you will feel comfortable and confident in.
Clothing is beyond underrated. Clothing is 1 of 3 necessities of life, we all wear clothing almost 24/7. Between 80-100 billion pieces of clothing are produced every year. The importance of sustainable fashion is because most garments are being made using fossil fuels and chemicals. When we buy new and get rid of our old clothing so quickly, the old clothes sit in landfills and the chemicals harm the planet. The garment workers who make the clothing are also being harmed by the chemicals used in manufacturing. The current system of "fast fashion" is harming people and the planet.
Designing clothing that can actually enhance how you feel, while also considering the planet and people with ethical production and safety for garment workers, that is the future of fashion.
Konnexion is driven to inspire people to be happy and healthy because Nikki knew what it was like to be unhappy and unhealthy. We are driven to help the planet with the impact of fashion and how people feel every day. If we all feel better as individuals, we will create a better world!
