Bishop Collective co-founders Mai Vu and Dimitri Koumbis launched Bishop to provide a more responsible solution to the current retail model- one that is stagnant and dependent on less than humane international labor practices.
After many passionate conversations during their time teaching college level fashion design and merchandising courses, both decided that the only way to make a change was to spearhead the change themselves, taking the responsibility off of designers and placing it where it truly belongs- with the retailer.
Six months later, Bishop Collective was born, offering American manufactured goods that eloquently combine fashion, art and lifestyle into an ecommerce platform. The goal of Bishop Collective is to not only provide artistically designed and beautifully tailored garments, but to advocate for stronger corporate social responsibility among retailers- all while bringing manufacturing back to the States. Bishop Collective is redefining retail and redefining American made.
