My Social Canvas is a social-impact fashion brand whose products are inspired by girls, for girls. Our mission is to connect with girls ages 16-24 to equip and empower them to design the life and career they love.
My Social Canvas was founded to celebrate real, everyday girls. In a society where celebrities, social media influencers, and supermodels are often featured and honored, MSC places value on the everyday 16 to 24-year-old girl during a stage when she is going through volatile transitions in life and school. MSC serves as a mentor, big sister, and best friend as she navigates the immense pressures that occur during high school, college, and the early parts of her career. MSC invites this girl into every part of its brand – including her ideas in the inspiration and design of their products. MSC validates her talents and her worth, easing the pressure of transitions, and equipping her with the resources and confidence she needs to design the life she loves.
Together with our sister non-profit organization ‘Design the Life You Love’ we combine scholarship and design opportunities for women and girls by producing and selling selected designs to support women and girls globally.
