Mia Melon is a women's fashion label that designs modern weatherproof outerwear. Thanks to Kickstarter, our backers and retail partners, we have emerged as a niche performance fashion outerwear brand. Along with our popularity has grown a demand for plus sizing. Limited in the past by production minimums for extended sizing we were unable to deliver this option. Our success will allow us to offer three new sizes expertly fit with 1X, 2X and 3X added to STELLA, AVA, JENNA, LORI and WHITNEY in addition to the xs, small, medium, large and XL that we normally offer. There are so many great styles to choose from! Please support this campaign to help fund our NEW Plus-Size production and Fall 17 Collection. Our goal is to have at least 300 Plus-Size rewards.

INTRODUCING NEW EXTENDED SIZING

 So what makes us so different? Is it the on-trend fashion designs or is it high technology to keep you warm and dry in all weather conditions? The answer is BOTH. It all starts out with our custom developed technical streetwear fabrics. 

Our coats are lined with cozy micro fleece fabric to keep you warm. The middle layer is our special weatherproof membrane keeping the wind a water out, but still allowing your body to breath.

Finally the first protection against mother nature is a fabric treatment on the outside of the fabric called Durable Water Repellency (DWR). This makes the water bead off the garment. 

 

Our products are lightweight and great for travel. They are easy to roll up and put in a carry-on suit case while still leaving room for everything else you need.

Fashion Design - Our products are designed in Portland, Oregon where our head designer Nina Bucci lives and operates Suite 6 Boutique.

 

MIA MELON + ONE MAN OUTERWEAR Sweet Clothing is a small company that designs modern weatherproof outerwear. We offer the best alternative to less appealing traditional rain-wear. Our designs are timeless and will stay on trend for years to come. We are in a very capital intensive industry with a niche group of products that serves our customers very well. To keep the costs down for affordability reasons, we need to make hundreds at at time. We hope that one day, one of these campaigns will not only support the project we are trying to finance, but maybe help finance the company so it can hire some more staff and be far more productive. This will help us emerge. Thank you in advance for taking a look at our latest campaign. I hope you are compelled to support it. For those that have backed previous campaigns, we thank you! from the bottom of our hearts. You are the reason we are in business and why we are starting to thrive.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

Happy Campers- "Now that I have owned this essential coat for about a year - well, not quite I guess, I just wanted to tell you that it is absolutely the best. Utilitarian, functional, warm, dry, handsome. I love it. Much success to you and yours."

KL says: That is SO awesome, Todd!! Totally unexpected, and totally so very much "you" and your team - the best! Thank you, thank you! 
I truthfully have never loved coats the way I find myself loving and enjoying the ones you create. I find it hard to believe how many I have purchased from you (via Kickstarter and directly from your online store). What is wonderful is that I wear them all! Truly! Black, gray, brown, hoodie (reversible and not) - the high quality construction, the first class designs, the innovative fabrics (I love waterproof!), keep me coming back.

Omg! I got the coat already today...it's perfect, even better than I thought.  It fits like you custom  Made it for me. Let it rain! Very happy!

B. Parker  Waaaaa, omg, guys, thx so much, it's perfect!! So I just got my jacket 5 minutes ago and I promise to send you a photo next week the latest. I am lying with broken foot so I need some help with taking the pictures but it really arrived just in time for autumn weather we have rolling around Europe for the last 2 days. :)  

…I’ve never seen a raincoat I had to drop everything and order before until I found yours ! Shannon 

….YOU ARE AMAZING!!!! Thank you so much! I promise to spread the word on your brand all over Europe! ;)

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges
In this industry, our business still needs more working capital. We also have factory minimums to be able to effectively deliver well priced, quality garments. We will always deliver but the more successful the campaign is, the more resources we have to get the job done quicker. We have brought in a new partner that has brought in some additional working capital. We actually start production long before the campaign is over and will deliver the bulk of rewards on time. The challenge is to make sure we have enough PLUS sizes to go into production of the PLUS sizes. Some colors in some styles maybe cancelled or sold out.
