About this project

Every girl wants to feel beautiful both inside and out, but may get lost along the way.

Who Is She?

She is a young girl ranging in age from ten to beyond twenty. Having come to a very important transitional period in her life, she is starting to see herself differently. She wants to feel confident and beautiful both inside and out. All that she needs to help herself achieve this is some reassurance of her own inner strength and beauty.

What Is The Issue?

Traditionally, women’s fashion promotes an image of the “perfect” woman. The result is a continuing assault on the self-esteem of our daughters, nieces, and friends. They are taught that they should strive for the ideal of unattainable perfection and falling short is unacceptable. The damage from this is heart breaking when it impacts their emotional well-being and potentially fatal when it affects their behavior.

Recently, a growing recognition that beauty spawns from the person, not their outward appearance has taken hold in our world.  This is the core of our difference – we celebrate inner beauty and are asking you to join in that celebration.

Who Are We?

Perfect As U Are is dedicated to making high quality products that reinforce an affirmative message about the beauty of individuality.  Our mission is to produce products that help women and young girls boost their confidence and embrace their beauty through continuous affirmation of their undeniable and immeasurable value. We encourage a positive self-image and help to build self-esteem by providing her with the reassurance that she can take on the world and love life doing so.

We were formed by mothers and the families of girls that have been distraught watching their girls suffer from the devastation caused by this lifelong attack on their girls’ self-esteem. The battle cry has been sounded – we are fighting back.

Our products represent a tangible expression of the positive message we are  spreading by incorporating unique, flattering designs which appeal to our market as well as incorporating our trademarked "Be  YOU, You're BEAUTIFUL" print in an effort to spread not only our message, but also our brand.

Why We Are Asking For Help

We, like any other startup, have committed our lives and personal funds to this business, but it’s not enough. We need your help to launch a marketing campaign and to increase our production, so that we can reach every girl in need of help realizing her own inner beauty.

Our Products are:

Focused on our girls. It’s about them, not us.  Every product is s message to them.  Our initial collection of socks, tee shirts and shorts help them declare to the world that I AM CONFIDENT, I AM FEARLESS, I AM BEAUTIFUL

Inspired by our girls. Our product ideas come from girls. We ask every day for design input and new ideas. We create products with affirmations that resonate with them and appeal to their fashion sense.

Dedicated to our children. We make these products with our children in mind to tell them every day that they do not need to conform. Beauty comes from within.

Remind yourself how amazing you are every time you get dressed with our "I AM..." collection no show socks.
