Mia Melon is a women's clothing label based in Vancouver, BC. In the Fall of 2011, we launched our weatherproof coats. Since then, demand has been growing 300% each season. Now is the time to listen to our customer and focus on what we do best!
We have wholesale orders coming from some of the most influential boutiques across North America...however we need the financial resources to go into production and to start developing the next collection. Your pledge will ensure that Mia Melon's vision will become a reality. Pledges over and above the requested amount will go towards hiring more staff, and allowing our designer more resources to grow our dream. If all goes well, next season we will be able to expand our offerings and launch a men's fashion weatherproof coat collection.
What is a fashion weatherproof jacket??
We specialize in waterproof, wind proof and breathable coats which are highly functional, yet fashion forward. We pay close attention to the details in design and the quality fabrics used in each piece.
How do we make the fabric waterproof?
After sourcing fashionably appealing exterior shell fabrics, we use a cozy micro fleece on the interior shell of the coat. Bonded in between the two fabric layers is a poly membrane that functions similar to your skin. The membrane is both waterproof and wind proof.
How do we get water to bead off of cotton fabric?
We use a heat process treatment known as DWR, which is sprayed onto the fabric and then baked under a massive oven. Although it helps with water resistance, this process is not wind proof. That function comes from the special membrane that we use.
How do we keep the water from penetrating the seams?When the coats are sewn together, we bind the seams inside, so that the water stays out, and you stay dry. You will stay dry 99.9% of the time.
Lab tests done in Hong Kong and through the US Customs and Border Patrol have certified that our fabrics have waterproof and windproof capabilities. No more worrying about the elements...we've got you covered.
Fashion Forward Designs - We all know that functionality matters when it comes to weatherproof outerwear...but looking great never hurts! The designers have all come from design specific backgrounds, rather than sports-centric. Lots of time, effort and research goes into the theme and mood of each season. We want you to choose Mia Melon coats because they look good, not just because they work so well in any all types of weather.
As Seen In:
Here is a closer look at the goodies you will receive if you pledge our project!
Sizes available in the coats are XS - XL. These run pretty true to size, XS being approximate to a size 2 and an XL being approximate to a size 12. At the end of the project, we will send all of our pledges a survey along with a size chart and accurate measurements. Colours vary depending on the style you choose -- check the details on the pledge sidebar to the right, or you can contact us if you have any questions.
Here is a general size chart for our coats - you can use this to get an idea on which size would work best for you.
Remember, we want to make sure you are happy with your reward, so you will be able to exchange sizes if you need.
Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges
No need to worry - we are an organized company with manufacturers already in place. Unfortunately, there is always a chance that there could be a few production concerns, such as not hitting the factory minimums or not having enough demand for certain styles. We will need the minimum requested funding to put the first production run in progress. Since we are also filling wholesale orders, we will already have stock on hand - so if we are needing extra stock on hand to fulfill the rewards, we will have it all ready. If we happen to run short on styles, sizes or colour ways, we will substitute your first choice for your second choice.
If we run a very successful campaign and we have more demand than anticipated, we may be a little late shipping ALL the rewards. Not to worry, we will get it in your hands as soon as possible!! We will ship on a first come basis.
And remember - our customers are the most important - and we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
