MONTE's founder and designer, Dawn McKnight, sought to create a feminine, bright, and fun brand ethically sourced locally in Los Angeles. Each MONTE piece is designed to celebrate femininity and encourage women to embrace themselves through bright colors, beautiful florals, and their own inner light.
A MONTE woman is mindful, loves fashion, herself, others and the environment. MONTE designs are fresh, feminine, sexy, sophisticated and fun. They are made with attention, care and quality which are all important to the woman that wears them.
Having operated in women's fashion retail for 15 years Dawn was well aware that traditional production practices overseas are often inhumane and can negatively impact the environment and society. For this reason, all MONTE pieces are ethically sourced and locally produced with Dawn overseeing the quality control of every collection. MONTE embodies everything that the mindful fashion maven strives for her in her wardrobe.
