Fashion design has always been in Maddi’s DNA. When Maddi was a teenage she would buy clothes from thrift stores and alter them to fit her. That resourcefulness became a passion to construct new designs and clothing. Now Maddi is launching Opaline Hue, a collection of simple, versatile and sustainable sweaters. Her pre-sale runs through April 12th.
We are excited to support Maddie and watch her business grow.
Start-up: Opaline Hue
What inspires you: Hearing people’s hearts. People are so intricate and complex! When I have the privilege to hear someone share their story I am always grateful and inspired!

Akimbo, Conan Needs a Friend, Last Podcast on the Left
Watching The Bachelor is a classic guilty pleasure. What I’m really guilty about is how much bachelor recap content I consume.
Sustainability in fashion is…
Hard to nail down. I believe it considers the whole supply chain, the business model, leadership -everything. The word sustain in itself is about considering the future and expecting future health. It touches all parts of a brand.
Fashion Pet Peeve:
Combat boots with a zipper on the side. Women’s clothing with fake pockets.
What does it mean to be an ethical entrepreneur?
Oh my gosh, I couldn’t say I know the answer to that. What I have been focusing on is ‘kindness’. It’s a more approachable goal for me within businesses. For example, kindness speaks to people in working conditions and their pay. Kindness also speaks to how I treat people when they’ve made a mistake at my expense.
