At ModCloth, we believe every outfit is an opportunity to express yourself. Started in 2002 by college student, Susan Gregg Koger, we’ve grown from a tiny dorm room to become a truly innovative fashion retailer. We now have three offices across the country, hundreds of amazing employees, and more brick-and-mortar stores on the way! But our passion goes beyond great clothes. Since day one, we’ve championed values of female empowerment and inclusivity. We’re dedicated to serving our community of women by celebrating their stories and offering a full range of sizes. Because everyone deserves to fit right in.
