We are excited to have Louise Vongerichten Ulukaya, Founder of sustainable childrenswear brand, Mon Coeur, on The Style That Binds Us podcast! Before launching Mon Coeur in January 2021, Louise worked with her father, Chef Jean-Georges’, at his restaurants, Mercer Kitchen & Chef’s Club. Louise married Hamdi Ulukaya in 2018, Founder of Chobani, and they welcomed their first son Miran later that year.
After Miran’s birth, Louise decided to create a brand that cares for the environment, respects the people making it, and that looks and feels good while being accessible for all. Their motto is, “Kids clothing that lasts, so the planet does too.” Mon Coeur has been featured in WWD, Fast Company, The Zoe Report, Gotham and more. In this podcast episode, you’ll get the scoop on how this brand came to be, how she is working to make childrenswear more sustainable, the design process, how we can be more sustainable in our every day lives and more. Listen to the episode here.
Here are some of our favorite Mon Coeur styles:
