I'm Rehanna, the founder and designer of Mae + August. I'm also the order fulfillment team, the marketing team, and the packing and shipping department. You name it I do it!
I live in the small town of Springfield just thirty minutes outside the city of Nashville. It's one of those picturesque towns that still has it's historical square. I love the community that comes with a small town and I strive to incorporate that feeling into every aspect of my life. Including my business. It's more than making clothes. It's making women feel beautiful and empowered to live at their highest potential.
Comfort is important to me. Both is what I wear and surround myself with. That is why I would rather have a quiet night at home watching HGTV than go downtown, and have read Harry Potter more times than I can count. Music is a big source of comfort as well. I love the early 2000s Indie from my youth, 90's throwbacks, or Class Rock that reminds me of car rides with my mom. I have a real weakness for art supplies, fresh flowers, and cinnamon honey lattes. Should I ever have a bad day I'm probably on the hunt for one of those things to lift my spirits. My power color is black so if you ever see me out I'm not emo anymore I just feel like a total boss when I wear that color. 🤪 Although you can still catch me scream singing to Fall Out Boy or MCR.
I believe God puts a calling on our hearts. This brand is one of mine. After four years getting my BFA in Fashion Design and four more years working for several footwear and clothing brands, I finally started my own company. It took several wonderful and encouraging women in my life to convince me to put all of my doubts aside and go after my dream of having my own clothing line. One of my goals is to give that kind of love and encouragement back. I want to help women know their value and beauty through feeling good in the clothes they wear and to change the way we view fashion.
