Dawn Verbrigghe, owner and founder Moi-Même

Dawn Verbrigghe is the owner/founder of Moi-Même, a Manhattan-based firm that designs and tailors custom suits for professional women. Dawn came up with the idea out of necessity: she needed a few well-fitted suits to wear to meet clients but was too tall to fit into the pre-hemmed slacks in department and specialty stores. So she designed suits that fit her — and became the basis for a new line. After two years of research and product development, she launched the company’s first collection in October 2007. A two-piece custom suit from Moi-Meme starts at just over $500.

Dawn worked as a graphic designer for a couple of years before switching to marketing – the client side of graphic design. After a few years she decided to go to graduate school to study business and got her MBA from Columbia Business School and immediately began considering entrepreneurial ventures. She is a part-time faculty member in the Design and Management program at Parsons School of Design and a columnist for 85 Broads Magazine.
