From the ones that got away to the ones that found each other
Where an interest in fashion never minimizes one's intellect.
Man Repeller is a cross-media platform that celebrates female empowerment with the same conviction that Jay Z and Beyonce celebrate Blue Ivy's birthday
Man Repeller is a judgement free zone where a joke is always the preferred method of communication but no topic is off limits for intellectual dissection. Our community is encouraged to demand compassion from themselves, explore their curiosities and if inspired, to use personal style as a way to better understand and therefore navigate the world around them. Laugh at yourself and love yourself and celebrate small victories because there is no “small” success.
Mission: Sartorial freedom.
