Megan Denson, owner and designer at MOXLOX, comes from a long line of creatives with a connection to nature. Her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother ran a third generation flower shop in Mobile, AL. Her great-grandmother started the shop from the trunk of her car in the 1950s, a time when women-owned businesses were not widely accepted. The name MOXLOX is a combination of their initials and is meant to be a token of gratitude for the women who came before us, including the original matriarch of organic design, Mother Nature. MOXLOX's colorful, organic designs are inspired by the legacy of their family-run flower shop.
Equality and social justice are intrinsic to our company's framework and promoting these values are at the core of who we are as people. Within our own community, MOXLOX has launched a pilot program to offer life skills training to marginalized youth through our "Schoolhouse Program.” Our goal is to teach underprivileged and at-risk youth principles of entrepreneurship in hopes of offering them a more independent future. Prior to launching MOXLOX, Megan worked for 10 years in New York City as an occupational therapist with high-risk student populations, including non-speaking teens with autism. Our community outreach program offers a unique opportunity to blend fashion and hands-on service, with the hopes of inspiring others.
MOXLOX continues to focus on sustainable processes and production in order to improve its global footprint. We aim to support and partner with organizations that further environmental consciousness and education. All of our frames are built from biodegradable raw materials, such as cellulose acetate, six varieties of real wood, seashell, and titanium, all of which we conscientiously sourced based on long-term environmental impacts. All our frames are BPA free and offer 100% full spectrum UV A/B protection.
