inclusion

size should not exclude women and men from accessing fashionable attire. our aim is to include.  we offer our clients stylish clothes that are accessible to people of all body types. careful consideration is given to each garment to ensure its construction, sizing, and style will be flattering on a number of different body types.


empowerment

xvi I xiv seeks to empower underemployed and under-served women in transition - specifically those with a criminal background or victims of domestic abuse - by providing them with part-time and full-time employment opportunities that pay above minimum wage.  where appropriate or necessary, training is provided at no cost to team members. our focus is on employing women in the Philadelphia region.  


love

our company was founded based on 1 cor. 16:14 which says "do everything in love."  each garment is "made with love" by our talented team of seamstresses. we strive to operate in love in every area of our business, from sales, to production, to delivery, to client service. it is our goal that every xvi I xiv client would feel the love.
