See how two native Cincinnatians give back to the state that they so proudly call home through fashion and philanthropy.
Clothe Ohio was fashioned around the co-founders’ three greatest loves: Giving back, fashion, and their love for Ohio.
Dustin and Elliott Fisher created Clothe Ohio to “give when you get.” Every order placed is custom made for the person that orders it. Then, with every order, an item is given to an Ohioan in need or an Ohio-based charity.
After 10 years of being in the apparel industry and running their first company, DT Fashion, the Fishers decided to take on a new challenge. The idea of Clothe Ohio came to them several years ago, and they officially launched January 2015.
According to the Fishers, it wasn’t until then that they felt like they were in the right place and had the right team to make it happen and grow it successfully. They decided that 2015 would be the year they launched to give Ohioans a way to express their state pride through cool, unique, comfortable clothing all while helping out neighbors in need.
“The ability to give is an amazing gift,” Dustin says. “Working with and meeting the organizations, adults, and children that we are directly helping is a reward that cannot be explained. Helping those in need is a huge passion for our organization and we hope to one day, with everyone’s help, literally Clothe Ohio.”
The Fishers just dropped of the first 500 Clothe Ohio t-shirts and sweatshirts at the Homeless Families Foundation in Columbus. Dustin says they’ve been humbled to meet so many amazing people fighting Ohio homelessness, and are more passionate than ever about Clothe Ohio’s mission and its future.
As spring approaches, Clothe Ohio has many new designs that will be launching. Ohioans can keep an eye on the Clothe Ohio Facebook and Instagram accounts as well as clotheohio.com. Know of an Ohio-based organization in need of apparel assistance? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
