Our Mission

You Don’t Need More.
You Need More Meaningful.

It's our mission to serve with meaning and purpose. At Bitter Grace, we are redefining fashion and sustainability through wholehearted conscious living, offering tools that enable you to feel deeply connected with your authentic self and the person you want to become. We empower and guide you to embody the future version of you, develop meaningful connections, and leave the world better than you found it.

We are driven by the following 3 tenants:


Taking care of those who take care of others. 10% of your purchase is donated to Women’s HQ, a local Washington, D.C. organization. Women’s HQ rebuilds communities where domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors of color reclaim their voice, transform their lives, and disrupt poverty through unique wellness programs, career enhancement efforts, and strategic financial guidance.


The secret to great style is clarity on who you are and who you want to become and deliberately choosing pieces that embody the future vision of you. Our mission at Bitter Grace is to help humans gain vital awareness of themselves and provide actionable tools to help rebuild or reinforce that image, whether through a Personalized Styling Session or Inner Elegance Circle events.


Clothing can be a part of the solution when it comes to creating a paradigm shift in consumption patterns. We define sustainable fashion as wearability and longevity. With our capsule collections, we only support global micro businesses that employ women, provide financial stability, empower through education opportunities, and bring awareness to ancient artistry.


We are committed to taking steps, big and small, to lessening the impact on our environment. Sustainability and ethical fashion is a long term goal at Bitter Grace and we're always looking for ways to learn more, educate, and do more for our planet's future!

We invest in energy-efficient lighting in our space. We use LED lights to conserve energy and UV lighting to sanitize our garments and fitting rooms.

We believe that mass-production leads to mass-consumption. We produce low stock quantities in order to stay within a consumption pattern that lessens our impact on the environment. 80% of our inventory is transitional for all seasons.

Our ethos is quality over quantity. We care about quality materials and garments with a long lifespan. Investing in timeless styles reduces the likelihood that your garments end up in a landfill.

We limit the use of plastic in our space. Our bamboo shopping bags are biodegradable. In the near future, we want to offer reusable tote bags as an alternative.

We encourage our customers to return their empty candle jars to us so that we can reuse them to make new candles. We want to create a circular economy wherever possible.


We aim to be transparent about sustainability in our supply chains. Our cashmere is manufactured through an eco-conscious process to reduce wastage.
