Denise DeMarchis is founder and CEO of Matilda Jane Clothing (MJC), a kitchen table startup that quickly grew into a national children’s clothing business. Since the age of 12, Denise has held a passion for art and design and spent a decade showcasing her painted furniture and clothing line at regional art fairs before launching MJC with its core values of heart, loyalty and extreme generosity. Denise was even recently named one of Fort Wayne, Indiana’s Top 40 Under 40.
The quality and care that goes into Matilda Jane Clothing starts before you even open your box. The outside of each and eveery shipping box is adorned with beautiful MJC stickers! Once you get into your box each piece of clothing you purchase is in a pretty tulle bag with MJC’s logo.

The Apple Pie Lap Dress.
The Ruby Ellie Dress.
And the Swiss Miss Paneled Knot Dress. (You can find the full review of this Matilda Jane Dress at Real Mom Reviews!)
A key guiding principle at MJC is the company’s strong focus on “extreme generosity” and random acts of kindness. As an extension of MJC’s desire to give back the company also actively involves its customers in ongoing charitable giving efforts – most recently, Matilda Jane Clothing asked customers where to donate in its “Spread the Love” initiative. The annual campaign involved surprise giveaways to 100+ deserving families, as well as smaller giveaways to 300 individuals, a $50,000 expression of MJC’s heartfelt thanks to its loyal customer base. Despite MJC’s strong online presence – more than 40,000 Facebook fans, a thriving blog, and a website that attracts more than 70,000 unique visitors monthly, the company has bucked the trend and chosen not to have an e-commerce store. MJC sales are made directly though a Trunk Keeper, a representative who gets to know her customers personally. The exclusive sale of clothing by Trunk Keepers is a wonderful direct selling model through which Denise is able to pay forward business opportunities for entrepreneurial women driven by creativity and relationship building.
