"On a hot August day at 3:44pm, my darling daughter was born and my life completely changed. I went from a life of having most things under control and organized to a life of chaos and exhaustion. As I prepared to return back to work after maternity leave I stared at my closet full of clothes and thought- I have nothing to wear. While my pre-pregnancy clothes reflected my personal style they weren't suited for the new me. The new me was a working mother who loves stilettos but now feels much happier wearing a lower heel height. Skirts are still my thing, but instead of my go to pencil skirt I now felt more comfortable in an A-line skirt. Right then I knew I had to re-claim my style, and recreate a wardrobe to reflect the "new me".
I realized that most people have their own "344pm moments" - a time when their lives change and things get hectic and unfortunately their style gets lost in the shuffle. I created 344pm to help women maintain their personal style through all of the "344pm moments" of their lives." - Monisha Kapur, Founder
