Dogs, fashion, and charity—we love when our favourite things come together! Mister Migs truly does create "dog gear for good" in their non-profit Atlanta design studio, and in more ways than one. The fashion-forward designs (we love the Gigi harness) are not only functional and fun but sustainable, using recycled denim as the main material. And in addition to doing their part to tread lightly upon the environment, Mister Migs is creating opportunities and breaking down employment barriers for youth with autism and developmental disabilities through their scholarship program, Your Career Unleashed (YCU).

"YCU offers a unique, positive training model focused on teamwork to combat the tragically high unemployment rate of youth with autism and developmental disabilities," explains Karen Lynn, Mister Migs' founder and president. "Through this scholarship program, YCU is able to mentor young people, helping them explore employment options and focus on their wants and needs, not only for their career but for their life passion."

The 10-week program includes a hands-on internship, team building activities, career planning, mentoring sessions, and tours of Atlanta's leading companies. While interning at Mister Migs, YCU participants are introduced to many different areas including design, marketing, photography, and production. Following the completion of the program, mentees are provided with career support from seasoned professionals for up to one year to help prepare them for employment in the real world.

If you're looking for beautiful, handcrafted dog clothes and accessories matched by an equally beautiful commitment to sustainability and community, look no further than Mister Migs. Their inspiring, principled approach to business is a breath of fresh air. Check out their designs here
