About Us

Meet Marion, founder & owner 

First of all, THANK YOU for visiting my new website! I am so humbled by how much support from my community that has helped my business grow in such a short amount of time.

If you had asked me three years ago where I would be today, I would have said that I would still be working at a PR agency and living in my apartment in NYC, but in March 2020 my life completely changed. I lost my job and was considering changing my career altogether. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and felt completely lost.

Fast forward to the end May of 2020, when I had to move back home to Long Island because everything was shutting down due to COVID-19 and NYC was becoming a ghost town. It was right around Mother's Day when the children of my neighbors and I decided to do some tie-dye in my driveway to surprise our moms and mother figures with a cute handmade gift (we usually do this once every summer, but it was 2020 and we were so bored!). Once we handed out the gifts, my family had suggested that I start my own business, and that's how To Tie-Dye for Clothing was born.
I had gone door to door handing out business cards to local businesses and emailing various school districts on Long Island for permission to use their logos on some tie-dye clothing. I was met with a lot of rejection or unanswered emails, and was solely using word of mouth to promote my small business. Finally, the big break came when Theresa Caputo from Long Island Medium saw my business online and started following me. She even posted my tie-dye face masks on her stories, which was an absolutely incredible moment in my career.
From getting more and more orders through direct messages on social media, TTDFC was officially registered as a small business and launched our Shopify website. Over the past three years, we have grown tremendously from just an e-commerce platform. So far we have completed:
  • Three local charity fundraisers to help raise money for causes such as breast cancer, bullying prevention and domestic violence awareness
  • Six local school fundraisers with PTAs to help raise money for each school
  • Numerous vendor fairs across Long Island and NYC
  • Over 50 public and private tie-dye classes and parties
  • Over 10 wholesale orders to boutiques throughout the U.S., including retail chain Denny's Childrenswear

I can't believe that we have accomplished so much so far, and can't wait to see what the future holds in store for TTDFC!

- XOXO, Marion
