Made for More is a Christian based apparel line that is catering to the soul and fashion needs of it's buyers. Started by Perpetual Criss, a first generation college graduate in her family, and a strong advocate for how the love of Christ can change your life, Made for More is as a why to spread that very love.The brand is popular for it's graphic tees with empowering and motivating slogans and has birthed the ministry that Perpetual uses to spread the word of Christ."I get to share a message with people everywhere with
a few simple words on a tee. It’s amazing!" says Perpetual about her brand.
One of the most popular tees is the Pretty & Purposed tee. When asked about the significance behind the slogan, Perpetual gives a moving and touching reason that shows that this brand is truly from her heart:
Pretty and Purposed is a testimony in three
Many people don’t know the level of
insecurity that I struggled with. Not just the typical oh I don’t feel cute
battle. I use to look in the mirror and cry because of my deformities. My left
ear is cleft and I have gone through several reconstructive surgeries however,
it was never corrected. I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t have been tampering with
God’s handiwork in the first place. Pretty and Purposed spreads a message to women
all over the world that pretty is so much more than a feature and that despite
what we think are flaws God has purposed us and created us in his image. We think of pretty and feel like we have to
have the best hair, the straightest teeth, the best physique but Ephesians 2:10
says, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.” To know that God took time to
create me and knew me in and out really puts me in a sense of awe."
Don't be mistaken, the Made for More brand isn't just selling tees with motivating words, Perpetual is using the line to motivate teenage girls in a hands on approach. During an event held earlier this year entitled
"Pretty and Purposed", teenage girls were pampered, painted inspiring artwork, worshipped Christ, and listened to a panel discussion that instilled the true meaning of being pretty and accepting themselves the way that God sees them.
"I truly believe that if God has shown you or put a venture on your heart that he will be the source of it. It will be trying, very trying but you have to continue to move."
With the launch of the website coming this fall and the next "Pretty and Purposed event following soon after, the Made for More brand is one that will definitely be making move moves. In the meanwhile follow them on IG at made4more_christianapparel or email email@example.com.
