Co-founders of Not Sorry Apparel Dy-Min Johnson, and Jessica Minnick. These two goddess meet at a kick boxing class. After bonding over sparing, they found inspiration in one another—taking a simple idea for a bad-ass corp top design and turning it into a revolutionary business.

Not Sorry Apparel is stitching together creative & sustainable solutions to combat the growing fast fashion problem. By re-branding & upcycling pre-loved garments, we provide stylish, one-of-a-kind pieces that customers can afford and feel good about wearing.
