ModCloth started as an outlet for Susan's love of fashion! In high school, Susan spent most of her weekends and summers thrift store shopping. She often found herself unable to pass up a great vintage find, no matter the size. Soon enough, her closet was overflowing with vintage styles she loved, but couldn't wear. Eric – her then-boyfriend – designed a website to help her turn her thrifting into a more lucrative hobby. In 2006, after both graduated from Carnegie Mellon University, Susan and Eric decided to take ModCloth from a hobby to a career. They expanded their selection to include clothing and decor from independent designers that fit ModCloth's vintage-inspired aesthetic.
Flash forward to today: Susan and Eric's friendship and romance have grown into a business partnership and a marriage. Since ModCloth's inception, the business has steadily grown, expanding from its dorm room beginnings to offices in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Susan drives the company's creative vision by searching the world for small designers and unique pieces that fit her customers' discriminating tastes, while Eric runs the business side as CEO.

We currently feature over 700 independent designers on our site and work with many more. We want to fundamentally change and democratize the fashion industry by creating a vibrant, social marketplace that empowers indie designers, suppliers, and our community. Our founder, Susan Gregg Koger, knows what it's like to start a small business and follow your dream – and we want to help make that happen for talented up-and-coming designers and suppliers across the United States and the world! This means supporting originality. Our designers and suppliers guarantee that they have full legal ownership and copyright to their designs. When items are accused of being direct knockoffs, we investigate the allegation and remove the item from our site if we determine there has been a breach in contract.
