"I hope that every girl who wears a M+J dress feels just as special as I used to when my Mamie created something fabulous for me.
These dresses are meant to be danced in, laughed in, and loved in."
Amanda is motivated by history and romance—whether she’s strolling the halls of Versailles, or poring over piles of vintage buttons in a dusty Southern junk shop, she’s endlessly inspired by beautiful things with a history. And the story behind her label, Mamie+James, is just as romantic: the “Mamie” in Mamie+James is actually Amanda’s grandmother, who traveled the world with the love of her life, James. Their journey took them from Morocco to Texas; and Mamie’s eye for design (and flair for putting together a great party ensemble) inspired Amanda to follow her dreams and create a line of fun-to-wear dresses with an historic twist.
