"It's all about keeping a little girl... a little girl. Keeping her youthful. Keeping her spinning and twirling and carefree. And most importantly, bringing her happiness."


-Denise DeMarchis, MJC founder




Matilda Jane Clothing has one overriding goal – to bring happiness into the lives of our customers. Our girls, tween, and adult lines are designed to bring a smile to your face every time you look in your closet or step out your door. Matilda Jane Clothing's whimsical approach to texture, pattern, and color results in designs that are youthful, playful, and expressive. Our clothes are made with the MJC girl in mind – she’s smart, fun, stylish, and always 100% true to herself!

The magic of Matilda Jane is that moment of sheer joy when you try on the outfit of your dreams. It’s the moment when a little girl spontaneously  twirls in a dress as adorable and unique as she is. Our dream is that women and girls across the country will have those magic moments every day, and we do our little part by sharing the Matilda Jane magic in person, through our in-home Trunk Shows.
