Michelle Pasia is the artist and founder of Strange Mercy. The brand started in 2016 as a shop selling curated vintage clothing from New York City. Today, the brand showcases women empowerment, body positivity, and spirituality, through everyday wear that shows carefree radical femininity.
Michelle shares with LW&D that even less is more if you breathe meaning into it. She says that she "wants to highlight the feeling of gratitude for the instances we’re able to spend with the important beings in our lives and how we can be fully present in such moments. In line with that, maybe a self-analysis check on how our words, stories, and actions can impact our friends or our community as we constantly ask ourselves how we can bring added value to the conversation or to the group."
