Anh55 is an employee-owned profit-for-purpose social enterprise and an ESG clothing company startup created by Anh Vu Sawyer, a former refugee from Vietnam.
Anh55 provides exquisite, well-made ready-to-wear and bespoke gender-neutral clothes for clients of different ages while providing economic development to skilled refugees and immigrants in the Boston area. Our designs and production are 90%+ zero-waste.
Anh55 spearheads a new generation of gender-neutral clothing that is at the intersection of beauty, social impact, sustainability, economic development, culture, and inclusivity.
Philip and Anh are committed to excellent everything.
We believe that clothes are art – a harmony of beauty, practicality, and sustainability. Clothes reflect our uniqueness, they subtly communicate beauty, thoughtfulness and our distinct ideas to the world with regard to social impact and eco-friendliness. Anh55 commits to healthy materials and strives for a zero-waste approach. 10% of our sales have been consistently used to support the arts, education and economic development for marginalized women and ethnic minorities.
While we have always been collaborating on designing, Philip specializes in solving particular design and fit issues, with nearly 40 years of designing and making clothing, from skirts and pants to bespoke tailored suits and wedding dresses. Our clothes have always been a combination of the best of the “old” with the best of the “new”.
We design and make our clothes in Boston, MA, in Fort Point, the oldest and largest artist community in the northeast. Our studio and showroom is housed in a redeemed wool warehouse, and is only a few minutes from South Station, Chinatown, and the Financial District. Our studio is also where we often entertain our family and friends.
