Monica ten Cate studied Business & Economics at University before spending a year in Switzerland and a further year in The United States at the highly esteemed Whittier College in California.

Returning to the Netherlands, she went in search of business functions that appealed to her creative side and kept her in direct contact with the customer.
Monica took up positions in Sales & Promotion and Brand/Account Management before discovering her passion for fashion.

In recent years Monica has worked predominantly in the fashion industry. In July 2011 she launched her very own agency ‘Moon Company’. Inspired by the name given to her by her friends, Moon is short for Monica, it reflects her informal, friendly approach to business.

Monica has exciting brands in her portfolio. Danish fashion brand Lollys Laundry is an understated luxury that everyone can afford. The philosophy is to create a brand where the quality and price are woven together. French brand Poppy Field the Label is an ethical Fashion brand, using noble materials and caring for the environment. Newest brand in her portfolio is another lovely French fashion brand, Louizon, Louizon is all about using nice, qualitative and natural fabrics with a boho vibe. Half of the collections is made of French/local materials. Louizon really wants to focus more and more about picking the right fabrics for the planet, and the best suppliers too, so they can walk slowly towards a more sustainable line.

Motivated and personable, Monica believes fully in the brands she has chosen to represent. She has an eye for affordable quality and offers everything from feminine simplicity to bohemian chic.

‘Moon Company’ has a permanent showroom but after each selling-season she is visiting customers to offer further advise of the brands. Monica looks forward to building a network of fashion conscious, friendly people and seeing her beautiful brands, where they should be, hanging in the shops or better worn by a lot of beautiful people!
