Learn about the background and experience of the three founders

  • Toke

    Raised in Roselle, NJ, Toke - short for Token the chosen one - is currently completing her senior year at Kean University majoring in criminal justice while pursuing a fashion career. Strange combination, right? But Toke's ultimate goal is to help others and reshape society. Toke is an enthusiastic and dynamic stylist, whose keen eye and profound love for fashion developed at a young age. After accepting herself as part of the LGBT community and letting loved ones in on her lifestyle, Toke looked to fashion as an outlet, helping her to express and accept herself from within. With her strong knack for detail and fresh approach to styling, Toke's ability to concurrently predict trends and surpass them - at the age of 23 - has solidified her role as an influence through fashion.

    Taz is a very creative individual, and that creativity manifests itself in the world of art and fashion. She is a product of the Linden Public School system and a graduate of Lackawana College, Scranton, PA with an AAS in Liberal Arts. Taz works in the fashion retail industry as an inventory control specialist, and her passions have opened many doors to opportunities as a designer and artist. Being a part of the LGBT community, she - along with two other grade-school friends - launched the "Rejected Society" brand, a fashion line dedicated to the beautifully handsome women within the LGBT community. As an artist, she believes that her gift and talent is God-given and comes from within.

  • Mese

    Mese is always getting down to business. Taking classes for graphic design at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Mese's creativity blossomed, as did her self-becoming. Mese was raised in Linden, New Jersey where she partnered with long-time friends to use creativity to educate others on the LGBT community, lifestyle, and ways to improve our community. Making sure operations are running smoothly is what motivates Mese the most, and she lends her graphics skills to the Rejected Society product line. At the young age of 23, Mese hopes to help foster feelings of peace, love and blessings within the LGBT community through Rejected Society.
