Sarah Clark

Sarah Clark

Founder, B&Me

After giving birth to Booker, her third child, Sarah Clark found herself leveraging makeshift solutions, consisting of her husband's giant puffer coat wrapped around her and her newborn, to simply get outside in the streets of NYC. While she never imagined starting her own business, she started B&Me with her flagship multi-functional coat and vest, determined to get moms outdoors while adapting to their changing bodies.

Brittany Coleman

Brittany Coleman

Founder, Tough Cutie

After years of working in the basic apparel industry for some of the most iconic brands, Brittany Coleman decided to take the plunge and build her own. She started Tough Cutie as a way to both literally and figuratively support working women in their walk through life. Her featured products include premium performance socks made in the USA thoughtfully designed for women on their outdoor hikes and adventures.

Jen Loofbourrow

Jen Loofbourrow

Founder, Alpine Fit

An Alaskan adventurer and avid-backpacker, Jen Loofbourrow was consistently finding that she had to pack too many items for her treks when this could been easily remedied with less, more versatile gear. Hence, Alpine Fit was born — quick-to-dry, versatile styles that suit a busy outdoor-loving life — 100% designed, made and wear-tested in Alaska.

Onika Shabazz

Onika Shabazz

Founder, Heat Athletic

A veteran runner for 25 years, Onika Shabazz was tired of being seen by brands for her size first, and her athleticism second. With no design experience but a ton of vision, she used her background as a social worker to develop mission-driven Heat Athletic — a company that creates a safe space, open dialogue and killer clothes for women sizes 12+ who love their body and embrace who they are, with no appologies.
