At 27, with just $15,000, I started my own company. At that time the bra and panty business was dominated by large corporations. As a disrupter, I didn’t want to choose between comfort and style. And I didn’t think other women should have to either.
Today AAi employs 120 passionate individuals in New York, California, Arkansas, and Hong Kong. Meet some of the team behind that success.”
