Where did you grow up, and where do you now call “home?”
Thats always a tough question, because I was born in Dayton, Ohio but moved to Buffalo, NY when I was a baby. I lived there until I was 9 years old, then moved to Southern California. My childhood was a mix of West and East Coast. I’ve lived in Los Angeles the last 15 years and it’s definitely my home.
What inspired you to launch Year of Ours?
Many reasons, but number one would be the fit of active wear. I would wear other brands, but I always had an issue with pieces slipping as I would run, weird waist lines, or bras that made it feel hard to breath. When we started, the design in the activewear market also wasn’t very cool. It’s evolved a lot since then and we’re happy to be a part of that. The third reason would be quality. We really wanted to produce activewear in America and do it well.
