THE BRAND Born and raised in upstate New York, and then establishing a career in the city, Angela Brasington chose to keep her business local by manufacturing in New York City and surrounding boroughs. By manufacturing locally, Angela keeps a close eye on the quality of her work and the materials she uses. Through careful sourcing, she uses materials that are luxuriously soft to the touch because she believes a woman should feel as good as she looks. The collections are based on a seasonless approach, with classic silhouettes and a primarily neutral palette. Anjé's simple yet chic style will take you from day to night and season to season. By injecting seasonal styles into the mix, the brand pleases the classic jetsetters as well as the trendy fashionistas. Whatever the taste is, Anjé strives to inspire and empower women of all walks and reminds them to be true to themselves and confident in their own skin!
THE DESIGNER/FOUNDER Unlike so many who dream of working in the exciting and competitive world of fashion, Angela Brasington spent her time in competitions of a different sort. As a gymnast, she learned discipline and a will to work hard for the best results. She later realized that learning more about fashion had always been her true passion. Taking a far different route than most fashion designers, Angela Brasington acquired a business degree rather than a fashion degree. Wanting to run her own business since a young age, Angela knew she had to start from the bottom and work her way up to truly understand the wild world of fashion. Working at The Limited Design Studio allowed her to experience the corporate side of fashion, while spending many years at a large T-shirt factory gave her a manufacturer’s approach to fashion, providing a well-rounded understanding of the business. She was also able to become an expert in working with both domestic and international factories on samples and deliveries. Managing the production calendar was a crucial part of the role and understanding the importance of deliveries helped her build a strong foundation for the business. In 2014, nearly 10 years later, Angela decided to take the knowledge she amassed in her career and her passion to leave an undeniable impact on the world of fashion with the creation of Anjé. Her goal was to create an American made collection focusing on classic, fashion forward pieces that are made to carry you through every season.
