About the Designers

 

Saana Allie grew up in a working-class neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. She was always drawn to fashion and style while also excelling in history and law. Saana has a successful background in international security and diplomacy. She holds a Master’s Degree in Strategic Studies and International Economics from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Having often been the only female in the room, Saana is passionate about encouraging women to push forward in their careers and never sacrificing their femininity to be taken seriously. 



After years of military service, Whitney Jennings’ family settled in El Paso, Texas, where she spent her formative years with her nose between the pages of leading women's magazines. She values empowering and elevating women and has done so in her 12 years of experience in the fashion and beauty industries. She holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of the District of Columbia and an Associate of Applied Science in Fashion Marketing from Parsons School of Design. Taught to question double standards, Whitney's dream is to see women do in the light what they've always done in the dark: Run the world.
