The birth of
The name GLOWE (glō-wē) is an acronym for
Giving LOve to Women Everywhere.
“While I was pregnant with my first child I suffered from back and pelvic pain. I was shocked to discover that no maternity brands were tackling this issue. At the time I was a design director at Under Armour. It was clear to me that maternity apparel had been left in the dark ages.
I set out to invent a legging that applies performance technology used in sportswear to help women have a more supportive pregnancy.”
Every mama deserves this level of self-care, and so GLOWE was born.
Lucy’s fashion career spans nearly 20 years as a respected leader and creative director at some of the world’s most renowned brands such as Burberry, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and J.Crew. In 2014, Lucy pivoted into an innovation role at sportswear giant Under Armour, where her mission was to look at new ways to enhance an athlete’s natural ability through performance apparel. While working with American Ballet Theater’s principal dancer Misty Copeland on her signature line, Lucy created collections that were the perfect balance between style and performance.
“Tapping into my fashion and innovation background, we spent years obsessing over fit and quality, resulting in the GLOWE, a superior maternity legging I couldn’t go a day without wearing during pregnancy, and still now, over a year postpartum!” – Lucy, mom of two and founder of Glowe.
Glowe is a small two-person start-up and we would like to thank all of the women that have joined us on our journey so far.
YOU put the GLOW into Glowe.
We are forever grateful.
