President, Annie and Jade by Annie Le

40 Under 40, continued ...Published: May 01, 2011


Annie Le has always been conscious of the environment, but when she went shopping she couldn’t find eco-friendly clothing other than casual street and yoga wear. With a background in marketing and design, Le decided she had found a niche and started her own clothing line in 2009. She is committed to being environmentally friendly, using organic, natural, and recycled fabrics and materials, all made in the USA. Her company also is a partner of CarbonFund.org.
“The fashion industry is a tricky business, and it takes awhile to establish yourself,” says Le, whose line was named Best in Show by Women’s Wear Daily and California Apparel News at L.A. Fashion Week in 2010. “You have to be able to push yourself to continue with the next collection, especially through those times of doubt. I feel that my brand fills a need within the market. Women can wear my pieces, know that they are making less of an impact on the environment, while still feeling feminine and sexy.”
