The Girlfriend Collective Origin Story
Seattle-based Quang Dinh and his wife, Ellie, refused to compromise their values in the name of fashion. Instead, when they were unable to find a quality, trendy and ethically made activewear brand, they set out to create their own. Zero compromise. Zero time wasted. And, it turns out, as little actual waste as possible, too.
Girlfriend Collective entered the scene in 2016 with an innovative, sleek legging made of recycled water bottles — and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, Girlfriend Collective is more than an activewear brand (with stylish, comfortable collection of products that extends well beyond leggings); it’s an admired, successful and dedicated collective of likeminded women doing good for the planet while feeling good in their clothes and building strength in themselves.
