We’re Rachel and Valeria, and this is our story.

Rachel discovered dress shields when working in investment banking after college.  She was living in NYC, commuting on the subway and working 16+ hour days, all while wearing a suit.  Her dry-cleaning costs were high and “pit stains” were a constant issue.  Rachel’s mother suggested an old-fashioned solution called “dress shields”.  Rachel was interested, but horrified when she saw what was available: think granny panties for your top half.  She bought some and altered the neckline and arms.  The product was a revelation - she could wear whatever she wanted, without worrying about ruining her garments!  The only problem was the product was still so ugly.  She decided women should have something functional and beautiful so she set out to modernize and relaunch the dress shield concept.

 

Rachel has worked in finance, strategy and operations for companies such as Merrill Lynch, Capital One and Kaplan Test Prep.  She enjoys bringing this breadth of experience to her own start-up.

 

Rachel holds a BA in Economics from Yale and an MBA from the Wharton School.  She lives in Arlington, VA with her husband, three children, and their two dogs.

Valeria Van Brummelen

Valeria grew up in the Philippines.  She was incredibly lucky to attend the International School, where she made life-long friends with people from around the world. One of the more memorable days of the school year was International Day, when everyone would come to school wearing the traditional garb of their countries. She was struck by the variety of colors, styles, fabrics and the stories behind the clothes.

Valeria came to the US for college and her MBA.  She was a brand strategist at award-winning ad agencies in New York, LA and San Francisco.  While she loved the challenge of developing brand strategy for companies ranging from Ikea to Revlon, she's dreamed of creating a brand of her own that would make women's lives better, even if only in a small way.  

Valeria lives in Washington DC with her husband, three kids, and their dog, Lola.

Rachel Zamsky

Rachel played the harp throughout high school and college and sweat stains have ruined more fancy performance dresses than she would care to admit.  (Nothing makes you sweat more than walking out on a stage and staring into a dark auditorium). If only she could have had this product sooner!
