Hi, everyone! I'm Amy, the designer and founder of Amy Onyx, the world's first edgy-chic fashion brand for women that is sustainable, ethical, vegan, and size inclusive.
I am going on a mission to help change things in the fashion industry.
First, I have wanted to start my own clothing line since I was a teenager. I used to make alterations to my clothes to make them unique. It was very important for me to be different. I always got compliments on what I wore. I knew I was onto something.
Fast forward to 2018 when I really learned about sustainability and the unethical ways of the fashion industry. The insane amount of pollution and child labor being my biggest concerns.
Next, let me tell you about the kind of person I am. When I put my mind to something, I never give up. Especially if it's important. And this is SO important. I've started a clothing brand that will hopefully help lead more brands to follow and help bring more awareness to consumers.
Want to know more about me?
I'm married to a wonderful man named Dan. We have two kids (3 year old Hailey and 1 year old Colston) and two cats (Cooper and Roxy). I'm originally from St. Louis, Missouri, but have been living near Chicago, Illinois since 2007. My hobbies include film-making, modeling, acting, drawing, painting, and belly dancing. I love electronic music (Knife Party is my fave!), the show Friends, and making people laugh. I'm also very passionate about giving back.
