Ariane Goldman, Founder of Hatch Collection and Twobirds Bridesmaid

Planning a wedding and preparing for a baby can be intense, often stressful times. For Ariane Goldman, they were also inspiring times. Ariane founded two high-style fashion lines that reshaped the two most challenged fashion categories: maternity and bridesmaid. and she did it while, you guessed it, around the time of her wedding and during her first pregnancy. Twobirds Bridesmaid and HATCH have become saviors to stylish women everywhere. "I feel like my job is to give women products they need at moments in life that often feel super challenging. I want to make it easier to feel beautiful, chic, and happy," says Ariane. The NYC-based mama of two (Charlie Grey, 6, and Georgie Lou, 2) just launched a Hatch capsule collection of maternity denim with Current/Elliot that will make every fashionista wish for a belly bump.

Proud Moment: "Personally, I am proud of myself that I take risks: I walked up and started talking to my husband at a bar; I quit my job and started my own business; I am raising two beautiful, loving girls in New York City. It’s all about choices and the greatest things I have are because of the risks that I've taken."

Words of Wisdom: "Don't beat yourself up—stay high."
