We are huge fans of HATCH Collection—what made you decide to take the leap and start the brand?
When I founded HATCH in 2011, there just weren’t any solutions out there for ‘growing’ style. I had just been pregnant with Charlie, and the “maternity” market was super far from my personal look or anything that I wanted to wear. I could only imagine that there were zillions of women out there who felt like me, but who had just resigned to wearing a floral mumu for nine months instead of feeling like themselves during a super vulnerable and challenging life moment. It just seemed criminal. Starting a new company is always a ‘leap,’ as you said, but this leap just seemed so vital to meeting women’s needs and wants during such an extraordinary time.
