Strong Woman of the Month: Ali Eagen of anatomy

Buffalo native Ali Eagen graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2007 and landed a job designing sweaters for Abercrombie & Fitch. She moved to Columbus, Ohio to begin a promising career doing what she had always wanted to do, but before long, designing for someone else just wasn’t good enough. Ali’s dream was becoming something bigger: her own brand, and her own store.

She opened the doors to anatomy late October, 2010 in hometown Buffalo, New York and after 16 months of designing and overseeing all aspects of the brand, including the two collections as well as hand selecting various local talent to showcase in anatomy, she relocated into a showroom inside of the Hotel at the Lafayette. Currently the showroom houses the made-to-measure collection and other local accessories, as well as the work space for constructing the garments.
