As an avid tennis player, Carolyn searched for tennis wear she would feel good in, and feel good about. Season after season she was left disappointed.
With an eye for feminine style, and a feel for high-performance fabrics, Carolyn set off to develop a tennis line to feel proud of.
Abby spent the first part of her career building the skills needed to make the Ace Athletics vision a reality. With an education from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, she landed her first job at Ralph Lauren designing and developing many collections including Polo Tennis. After a stint in Toronto designing for Pink Tartan, Abby moved back to her home town of Vancouver to further her design and development skills for the women’s fashion brand, Aritzia.
A few years later Abby was ready for a new challenge. With an aligned vision and shared passion, Abby and Carolyn set out to make Ace Athletics a reality.
