ActiveUptown and downtown. Fashion and function. Day and night. BLANQI is a brand for todays versatile, on-the-move woman — a woman who needs high performance without any compromise on style. What began as a conversation between best friends, Valerie Darragh and Sabina Melarti — as it turned out, they had both been frusterated by the nonexistence of chic and practical support garments, and so assembled their own — led to the creation of the first ever all-in-one seamless support band line of fashion-forward, supportwear. If they had both needed it, they reasoned surely other women did too. And so, from sourcing manufacturers to writing a patent, creating graphics to forming a Fortune 500-filled advisory board, the BLANQI brand came to be.
