How Transcendent’s Modest Activewear Collection Came to Be
Aja was born Italian Catholic in New Jersey and moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2001 to study fashion design at Pratt Institute. There, she not only found a fulfilling creative outlet in the vibrancy of New York City, but she also found her true calling that eventually led her to convert to Judaism.
Working for brands like Fila, Champion, and Converse brought about Aja’s passion for designing activewear, yet opened her mind to the negative impact fast fashion has on the environment. Completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training inspired her passion for wellness and mindfulness. That, combined with her strong ties to her faith, were the driving forces that led to the creation of Transcendent and the design of a fashionable modest activewear collection.
Aja believes that every choice we make can impact and, ultimately, repair the world. She never compromises on her values and believes that style and quality can and should be a part of the new ethical fashion movement. Transcendent is more than just a clothing brand; it is a community of women who strive to access their higher power and make the world a better place. All while wearing eco-conscious fashion that just happens to be modest activewear!
Behind every great woman, are great WOMEN
