Now, Drybar has over a hundred stores across the country. Alli and Michael share what it takes to risk everything on a great idea, they share the things they’re obsessed with -- and they fight like brother and sister. Oh, did we forget to mention that Alli and Michael are also siblings?

    Argent: The Pantsuit Startup Outfitting Hillary Clinton & Kamala Harris

    Sali Christeson spent a decade in the Bay Area's fin-tech scene where she struggled to find clothes that were bold, practical, and professional. In 2016 she founded Argent, a workwear company for women focused on function and style. As CEO, Sali has one goal in mind—to tackle the workwear-joy gap. Today, Argent has raised $4 million in seed money and gained fans from Hollywood to Capitol Hill. Pieces feature functional elements like reversible suits, media and stylus pockets for everything from credit cards to lip gloss, microfiber pocket bags (for cleaning glasses and iPhones), and even belt clips for ID badges. Sali sat down with Alli to talk about gender inequality in the workplace, revving up marketing and partnerships in 2020, and the pros and cons of the DTC business model.
