Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson met as NYC fashion design interns almost ten years ago. Transplants from Virginia Beach and Vancouver respectively, they bonded over their common love of antique textiles.
Cary and Jenna designed for Language NYC in 2001, having their hands in all aspects of the business. In 2004, they launched LaROK together and built the brand into a multi-million dollar venture. However, in 2007 they both left LaROK to refocus their energy on starting their own familes. After Cary gave birth to daughter Alice and Jenna had her son James, they felt the time had come to collaborate again. Thus, ace&jig was born.
