Discover How Trisha Bantigue Becomes The Face of Forbes: Under 30 Art & Style
Trisha Bantigue started Queenly (which recently raised $7.1m in funding which is almost unheard of for female-founded companies) to ensure that all women have access to gorgeous formal attire for a price that doesn’t break the bank.
Queenly got its humble start in pageants. 27-year-old Trisha Bantigue was born and raised in Angeles City, Philippines before moving to America.
“Pageants really helped me get my degree, and they changed my life,” she says.
“These gowns sometimes cost as much as a car!” she says. “I started noticing how hard it was for other people, and even myself to find a gown, afford a gown, and then resell it.”
Queenly’s inventory of over 50,000 gently worn authenticated dresses (including couture dresses!) by over 40 different designers takes the stress out of formalwear shopping by bringing together all the best styles in one place. The unlimited potential of peer-to-peer resale inventory is what makes Queenly stand out from the crowd.
