Darbie Angell

Special guest

Darbie started her company without a single contact in the industry. She was working at one of the largest law firms in the country and went into labor with her daughter when she was five months pregnant. Darbie was put on bed rest for four months and decided that she wanted to start a company by combining her passion to impact the world with her knowledge in design. Darbie wanted to show her soon-to-be daughter how to dare to dream big! That bold step to live fully is what led Darbie to create her company, which has since become her life’s work.

With zero capital to put towards the brand, she found a man in Israel that sold her diamonds at cost. She then turned around and sold those diamonds to women around the world. That diamond venture allowed her to create her first product samples and attend her first meetings in New York with Macy’s. She is blessed to now be in retailers such as Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Dillard’s, as well as smaller home stores and boutiques.

Additionally, her interactions with people she has met traveling the world are what have inspired her to give back. She will tell you that she does not go a single day without thinking about the life changing sights she has seen and cultures she has been immersed in. Darbie looks at every moment as an opportunity to create, inspire, and explore, and the culture of her company embraces each opportunity. It drives her to go the extra mile to not only make luxurious pieces, but to promote change.
