Hello,My name is Francy Santoro, owner of Fancy Pants Fitnesswear…I had always loved to use the lycra from Brazil, and people always stopped to ask me about the materials I used and how pretty and colorful they are. As time went by, I met a friend that was selling leggings.
We began working together, and we opened our first business. Unfortunately, we were soon forced to close this company due to the political situation. We were tremendously sad about the outcome of our business, but I still thought it would be possible to continue making clothing if I returned to Brazil to look for others who could help build the business.It was then I met a lady who needed work to help provide for her family and take care of her home. She was retired with grandchildren, and dauthers who need to work, and was a very good seamtress.
In addition, I also met a personal trainer, Daniella, who was interested in opening the business with me. After almost 4 years together, she left to travel and discover the world, leaving her unable to continue working alongside me.Today, I have had Fancy Pants Fitnesswear for over 7 years, and I have believed in my work every step of the way, because I am focused and have always wanted to help people and make sportswear better with reasonable prices.1jpgAs of now, we have been fortunate enough to add 3 additional seamstresses.
These ladies all take the time to craft and sew each piece of clothing by hand, being sure to add care and detail along the way. Every piece made is unique, and is crafted from our own ideas, along with fashion and fitness trends that are actively changing.It is not easy to manage alone, but it is OUR company because I believe that the women that I work with are a part of everything, each step of the way, and because without their work and affection, Fancy Pants Fity today would not have been able to happen.
I believe in the love of work and persistence, and when we put those two things together along with belief in ourselves, we can go far.There are many brands in competition, as sports fashion is very large. I have seen that to reach our goals, we must pursue new, creative ways of advertising.
