Meet the founder
Aaina Jain Malik
Aaina Jain Malik grew up surrounded by fabrics, the art of cut & sew and fashion. Her family had been creating premium denim for more than 35 years so it was only natural that she pursued a career in fashion. “My passion for clothing and fascination for beautiful well made garments started when I was a child” said Aaina.
After completing her high school education in India, Aaina came to the United States in 2002 to pursue her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Communications from Emerson College, Boston. With an underlying entrepreneurial spirit , she spent several years working for prestigious brands such as GAP Inc., Estee Lauder, La Mer, and Jo Malone London managing their North America markets.
During her experiences she found something was lacking in the children’s wear market, especially in denim and discovered that the top brands did not match the quality, style, and price that she could bring directly to customers with her family’s +35 years of expertise in creating premium denim clothing for kids. Importantly, she felt there was a need to bring safe and tested while still fashionably comfortable clothes to families who want to dress up their children and not spend a fortune on it.
Aaina also discovered there is no way for parents to know the quality of the clothes, whether the fabrics are safe to use and if they are made with sustainable ways. These are all important factors when it comes to children’s clothing. Lastly, social responsibility and sustainability were key factors she strived for in her business. Combining all these elements with her love for denim – a fabric symbolic for it’s timelessness and ease of wear, Aaina launched Blu & Blue in 2015.
Her mission for Blu & Blue, “Our goal is to redefine denim clothing with a sustainable consciousness and bring elevated denim styles at approachable prices directly to our customers.” is seen throughout the foundation of the brand.
