The story behind Grey Ant is one that warms the cockles of even the darkest, coldest fashion heart. As a kid growing up in the Chicago suburbs, Grant Krajecki started making clothes after stumbling upon his mother’s sewing machine. He turned his dream into a business in 1998 when he started a clothing line called Grey Ant. Year after year, the label pumped out cool hip huggers, loud printed t-shirts and other styles that were far different from the trends that dominated the runways. In 2004, former intern Natalie Levy joined the label as a partner and two years later, the duo introduced sunglasses into their line.
