Sid and Ann Mashburn have always loved finding and making great things to share with people – in short, making a connection with everyone. Together, they opened a shop on the west side of Atlanta in 2007… and then they kept going.
After design posts at J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Lands’ End, Sid spent years looking for the kind of retail he and Ann had seen in Europe and Asia: places that weren’t just shops, but experiences. Ann was on the editorial side of things at Condé Nast as an assistant and editor at both Vogue and Glamour, and knew how to find the incredible among the so-so.
When they began, they knew it wasn’t only about making cool, special, useful things. It was about the curating of them, making the selection a little less daunting, a little easier, even fun. Because you don’t need a lot of choices… you just need the right choices. And with over fifty years in the fashion industry between the two of us, they felt they had the experience to pull it off.
So today, theirs is a simple concept: a combination of their own designed-and-produced clothing and their favorite classic, iconic, and hard-to-find pieces… all in a space designed to feel as beautiful, inspiring, and welcoming as possible. They have four sets of connected men’s and women’s shops: one on the Westside of Atlanta, one in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston, one in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington DC, one on the Katy Trail in Dallas, as well as an e-commerce shop at sidmashburn.com & annmashburn.com that serve customers from all over the world.
The Mashburns are proud AGS parents, with their last daughter graduating in the class of 2019.
