Quo is the culmination of 25 years of industry experience from textile doyen Stacey Hunter-Harrington, who has spent the better part of her impressive career building active, swim and intimate apparel for many of the world's leading brands. As a yogi who surfs, runs, spins and hikes, Hunter knows first-hand that style, comfort and function are as integral to a successful workout as the number of calories burned. With her active lifestyle and passion for purposeful design, Hunter is at the forefront of high-performance solutions and innovative sewing technologies. Most weekends, she can be found planning adventures as an excuse to wear-test the best and most cutting-edge fabrics.
Hunter’s more than two-decades-long career began with the foundation of yarn and knitting. After honing her mastery of fit and construction working for the world's largest domestic textile companies, she evolved into R&D for global giants such as Victoria’s Secret, Under Armour, Lululemon, Speedo, GapBody, Nike, Target, Wacoal, and Spanx. In 2008, Hunter founded a successful consulting business developing activewear, swimwear and intimates for brands including Urban Outfitters, Aether Apparel, American Apparel, Patagonia, and The Row Nike. In June of 2018, she proudly launched Quo, a moisture-wicking, antimicrobial underwear for women who break a sweat.
"It took 25 years of experience working in all aspects of undergarments to realize what was missing in the market," explains Hunter, who harnesses her expertise in innovative R&D textiles and garment design into keen insight for merchandising. "Quo takes the best of technology, fit, and design and builds upon them to make something even better — something truly beautiful, comfortable, functional, and hygienic that the modern, active woman can live and sweat in."
