Abi Ferrin has a passion for empowering women and has been doing so through her eponymous clothing line for years. As a fashion designer, she has had a perfect platform to inspire women, and as a philanthropist she created her company to support women while dressing them.
From day one, Abi Ferrin has been committed to transparency in the manufacturing of her product. From her own in-house Texas atelier where 50% of her product is created, to the outsourced manufacturers she selects, she personally ensures that the environments are clean and that happy people who are paid honest wages sew each garment that bears the Abi Ferrin label.
Along with her Flagship Boutique in Dallas, Abi Ferrin sells her clothes to exclusive boutiques and resorts globally, and has received much recognition for her unique approach to design and entrepreneurialism by many.

Shortly after leaving a 2 year relationship where she was the victim of domestic violence and credit card theft, she was introduced to the plight of trafficked individuals, and created the Freedom Project. The Freedom Project supports organizations that rescue, rehabilitate and inspire entrepreneurial opportunities and employment for former victims of trafficking and abusive employment. Every Abi Ferrin garment of clothing that is sold comes with a Freedom Project tag that includes a button made by one of these organizations. The Freedom Project is also proud to partner with Nepal-based company, Purnaa to produce Abi’s collaborative cashmere collection, AbiPaige.
