Aaron Potts was born and raised in Detroit to a working class family with roots in the American South. A childhood filled with church, weekend fishing trips, going to work with his carpenter father, and shopping with his dress-loving mama would shape his future view of art and design. He discovered fashion in high school and never looked back. Mr. Potts graduated from Parsons School of Design and went on to intern for Marc Jacobs, Tracy Reese, and Donna Karan. After an international career designing for Emanuel Ungaro, Anne Klein, Ellen Tracy, Escada, Tamara Mellon, and others, the time was right for him to create A.Potts. Through a lens of what he calls "Everyday Editorial", the brand embodies his embrace of creativity and usefulness — pieces that are as special as they are practical, designed to address the needs and wants of busy creatives. The collection is an expression of Mr. Potts’ love of beauty that unites and celebrates people of all races, sizes, ages, and gender expressions. The unifying factor is the collective spirit of artfulness, chicness, self-exploration...and hopefully JOY!
