Speaker Bio

Cami Téllez is Chief Executive Officer, Creative Director, and Founder of Parade, a community-first brand that champions bold self-expression, color, and sustainability. Founded as a response to the one-body narrative pushed by the underwear industry, it has galvanized a grassroots revolution to disrupt and change the industry into one that prioritizes style, inclusive fit, sustainability, and affordability.
Growing up in a time when the underwear category portrayed a specific aesthetic, Ms. Téllez felt compelled to rewrite the underwear story for good. In 2019, she dropped out of Columbia University to start Parade. To date, the company is valued at $200M and has sold more than six million pairs of underwear. Parade has become a beloved brand by Gen-Z and is committed to becoming a climate positive business by the end of 2025. Ms. Téllez has been featured in Forbes 30 Under 30, Elle, Fortune, Bloomberg, and more.
