For sisters-in-law Lauren and Lani Levy the concept that women should not have to compromise their style during pregnancy was a no brainer.
Like many good concepts, the idea for Ani + Wren came naturally and out of necessity. Throughout her pregnancy, Lauren had a hard time finding maternity clothes to suit her style - and an even harder time navigating the racks of contemporary clothes at her favourite boutiques to find the elusive pieces that could highlight her bump.
Lauren and Lani spent the next year developing their concept for a new lifestyle boutique with the core philosophy that pregnant women should feel confident and beautiful, rather than feeling like they’ve settled for clothes that don’t truly reflect their personal style.
To provide expectant moms with the most exceptional shopping experience, Lani and Lauren have carefully curated a collection of exclusive maternity and coveted contemporary brands to ensure that all pieces can be worn before, during and after pregnancy. Ani + Wren is also stocked with everything else a stylish mom-to-be could desire to complete her look including jewelry, shoes, bags, hats and other accessories.
With a focus on a high level of personal service, Ani + Wren is the go-to destination for fashion conscious moms seeking sought after pieces that are an extension of their already stylish wardrobes. These two sisters in law have mommas covered from bump and beyond!
