Dorie Golkin Smith & Emelyn Northway: Co-founders of Of Mercer

Of Mercer Co-founders Dorie Golkin Smith and Emelyn Northway met the first week of Wharton Business School at a welcome event … wearing the exact same black dress. Laughing over the initial awkwardness, they immediately bonded over their shared appreciation for their one, go-to confidence-inducing professional outfit. Having worked in consulting and finance for years, they knew there had to be a better way to get dressed for work 5 (or 6 or 7) days a week. The solution was simple: create a dedicated work-wear brand with a bold modern aesthetic to take women where they need to go.

It seemed easy enough, but the endeavor was ambitious and something was missing…a creative, a designer, someone with fashion industry experience… Enter Aja Singer: Parsons grad and tailored clothing specialist. And with that Of Mercer was born.

Though the label started as an e-commerce business model, the pair would go on to open their flagship store in New York City's Flatiron district at 42 East 21st Street.

Quincy Davis
was born and raised in the beach town of Montauk, Long Island, Davis first got on a surfboard because she was bored. Her brother and two best friends were always surfing so eventually she tired of tanning, grabbed a board and that was it. Quincy, who has been with the Volcom Surf Team since 2007, splits her time between Montauk in the summer and Rincon, Puerto Rico in the winter and travels the world competing at amateur events in hopes of one day being on the Women’s World Tour.
