We’re Better Together

It’s heartening to see women everywhere come together to show support and allegiance to each other with the #ChallengeAccepted campaign. It made us reflect how AMLY naturally evolved into a beautifully entwined collaboration between women. We’ve channelled the power of these partnerships into everything we do.

Research suggests that women who raise each other up are more successful. There are also many studies out there indicating that collaboration rather than competition is much more beneficial for women, and it’s certainly our experience.

Over the years we’ve established meaningful connections, aware that nurturing these bonds is what keeps our joint creativity and passion alive. This approach means we spend time together and have fun, whether that’s at a summer picnic, carols around the piano or simply a day together in the meadow.

Now it’s time for you to meet the women who have made AMLY what it is today

Let’s shine together.
