Claire Flowers is a St. Louis native who has a passion for making things better. While working in IT, Claire attended a week-long training in New York City that prompted the idea for a women’s shoe that is comfortable, stylish, and most importantly, durable enough to handle the wear and tear a professional woman puts on her footwear. She soon quit her full-time technology career to make this idea a reality, forming Claire Flowers LLC in 2014.
Gaining notoriety and brand recognition in her hometown, Claire has found success by marrying innovation and classic design. She has expanded her business in the spirit of creating professional women’s apparel that is resilient, versatile, and timeless. Claire Flowers footwear and apparel focuses on textiles, silhouettes, and colors for professional women who value function and fashion.
In her journey to the top, Claire believes in supporting and mentoring others along the way. She is active on several boards and charities, including The Women’s Leadership Council, the National Association of Professional Women, Women’s President Association, Gateway Stem advisory board, House of Genius, Purses and Pumps for Pooches and Pals (Humane Society of Missouri), Connections For Success, and Lift For Life Academy Fashion Show.
