Hip Chix entrepreneurs Aimee Miller and Megan Jackson-Carreker pitch their line of premium denim jeans for women to the Sharks in episode 416. The two Dallas area women began Hip Chix in 2011 after four years of testing fabrics and designs. The Baylor University grads met in college and remained friends over the years. As native Texans, they wanted blue jeans that were lightweight and comfortable in the Texas heat and weren’t stiff and rough like some jeans can be. They manufacture Hip Chix jeans in California, making Hip Chix a true American product. Designed with women in mind, Hip Chix jeans are “buttery soft to the touch and highlight your posterior in a positive way.” Megan and Aimee are both jean loving, Texas fashionistas with a love for sleek, soft, comfortable and stylish denim. Megan brings some fashion design experience to the table as well.
Hip Chix Shark Tank Recap
Megan and Aimee will pitch the panel of five Sharks on Hip Chix and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that Hip Chix is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Hip Chix will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
