Two Texas sorority sisters – Megan Jackson Carreker and Aimee Miller – are behind Hip Chixs, a line of denim jeans that eliminate “whale tales” and “muffin tops.” They pitched the business on Shark Tank in 2013 but had sold only $12,000 worth of product at that point. None of the Sharks bit. Queen of QVC Lori Greiner told them to try designing something else, something unique.
Hip Chixs is still selling its high-end jeans. Three styles are available on the Hip Chixs website – Skinny Bootie/Boot Cut ($187); Skinny Indigo ($187); and Straight and Narrow ($149). Note: There’s a $12 flat rate for shipping.
