Company History

Founded in 2019, Queenly is the best place to find the exact dress you need for your prom, wedding, or other special occasions.

Coming from a minority low-income backgrounds, the founders grew up feeling that the dream of having that "fairytale Cinderella" dress was never truly attainable—a common struggle for most women. Through forging friendships with other women in the pageants they competed in, and working closely with countless formalwear fashion designers, they were able to start Queenly.

Our company finds a home in a diverse and inclusive community of queens trying to push the boundaries of what it means to feel beautiful and confident in the modern age—that such traits can come in all shapes and sizes, and that together, we can embrace these beliefs wholeheartedly.

The Founding Team

Trisha Bantigue, Queenly CEO and cofounder

Trisha Bantigue, CEO and co-founder

Trisha graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in Political Science. She has since worked at Google, Facebook, and most recently Uber, on their Executive Recruiting team focused on Engineering and Product.

She first found inspiration for Queenly from her many years competing in pageants and modeling for fashion designers. Her biggest wish is to have Queenly reflect the progressive, inclusive goals of these respective industries and to provide access and affordability to women everywhere.
