Dana Veraldi & Amanda Veraldi
Dana Veraldi is the designer and founder of Deer Dana, a brand known for its tee-shirts with sketches of interesting and influential people. Dana turned her artwork and passion into a unique style that has been sought after by big name partners including Theory, Madewell, and Uber, and recently launched a line with Urban Outfitters. Her work goes beyond fashion and exhibits powerful messages through its art, such as promoting women’s rights, honoring the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and raising money and awareness about animal cruelty.
Amanda shares her sister’s drive and motivation. She is the Manager of Corporate Development for J.Crew, and owns the financial forecast and the promotional/event calendar for the $4.2 billion company. Over her prior three years at J.Crew she was a Planner in the Women's Division for various departments including sweaters, outerwear, blazers, and pants. Amanda began her career with internships for various high-end designers, and then served in an executive development training program at Bloomingdales where she stayed for over four years with promotions leading to a Planner role overseeing women’s shoe buying. Amanda also finds time to volunteer in NYC – she previously assisted in a first grade classroom of a public school, and more recent she mentored low-income high school students through Minds Matter, empowering them to dream big and prepare for college and beyond.
