“Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.”- Elon Musk

His long-time interest in electric cards led to his founding of Tesla Motors in 2004. From energy, to transport, to healthcare, Elon Musk is consistently disrupting industries with his larger-than-life plans to improve how we live day-to-day. Elon takes his physics-based mindset known as “first principles” into each industry, allowing him to focus on the fundamental truths and build from the ground up.

Model Atelier focuses on elongated frames, a fit that has been long overlooked by mainstream fashion brands. 

Robin didn’t hesitate to create an innovative way to bring fashion-forward during the pandemic with her Model Atelier Essentials line, featuring garments with a built-in facemask.
