Aaron Potts

Aaron was born and raised in Detroit, MI to a working class family with roots in the American South. A childhood filled with church, weekend fishing trips, going to work with his carpenter father and shopping with his dress-loving mama would shape his future view of art and design. He discovered fashion in high school and never looked back. He graduated from Parsons School of Design and went on to intern for Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan.

After an international career designing for Emanuel Ungaro, Anne Klein, Ellen Tracy, Escada, Tamara Mellon and others, the time was right for Aaron to create A.Potts. Through a lens of what Aaron calls “EVERYDAY EDITORIAL”, the brand embodies his embrace of creativity and  usefulness – pieces that are as special as they are practical. The collection is also an expression of Aaron’s love of beauty that unites and celebrates people of all races, sizes, ages and gender expressions.
