In 2018 I launched Modern Picnic with the mission to provide working girls with a chic alternative to the traditional lunchbox.
After graduating from college in 2016, I moved into New York City to start my job in retail. Every day I would bring my lunch to work because, let’s face it, bringing your lunch is faster, cheaper and healthier. But I noticed there were no fashionable or functional ways to do so. I was forced to carry my lunch in paper bags, plastic bags or old shopping bags... not cute. I didn't want to compromise my look for my lunch, and knew that I wasn't the only one.
It was clear that the traditional lunchbox needed a makeover, and from there, Modern Picnic was born!
