Non-Member was inspired by the thoughtful unfussiness of 1930s leisure — you know, those looks that took you from the clay court to a post-game martini without missing a beat. We’re a female-founded, two-woman show that began when we lost our jobs during the pandemic and decided to take a chance on an entrepreneurial calling.

The idea for Non-Member started with a thrifted 1960s tennis dress– which is now our best-selling Leisure Dress. During lockdown, when the only opportunity to leave the house was for socially-distanced activities like tennis, biking, running, etc– this vintage exercise dress was a reprieve from the monotony of the WFH uniform of leggings and sweatpants. It was extra motivation to get fresh air, check out the local parks and courts, and break a sweat; because it was also an opportunity to feel dressed up, feminine, and creative.  

When we started the brand, we knew that our clothing was different from a lot of what’s available in the activewear market. The name Non-Member, for us, is a nod to the spirit of doing things differently; from standing out from the crowd. It’s about being outside, whatever that means to you.  

We hope that you’ll continue to follow along as we grow. Our Spring/Summer 2022 collection will focus on high-impact movement. Think supportive sports bras for HIIT and yoga classes, lightweight, breathable running shorts, and a restock of our favorite pieces– all with the timeless, vintage feel that defines our brand.

Welcome to Non-Member: apparel you can play in. You belong here.
