WHO WE ARE
Hannah Fastov : FOUNDER & CEO
Dash Dash Dot Dash Dash Dash
Hannah graduated from The George Washington University in 2012 with a degree in Art History and began her career in the fashion industry working in Merchandising and Product Development for prominent fashion brands, Brooks Brothers and rag & bone.
Entrepreneurship has always been her passion; it was just a matter of time until she found the right opportunity. In 2014, after living and working in Manhattan for 2 years, she was tired of carrying so many bags -- a handbag, a gym tote and a computer bag. Despite her considerable effort to find the perfect carry-all that could hold her dirty laundry, deodorant, shoes, work papers, snacks, laptop and wallet, she was at a loss.
While technology and the “athleisure wear” trend has made life a bit easier and more comfortable, the bag to carry all the accoutrements our lifestyle requires was missing from the market. Therefore, out of her desire to find the perfect work/gym bag, she developed the Infinity Bag.
Hannah currently lives in New York City in the coveted section of Murray Hill with her roommate of two years. To have moxie is to be courageous, adventurous, and tenacious. Hannah strives to lead her personal life as well as Dash Dot with these words as her guiding principles.
Hannah’s favorite activities include: running (currently in training for the 2016 NYC marathon), skiing, and snuggling on the couch with family and friends.
Favorite NYC work out classes: Shadowbox and flywheel
Favorite foods: Pickles, Tasti ‘D lite, and pasta
