Stefanie Taylor Founder, Zaxie by Stefanie Taylor
It’s when life gets you down that you learn and grow the most, if you realize this you find the strength to do great things.
A graduate of Fordham University in NYC, Stefanie has been at the helm of her family’s three-generation accessories business since 2010. During her tenure, she has worked with America’s largest retailers to design, curate and manufacture top selling accessory assortments, growing the company three-fold. With Gennaro thriving, Stefanie saw the opportunity to expand how they service the market, by creating a direct to consumer brand which would deliver high quality, on-trend product at the best available price point. The new DTC brand, ZAXIE by Stefanie Taylor, successfully launched in 2018 by drawing upon a lifetime of experience in the fashion jewelry space, keen understanding of consumer demands and providing a thoughtfully designed assortment of sparkling and glamorous products—from essentials you can wear every day on repeat to show stopping statement designs for your big day and every special moment in between.
In addition to her professional pursuits, Stefanie continues to be involved in the local community with active involvement in several non-profit causes, with a focus on empowering and mentoring women to attain leadership roles, making her one of Rhode Island’s most thoughtful, accomplished and successful entrepreneurs.
