Heather Hasson and co-founder Trina Spear correctly diagnosed the problem plaguing the medical scrubs industry: Options were limited to ill-fitting uniforms that were available for purchase only at inconvenient hours in uninspiring places (think medical supply stores also specializing in knee braces). Figs redesigned scrubs in high-tech fabrics and trendy silhouettes, and it brought in just over $23 million in revenue in 2017, and then over $100 million in 2018. The co-founders also decided to branch into brick-and-mortar retail with a pop-up shop in West Hollywood. “A bunch of our Instagram fans kept stopping by the office wanting to see the clothes. That’s when we decided we need a physical location,” Hasson says. This year, Figs became profitable and started expanding internationally (to Canada). More permanent outposts are planned for 2020.--Lindsay Blakely
