Christina Kay Beauvais, President and founder of EmBraced in Comfort LLC, is the recipient of the AATCC Young Entrepreneur Award. Beauvais is being recognized for integrating her knowledge of engineering with apparel design and merchandising to deliver a niche market of comfortable, functional, and protective garments for patients wearing braces for limb disorders.
 
An engineer, Beauvais worked with Usha Chowdhary from Central Michigan University for insights into the textile aspects of her project. Beauvais created a garment that was simple enough for a child to manage in the restroom while in-brace, without interfering with the structural integrity and/or gripping strength of the brace. 
 
Her small in-house factory began taking undergarment bodysuit orders for children dealing with scoliosis. Her bodysuit design received a US patent. Beauvais expanded her garment line to include t-shirts and shorts designed especially for male and female brace-wearers and have sold her undergarments to scoliosis brace patients all over the world.
 
The award will be presented at the AATCC International Conference, which is being held April 1-3, 2014, at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Asheville, NC. USA.
 
The Young Entrepreneur Award
This award recognizes young entrepreneurs (less than 40 years of age) operating in the broader textile industry. An entrepreneur is defined as a person who has possession of a new enterprise, venture, or idea, and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and outcomes of the creation.
