Q&A with Mary “Marusya” Grace Godfrey

How did you start your company?

I formed Anagrassia when my collegiate swimming career ended prematurely. With all the extra time on my hands, I rediscovered the fashion hobbies of my youth.

Mary Grace Godfrey

When Marusya was in Grade 6, she wrote a book about being a fashion designer. Turns out, when you put things out into the universe, they really are more likely to happen. Since college, she’s completed courses in costume design, worked in theatre, and started her own company (following in her entrepreneurial father’s footsteps).

Her entire family is creative—and incredibly athletic. Marusya was a competitive swimmer in college, her brother plays college football (“go Ball State Cardinals!”), and her dad’s a New York Giants Super Bowl champion. On a perfect Saturday, you’ll find Marusya watching the University of Michigan Wolverines, or designing a new handbag.
