Newman wins Harvard awardPublished 5:59pm Friday, June 15, 2012
Emerging from 130 global entries, Washington, D.C.-based Knock out!® founder Angela Newnam (MBA 1996) received the $50,000 grand prize for her line of high–performance undergarments (for both men and women) that provide odor control and wicking using all-natural cotton.
“Outerwear and athletic wear have long been associated with higher tech fabrics, but NoTrace® technology is raising the performance bar for intimates,” Newman said.
With strong response to her first collection of women’s panties (available in a variety of styles and colors), the company quickly expanded into premium men’s undergarments.
The company’s innovative fabrics are available in women’s and men’s T-shirts, underwear and other garments in more than 250 retailers and e-tailers in the United States and Canada, including Tryon House in Tryon.
Newnam graduated from Tryon High School and now resides in Washington, D.C. with her husband and three children.
