Olga's Origin Story: You Are Your Own Miracle
The Fabled woman is a badass. She’s not cutesy or demure, she’s not any of the things women physicians are pressured to be in order to “succeed”. She’s wholly herself, and it’s her that I look to when I need a confidence boost, when I need reminding that I deserve more than the medical establishment has been able to provide. Founding Fabled was a way for me to help other women physicians, but it's also how I manifest even deeper self-compassion and self-acceptance. With every piece of Fabled workwear, I want to inspire us to let our inner badass shine through.
