For Atelier Saucier founders Nikki Reed and Staci Inspektor, their meet-cute more than a decade ago was basically the business version of love at first sight. From the first moment they met at a mutual friend's party in Los Angeles, Reed says something just felt different. Inspektor adds, “We just knew from the start that we wanted to build a brand together.
