About The AP

The Owner:

Thank you so much for stopping by! My name is Ellie and I am the owner and sole proprietor of The Aesthetique Philosophie, a woman-owned small business. In addition, I'm a mom of 2 amazing girls, one of which is on the Autism Spectrum (that's me and Lexi above).

As a former graphic designer, and lover of all things visual, I started The Aesthetique Philosophie to blend my passion for design with a celebration of the beauty in the neurodivergent and special needs community.

My teenage daughter has taught me what true beauty is by having the most pure and beautiful soul of anyone I've ever met. 

What's in a name?

Not to get too intellectual, because I'm much more right-brained, but Aesthetics is the philosophical study of beauty. Beauty is a subjective concept, and exists in the mind that observes it, or in the "eye of the beholder", as the saying goes.

Fortunately, our brain is an elastic, adaptable, amazing organ and most of us have the ability to see things in a new light when given the information we need to formulate our own opinions and views.

My aim is to give society a peek into the beauty of the special needs community by combining my products with a focus on the awesome individuals who are part of it. Read more about The Aesthetique Philosophie models here.

The more we are acquainted with people we aren't familiar with, the more our eyes and hearts are open to seeing the beauty beyond the label and ridding ourselves of some inaccurate stereotypes that cause more harm than good. 

My philosophy is that there is beauty in everyone. This is where The Aesthetique Philosophie got its name. I hope that through my brand, I can help empower individuals of all abilities to feel confident in who they are.

Thank you for being a part of my mission to help support this amazing and resilient community.
