The Wild Collectives

Meet Whitney Bansin, CEO, Founder and Lead Designer of The Wild Collective. She knows her city. She’s a Las Vegas resident of over 25 years and graduated with a business degree from UNLV.

Before she was 20 years old, she launched One Luv Agency, a fashion, hair & makeup and styling agency focused on styling celebrities and working with top clients from around the world. Most notably, she ran and oversaw all beauty creative direction for Zappos retail for 7 years.

Her fashion and styling background provided the foundation for her knowhow with apparel. Since 2014 Whitney has been designing unique fashion pieces and accessories, working with major resorts like MGM Resorts and Caesar’s on the Las Vegas Strip. When the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights came to the city in 2017, she was tapped to create fashion-forward apparel that complimented the fan merchandise. She quickly saw the opportunity: fan sports apparel was expected, limited and lacked fashion appeal. This insight led her to launch The Wild Collective designing fashion-forward, licensed sports apparel. 

The passion and success of her early collections catapulted her into major league and collegiate sports. The Wild Collective is now officially licensed across the NHL, NBA, WNBA, MLB, MLS, multiple college teams and has a local license for the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders.

“I aim to be uplifting, resilient and inspiring in all I do. I’m a mother of two young girls, and I’m constantly thinking about how I can make the world a better place for them. I want to show my daughters that there are no boundaries they can’t break.”
