Dedication to craftsmanship
I believe in uniting meticulous craftsmanship with natural/breathable materials in superb textures and colors.
Placing style on equal footing with comfort empowers me to create clothing that moves with your body while also looking and feeling great.
I believe every woman wants to look her best, and that her best expresses who she is.
I honed my fashion illustration skills at Parsons School of Design and technical skills at Fashion Institute of Technology, graduating with honors. I worked on Seventh Avenue in the fashion industry for several years before deciding to attend business school. While at New York University, I minored in environmental management. I founded two student organizations; I was the founder of the Environment Council of Stern (ECOS), and co-founder of Entrepreneurs Exchange. I graduated from NYU’s Stern School of Business with a bachelor’s degree in international marketing and an MBA in international finance.
To better understand the fundamentals of sustainable practice, I pursued a PhD focused on sustainable business practice at the University of Arizona’s School of Natural Resources. (Dissertation completed, but not defended.) That knowledge was the final input for creating a sustainable women’s clothing design business.
It was always my intent to combine my business and fashion skills to create a company that would reflect my love for fashion while also applying the sustainable practice concepts that I continue to teach at the University of Arizona.
I’ve been creating sustainable clothing since 2013.
