Last evening I visited the showroom to map out the plan. In just 31 days, the doors will be open. I cannot even believe that this is happening. I kept telling my parents to pinch me. I graduated from Moore College of Art & Design in 2007 with a BFA in Fashion Design. If you would’ve told me almost 9 yrs ago that I would one day open my own showroom, I would’ve laughed and probably punched you. I went to school to become a designer, a designer for a company based in NYC. That was the dream, the plan the motive… I graduated, moved back to Central PA with my parents and was on the job search. I quickly learned that the Big Apple wasn’t for me. I enjoyed my time at school in Center City Philly… that was big enough for me. I suppose I became an introvert, or maybe it was countless rejection from numerous job interviews. I would take the Amtrak train from Harrisburg to NY, interview with a company and go back home. When interviewers realized I lived in Central PA, it was like an immediate NO. So I continued to build my portfolio with personal work of collections, worked full-time as a retail manager, even worked a summer at my alma matter traveling back and forth, would hold fashion shows in NYC, go for interviews and even tried out for a few fashion reality shows…
After my 2013 Collection I decided to take a break. I wasn’t ready to quit… so I took some time to focused on my life. At the beginning of 2015 I had a clear head and was ready to Rock N’Roll.
Fast Forward to Today 2016 … Here I am keys in hand, opening the door, the new chapter of my life. I can’t believe this is happening. I am overwhelmed with love and support for my family and friends. Especially my parents and hubby. Without you guys… none of this would be possible.
Are you ready for what’s to come? Bring it 2016.
