What is the best part of your job?
Do I have to pick just one? I love the variety of challenges that come up on a daily basis which require creative solutions - and then seeing the results pay off. There is something extremely gratifying about building something from the ground up, watching ideas turn into reality, and producing a quality product that women really love.
Where do you go for inspiration?
I am always seeking out inspiration. I like watching what people wear in different settings, whether it be walking down the streets of NYC, or out at different occasions and events. I look at what these women's staple pieces are that can be easily translated from day to night. When I design a Cami, I want to make sure that it its a versatile piece that can be worn to work, to dinner or to a formal affair.
What items do you find yourself Keeping most often?
Shoes! I can’t resist an amazing pair of pointy pumps or strappy sandals. There are so many amazing new colors and styles out for Spring, I want to Keep them all!
Which celebrity has style that inspires you?
I adore Kate Hudson, her red carpet stye is so simple, yet elegant and chic. Miranda Kerr is another one, she is always very put together. I love that she can be out in a pair of boyfriend jeans and flats and still look impeccably dressed and laid back at the same time.
What are three summer essentials everyone should have ready in their wardrobe?
Aviator sunglasses, a great pair of nude sandals and a Cami!
