THE STORY | ABOUT THE OWNER
It all started in sixth grade when I found out I had scoliosis and unfortunately it was not a mild case. My spine was curving as I grew and in order to halt its progress I was required to wear a hard plastic back brace twenty hours a day until puberty was over. As a young vulnerable teenager, I was ashamed and chose to keep my brace a secret. This meant wearing baggy t-shirts everyday as my disguise. During this period, I started dreaming about all the cute tops I wanted to wear but could not. I felt so confined and restricted in terms of my movement of course and my style. When my growth plates finally closed there was no more brace and let’s just say I went crazy with wearing all the clothes I ever wanted. Two years later I found myself applying to the best fashion business school in the world... the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. I found my calling and to my surprise, I got in! Of course I went and studied Textile Development. Through my education at FIT and several internships and jobs in the fashion industry in NYC I knew I was ready to go after my dream. I always knew I would be a business owner. I did not expect it to happen this fast, but I had a lightning bulb moment.
