From where do you draw inspiration?

My biggest source of inspiration comes from traveling. Seeing new places, cultures and lifestyles in different countries really motivates me to create unique products. I spend a lot of time people watching, reading and learning about the latest trends and figuring out how we can integrate them into our scarves without being literal.


What do you think will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?

I think having a really unique line of scarves that are digitally printed will be a real draw.  Scarves are a perfect gift for the holiday season and we have created 12 scarves each representing a sign of the zodiac incorporating colors and images from each sign.


Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?

My mom has been the greatest influence in my life. She has always had a keen sense of style. Growing up I noticed that she always saw the potential in things and even if something didn’t look great, she would whip out her sewing machine and add some lace or buttons to make the item brilliant!
