What challenges have you had growing your brand?
Balancing everything ourselves is definitely the most challenging part. However, we love that we are able to oversee every aspect of the business – creative, business, sales, etc. Every challenging experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. We learn something new every single day.
What sets you apart from other designers?
We are the premier brand of long sleeve and full-length eveningwear. We recognized a significant void in the market for elegant silhouettes that were both contemporary and at an affordable price point. Our brand gets a lot of attention not only because our designs are bold and elegant, but also because we have a really unique concept that is new and fresh and unlike that of any other brand.
Who is your fashion icon and why?
Princess Diana. Her style was nothing short of elegant and graceful. She had her own unique flair of style and exuded complete confidence. Not only was she a fashion legacy, but she inspires us with her dedication and contributions to humanitarian causes.
If you could dress anyone past or present, who would it be?
Princess Diana, Michelle Obama, and Angelina Jolie. These women define what it means to be elegant, bold, strong, and confident.
If you were a Chic Spy Agent, what would be your code name?
Charmante Femme meaning charming woman in French.
