Fall 2022 Inspiration

I love to write about my mom so I thought I’d share a few stories you might find interesting as they impact my design aesthetic daily.

My first memories of loving color, pattern, design and style came from watching my mom. Everyday was a new adventure. She could be found wallpapering the living room, reupholstering chairs, making Xmas ornaments, baking and frosting beautiful cakes and on and on.

On the weekend she transformed for Saturday nights out with my Dad. Her hair and makeup ritual was fascinating to me. Her style was impeccable. The transformation I saw in her was magical.

I started raiding her closet when I was about 12 and continued to do so for the next 40 years! We had so many conversations about fit and what made something special. She taught me to appreciate fabric and how it drapes and moves. She instinctively knew when something looked right and when it didn’t.

I take her lessons with me every day as I design for women just like her and like me.


About Suzanne

I design my collection for real women leading real lives. We all want to look relevant and current, but in our own way, reflecting our own sense of self and style. While I’m guilty of pouring over the latest fashion magazines, I’m often thinking, “Who really wears that?”. I aim to enhance your style, not dictate it.
