The bulk of my fashion design experience has been in the design and development of children’s clothing and accessories in New York and Los Angeles. Clothpony was founded in 2005 as a high end children's clothing line designed and manufactured in downtown LA. It produced several successful seasons, receiving the 'Best in Show' award at ENK New York in 2007, and selling to boutiques across the country and on Etsy. Little did I know that it would eventually morph into a contract design business. In 2012 I ventured into the role of full-time freelancer working with small companies and start ups in LA and the surrounding area. My designs have appeared in a full range of retail settings, including Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Giggle under the labels Bees & Dragons, Monster Republic, mBaby, Quinn + Fox, and Lucky Jade to name a few. In 2016 I joined Angel Dear Inc and relocated to Brooklyn, NY.
One thing runs through my 18 years in fashion: the unfettered beauty of function and simplicity. Be it the abundant inspiration I find in art and architecture, graphic design, theatre, exploring new places...it is the women in my life who have and continue to influence me; I draw on them all to design quality clothing for modern life with children that allows us all to experience the joy of simply beautiful things.
