Meet Our Team
Founder / Designer / CEO
Karina began her interest in fashion at a young age. Her mother taught her how to sew with an appreciation for hard work and attention to detail. She carried those lessons into adult life when she started making clothing for herself. Karina felt she needed a dress that would go from day to night, yet feel comfortable all while still being easy to care for in her busy life.
With all this in mind, she launched a dress company from her home in Upstate New York in 2008. Her vision was to create dresses for every woman. Karina felt there was a real need for a fashion line that celebrates women and promotes positivity. She truly believes in the innate beauty of women when they accept and love themselves as they are.
Besides creating and overseeing her own successful clothing company, Karina loves thrift and antique shopping, cooking, volunteering and interior design. She's a passionate animal lover - you've probably noticed her dog, Bodhi, in our logo! She also has two adorable cats named Gracie and Henry and recently added another furry friend to family, Blanca, a rescue dog from the SATO project.
