No designer should feel held back by the corporate system.

You deserve to love what you do and get paid what you're worth.

Calling all designers

Because when designers are set up for success, they have the space to come alive in their gifts, contribute to the world the way they were created to, and experience more creative, emotional, and financial freedom.

Most designers are overworked & undervalued because they haven't been set up for success. I believe the apparel industry should be a place of creative collaboration (not competition) so designers can come alive in their creativity and get paid what they deserve.

The tangible things they never taught us in business or design school, on how to grow and thrive in your job and career.

Ten years ago, I was broke, miserable, and overworked.

In my 10+ years working as a designer in the fashion industry, I found myself battling a corporate system not set up for creative success.

I worked 10-16 hour days, 6-7 days a week, without a dime of overtime. I've even worked an entire month with only 1 day off! My job was literally my life. And I learned the hard way that more time does not equal more money, the next promotion or being seen as valuable at work.
