  • Whats your favorite part about conceptualizing a new design?The best part of creating a design is seeing something new and exciting come alive. Its about using our design expertise and making our products relevant for today.

    How do you personally stay up-to-date with fashion?For me, its effortless and so easy to keep up with fashion because I truly love it. I have tons of energy and must see every new movie, show, art exhibit, store, restaurant, and I read every fashion magazine. Being on the go at all times and in the know is so much a part of me.

    What do you think will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?This season retailers will love our festive brights as well as our Retro Riviera group, which is a modern take on summer seaside living. Retailers know that they can always count on Echo for great color and pattern.

    Whats your favorite part about conceptualizing a new design?That moment when you are inspired by something and a light bulb goes off in your head like a cartoon. The switch is flipped, it turns on, and you know youve hit the nail on the head!

    How do you personally stay up-to-date with fashion?I look at blogs, magazines, and watch movies. Although many times I start to see styles that are played out and have been done before, I ask myself what am I into at the moment and how can that influence what I do. I ask myself, What is next?

    What do you think will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?Retailers will be drawn to my collection because it has a strong impact and it is bold. It is not shy; doesnt play it safe and hide among the masses. It is timely. An example is my necklace Brass Monkey in honor of the passing of one of my heroes, Adam Yauch (MCA) of the Beastie Boys.

    Whats your favorite part about conceptualizing a new design?Turning a sketch into a sample is so exciting! At that instant, the sample product is still so new and yet to be seen by others; it is the moment when you can envision others wearing it and loving it.

    From where do you draw inspiration?I love to travel and planning what I would wear in a certain locale is a fun daydream-turned-reality exercise for me.

    Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?My greatest influences are the women who come into our stores or attend our events as I get to see them in action. They often tell me what they want to see from me coming up and I get to see how they translate my pieces into their accessories wardrobe. It is helpful to be this close to the consumer!

    From where do you draw inspiration?My biggest source of inspiration comes from traveling. Seeing new places, cultures and lifestyles in different countries really motivates me to create unique products. I spend a lot of time people watching, reading and learning about the latest trends and figuring out how we can integrate them into our scarves without being literal.

    What do you think will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?I think having a really unique line of scarves that are digitally printed will be a real draw. Scarves are a perfect gift for the holiday season and we have created 12 scarves each representing a sign of the zodiac incorporating colors and images from each sign.

    Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?My mom has been the greatest influence in my life. She has always had a keen sense of style. Growing up I noticed that she always saw the potential in things and even if something didnt look great, she would whip out her sewing machine and add some lace or buttons to make the item brilliant!

  • Describe your Transition/Spring 2013 collection and the trends you have focused on.My Spring 2013 collection is fresh and lively. I combine neutral colors with matching prints and use special textural fabrics, laces and hand painted stripes in colors that all work together. Basic black anchors my collection from season to season. I think of my collection as timeless. You can easily combine new collection pieces with items from previous seasons.

    From where do you draw inspiration?For inspiration, I travel around the world and draw from many things. I like Japanese designers who use a lot of black, as I do, and are very creative without adding more and more to their garments. I like refined simplicity with imaginative styling.

    What is your personal fashion philosophy?When designing my collection, I imagine an independent, strong woman who knows herself and wants her clothing to underline her character. She does not want to be extravagant but still wants to make a statement in a subtle way. My clothing gives her a better feeling, which gives her an even more positive vision of herself.

    Describe your Transition/Spring 2013 collection and the trends you have focused on.Always staying within our core values, our new collection is full of easy, drapey pieces consisting of lightweight woven rayons and modal knits, which piece together sheer fabrics and jerseys; all with a focus on hemlines, pops of bright color, stripes and sophisticated tie dyes. Boho-chic for today!

    From where do you draw inspiration?Travelling the world and living in California, I am inspired by the idea of beauty and comfort without compromising our environment.
