As a Dallas native now living and working in New York City I developed a passion for the arts quickly growing up — from theater to fashion. Particularly gravitating towards haute couture — it captured not only fashion but art as well, some pieces are art and that was fascinating to me. I graduated from design school and started my career in the apparel industry quickly.
In 2010 with a design and some business experience under my belt, I decided that is was time to take a leap of faith and officially start S.I.C. Couture. I had already been designing custom dresses for family, friends, and myself so I felt that my first collection should be all about the ultimate cocktail dress. In late 2011 I introduced my inaugural collection and continued with only designing dresses until spring 2013 when I introduced separates.
By early 2013 I completed my 5th collection — fall 2013. It was with this collection I felt that I found who and what S.I.C. Couture WAS and IS meant to be: adventurous, free spirit, and fearless. Each collection grows more each season with so much character and honesty to what the brand really is about.
Update: Now living in Dallas with my husband and our baby girl, Reese. I have now opened a boutique in Dallas called S.I.C. Couture. Here we house S.I.C. Couture, the brand but also curate pieces from other labels to add to your collection, such as Minkpink, People's Project LA, Sage the Label, and many others.
I believe that we are influenced or inspired rather by people daily, whether it's the way they dress or the way they carry themselves, hence where "contagious" becomes involved. I am inspired by my family, my friends, and amazing mentors that I interact with daily and they've each taught me something valuable in my life. I can't wait to continue to grow not only as a person but to grow S.I.C. Couture even further. So far, it's been a heck of a ride. And I feel like I've just truly begun this wonderful journey and can't wait to see what the future holds. So thank you for supporting the brand and myself. I truly appreciate it and thankful every single day.
