What do you love most about your work:
It’s exciting to learn new facets of the industry as it changes and shifts. One of my favorite parts of my day-to-day is checking out the design prototypes as they come in—to see an idea born from a sketch into an actual garment is a very rewarding process.
One piece of advice you would give your 18-year-old self:
It will all work out, one way or another.

Your motto in life:
I apply this motto to all aspects of my life but it was especially relevant when I started my business. Plow through walls, trust your gut, and don’t listen to those that say that you can’t.
What is something that recently moved you:
The incredible way that the everyone rallied to help those in need in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and Irma.
What is the best gift you’ve ever received:

There is a great diner on the Upper East Side, Gracie Mews. I love their Greek Salad with chicken, though everything is delicious.

My sisters, who were my built-in best friends since birth. We are all still very, very close.

Low cut tops that you can wear sans bra. We have a bit of a 70s vibe at Ramy Brook so we are all about letting it hang loose.
