A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER & CEO

from our company headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina

FUN FACTS

 

  • When I worked at Ralph Lauren Corporation, I had the honor of being one of the few employees who was able to sit in design meetings with Ralph himself and learn directly from one of the most iconic fashion designers of all time.

  • I was also personally hired by Sean Combs to be the Fabric Director for his Sean John Fall 2008 New York Fashion Week show, while also being filmed alongside Sean for the MTV documentary, "If I Were King." See the trailer here.

  • When I worked in New York as the Fabric and Trim Manager at J. Mendel, I had the opportunity to hand-select the sapphire blue silk chiffon fabric for Teri Hatcher's  custom made  gown for the 2005 Emmy Awards, for her nomination for her role as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for Desperate Housewives. See image here.

  • Oscar de la Renta once asked me to create original illustrated designs for one of his New York Fashion Weeks shows, a truly memorable moment. Illustrations coming soon.

WELCOME

LEARN AS YOU LAUNCH™ PHILOSOPHY

Using our Learn as You Launch™ philosophy, our founder and in-house team will guide, educate, and mentor you step-by-step through the launch process, so you can save time and avoid costly mistakes, and always have an expert and knowledgeable team by your side, every step of the way.  

AT-A-GLANCE

We can help cultivate your vision from inception to end product for your womenswear, menswear, teen, childrenswear, layette, mommy and me, or daddy and me apparel brand in any product category. There is no need to have any background in fashion design, as we bring our expertise to you.

WHY HIRE US

  • Save Time and Money: You'll never have to worry about wasting precious time and money dealing with untrustworthy vendors who try to take advantage of you (which is all too common).

  • One-Stop Launch Platform: You'll never have to stress out managing your launch on your own and trying to juggle and keep track of all of your different contacts and resources who are spread out everywhere. Our founder manages the entire process for you, under one roof.

  • Industry Insider Resources: When you become a coveted #LYCclient, you gain access to the same insider resources that the top designers in the fashion industry use, from factories and fabric and trim vendors, to editors of top fashion and lifestyle magazines and fashion blogs.

  • Made in the USA: Since we only partner with trusted U.S. based apparel manufacturers, you can proudly own a "Made in the USA" label. 

  • Personal Launch Team: Think of us as your very own personal team of expert apparel launch consultants dedicated to your apparel launch. Pretty fancy if we do say so ourselves.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGIES

From our project management tool that allows you to check the status and timeline of your project 24/7 and where all team tasks are assigned, to the remote white board tool we will use to create your design concepts, to video conference fit sessions that you can participate in from anywhere in the world, our state-of-the-art technologies allow you to launch your apparel brand from the comfort of your home or office, with no travel needed, unless desired.

We've thought of everything so you can relax, have fun, learn, and enjoy the most exciting creative and educational journey of a lifetime!
