“Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen”
Hi I’m Lisa, I’m a passionate designer with a bachelors degree from the University of Washington in Fashion Design and Textile Science- not sure how active the science part is, but my passion for design has surely increased.
…a little background history….
I’ve had a very robust career in the fashion design industry, designing for companies such as Unionbay, Cutter&Buck, Nordstrom private labels: Zella girls, Tucker &Tate, Treasure & Bond, and many freelance companies such as Nordstrom, Pendleton, Trina Turk, Kristen Blake, Eddie Bauer, Shah Safari, and a few recent upstarts launching soon!
My career has taken me to many of the common fashion cities that you might imagine and a few unexpected ones as well: Paris, London, Munich, Hong Kong, Seoul, Bangladesh, New Delhi, Montreal, Toronto, NYC, LA, SLC, San Diego, Miami, Naples and on an on…all for business. I have never lost my luggage, can you believe that? !!!
While at Unionbay I traveled to Hong King 35 times in 8 years, my frequent flyer miles were so astronomical I was able to fly my husband to HK one trip for free (!) with me and we had a hotel upgrade and stayed at the newly opened Grand Hyatt in the Hong Kong harbor. My travel wings have been spent and my idea of a great vacation is usually within my time-zone! (or a staycation!)
I have been a freelance designer for more than 10 years, basically since we moved from the city to the country and the commute into Seattle made a full-time downtown city job an impossibility…. I’m just saying “no” to traffic! I am currently taking on some new interior projects and I am so excited to share them with you.
I would like to thank you for your support and encouragement as I document my design life and share insights into how I create. I would like to thank my family, my husband and son for humoring my use of our home as a creative laboratory and not always using the kitchen and dining room for their intended use! I thank God daily for His many blessings and I hope to honor Him on this design journey.
