Annette, co-owner, was raised in Charleston and began with an early interest in sewing that she learned from her mother, a tailor by trade. She enjoyed working with playful patterns and creating her own personal style by making clothes for herself, family, and friends. As her hobby evolved, she was presented with an opportunity to create intricate, delicate, one of kind custom gowns for beauty pageants. With a true love for fine fabrics and interior design, she began getting approached by designers to begin fabricating window treatments, draperies, and other soft goods. As demand increased, Annette brought on several fabricators to work alongside her. She is most passionate about thorough attention to detail and commitment to craftsman quality products. She is driven by her love for creating custom interiors as well as her motivation to find solutions for difficult design projects.
