We are so excited for our Chloe and Isabel Trunk Show! Any company that supports women and creates jobs, we love! Even their mission statement has us excited…
” Our mission is to help tackle the financial needs of the modern woman – to provide the training and tools to accomplish her goals, whatever they may be.”
Here is some background on this very popular, and fast growing jewelry company!
I conceived of Chloe + Isabel as a place where smart, creative and confident women could play a significant role in creating an innovative new business model where they were at the center. Chloe + Isabel is both a brand and opportunity that combines elements of direct sales, retail and eCommerce with the sole purpose of providing a more meaningful experience to the modern woman. My mission was, and remains to this day, to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs through social retail.
Chloe + Isabel is the opportunity I wish I had when I was a young, ambitious woman with the goal of one day being my own boss. Today, I see in our Merchandisers that same drive I had when I first stepped out on my own, moving away from home at the age of 13 to pursue my education. I began working and saving up for school, and ultimately turned to a direct selling opportunity which paid my way through college. While it allowed me to make the money I needed, and gave me confidence in running my own business, I would have loved to have built my resume with an even wider set of skills, as well as been connected to a community of like-minded women.
After college graduation, I began a 15 year career in jewelry design, development, and merchandising at industry heavyweights like Target Corp., Macy’s, Gap Inc., and LVMH, as well as brands like Kenneth Cole, Cartier, Tiffany and Co. and Ippolita. In 2010, I was offered my dream job as a Chief Merchant of one of my favorite designer jewelry brands. At that time, the U.S. economy was suffering, and with the high unemployment rate, particularly for Gen Y, I kept asking myself, “What can I do with my experience and skillset that will make a real difference in this world, and for these young women?”
It had taken me years to climb the corporate ladder and gain the skills I needed to run my own fashion business. Here was a chance to share my knowledge with today’s women so they wouldn’t have to wait, or potentially never get the exposure they needed. I wanted to help them reach their goals, whether they were financial or skill-based. We can be her stepping-stone or her destination. Chloe + Isabel was created to be a brand people would love, and more importantly, an opportunity our Merchandiser could believe in.
Over here at Stephanie Horne, we LOVE Seavees. Comfort and styles that can’t be beat. Here is a little background on this innovative company… and a view of our current Seavees collection.
“Established in 1964, SeaVees is the original way to go casual. With a groundbreaking advertising campaign throughout the 1960s, SeaVees pioneered the transformation of the sneaker from gym shoe to casual shoe. For any social affair, one could show up in SeaVees; a comfortable sneaker with the sophistication of a dressier shoe.
Susana Monaco’s designs are best described by one word, basic… but in the BEST possible way. Her body con fabrics hug you in all the right places to make your basics look the best on you!
“Designer Susana Monaco caters her collection to the trendy young woman with just enough edge to turn heads. Bold, brightly colored knits are the centerpiece of the collection. Every piece aims to bring ease to fashion for an effortlessly elegant, yet modern, look. A Susana Monaco dress is comfortable enough for a casual dinner with friends, sophisticated enough for a day at the office or, with the addition of jewelry and stilettos, easily translates into a night out. This exquisite level of functionality is the brand’s claim to fame. It’s what draws the followers and keeps them.”
We love Trina Turks fun flirty styles! And we are not alone, celebrates have always loved Trina Turk as well! Check out some famous ladies dressed in Trina Turk, as well as a bio on the designer.
“A genuine California local, Trina Turk is inspired by the Golden State’s multicultural mix, creativity, craftsmanship, architecture, and landscape–a synergy that permeates her contemporary, colorful aesthetic. Infused with bold signature prints and dynamic hues unique to each collection, Trina’s modern and optimistic outlook meld the best of classic American design with a California confidence, incorporating beautiful fabrications and impeccable quality for the effortless elan and carefree glamour.”
With summer around the corner, and spring break… here, we are loving shoe brand Soludos! We have some amazing styles in-store now! And here is a little about the innovative shoe company that has our hearts, and soles 🙂
“Soludos was founded by Nick Brown in New York City in 2010. Nick was unable to find the traditional rope soled espadrilles he had grown up wearing on holiday along the Spanish Coast. Combining the clink of a glass ‘salud’ and the heat of the sun ‘sol’, Soludos was born.”
