Say Hello to
“A fashion designer. A working gal. A mother. A wife. A woman of many talents, passions, and
My name is Britta, and I am an irrefutable enthusiast of beautifully curated design, expressive fashion,
and community building. For over two decades, I have been blessed to enjoy a successful career within the fashion industry. After attending NDSU and the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC for my design education, I enjoyed a widely successful career within NYC for over 15 years, at which time I relocated to the Pacific Northwest to design for Perry Ellis International. I have worked on massive campaigns that represented over $60 million in sales to micro-projects for independent, high-end fashion houses. Jantzen to Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan to Victoria’s Secret, Nike and beyond – I have been fortunate enough to enjoy a tremendous career that has brought me joy, growth, and satisfaction in my life.
I have a deep appreciation for artistic expression and great design, and I believe that fashion invites us to express ourselves in a way that is both authentic and powerful. Above all, I love sharing ideas, thoughts, tips, tricks, and advice with others who are either just starting their journey, trying to advance their career, or seeking to offer mentorship for others in this community.
For the last five years, it has been my goal to provide aspiring fashion designers and style-inspired individuals with a space that offers expert advice from those who have come before and an online community for those who want to grow together.
