In 2011 I began my design journey with the Gilt.com in NYC. What initially started as a transactional flash sale affiliation quickly evolved into a full time design partnership with Shine both designing and creating complete furniture collections for their rapidly growing furniture division.
For four years we created chic and timeless collections – designing fearlessly across categories including lighting, bedding, artwork, rugs and furniture. In addition to the Shine Collections, Senior Management asked me to design private label collections for them under their house brand of Verlaine, which gave me a great perspective of design through another brand’s lens. The most rewarding part of this relationship, however, was the creative control of all marketing and editorial assets. The photo shoots and sample development took me to far off and wonderful places…it was a truly an amazing experience!
