Meet the Makers
As a small business, we celebrate education, mentorship and individuality. The majority of our makers are fashion design students that come through the University of Cincinnati's DAAP program, changing paid interns every semester.
Each member that has been on our team have made a valuable contribution, leaving their mark on our shop processes and designs.
Put a bow on it. We teamed up with Bardot Bow Gallery (a female-owned and operated small business based in Ohio) to create this exclusive silk satin petite bow just for us. We love this beautiful bow for a bride or anytime you're looking to add feminine polish to your look.

Founded in 2018, I started Bardot Bow Gallery from a love of styling and juxtaposing vintage with a modern aesthetic. My studio is nestled among my growing family in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Textiles often inspire my designs - be it for their soft hand or luxurious look. I enjoy being a part of all that goes development of new designs including sewing, marketing and packing them to ship to their new home.
My small team includes Fashion Design interns at the University of Cincinnati DAAP program, also my alma mater. I enjoy mentoring them and appreciate their fresh approach to the design and process. I also work with a highly skilled local sewing partner for some of my production. The rest we make start to finish in house...literally!
I like to think that these accessories are like a new shade of lipstick, affordable and a fun way to romance the ordinary. My accessories are relatable to a wide range of girls and women - all seeking a sense of self and confidence. It's about elevating the everyday look - for the young professional, the mama in messy bun, or the woman in her prime.
I hope you like what we have to offer...we enjoy making it for you! Inspiring confidence and joy in women drives my creativity.
Thank you for being a part of my story,
