Occupation: Founder of Women Design Network

Tell us a little about your business:

Women Design Network (WDN) was formed with a coterie of designers whose works stand on their own, but collectively offer women the basis for a core wardrobe that they can build upon and express their own personality. WDN has brought this group of designers together to showcase their talents, either individually or collectively, via Art Galleries, Trunk shows, either in stores or in homes, trade shows, and charitable events where a portion of sales are donated by the designers to the charity.
