I’m Allison, an interior designer with business roots in the fashion design and retail business. To me, the business of chic fashion often transcends and translates into chic interiors, via color, texture and finishes for the home. Here, is where the two meet in my world.
I was raised and educated in Orange County, California. I started my career as a buyer for a large trendy store group based in LA. Once promoted to Merchandise Manager, it didn’t take long to realize New York was the place to be if I wanted a career in fashion. I soon moved to New York and traveling the globe became an intricate part of my job. It was challenging work and I loved it. Our team attended runway shows in London, Paris and Milan, seasonally. We scouted cities, trend-spotting the latest in color, fabrics and silhouettes. Frequenting Florence, Amsterdam, St.Tropez or Tokyo. Seasonally, we designed and produced our line in the mills and factories of Europe, Asia, and India.
After more than a decade in New York City, unexpectedly, a great opportunity came along beckoning me back to Los Angeles. It was fate because it was at home in Los Angeles, where I met and married the man of my dreams.
So, while seeking another avenue to invest my energy and experience, I made the transition from chic looks in fashion to the fashion of chic interiors.
It became a natural transition and a new passion…
