The Designer
As the daughter of artist parents - her father, a pioneer in the appropriation movement of the 1960’s, and her mother, a talented photo-realist landscape painter - it was perhaps inevitable that Claire would enter a creative field. She spent her early childhood in upstate New York in a nineteenth century home filled with antiques and art. As a young girl, she studied ballet and then focused on a career in fashion while attending Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles. This exposure to design and art remains a source of inspiration for the poetry in motion that Claire designs today.
Claire and Guy met in a nightclub in Hollywood and after going on a first date, it dawned on Claire that Guy matched the description of a "blind date" a girlfriend had been trying to arrange. She called her friend the next day, asked what his name was, and yes, she had met the same "Guy"! The rest, as they say is history and the pair married the same year they opened the business. As CEO of the company, Guy ensures Claire’s vision has come to fruition. Together, they collaborate on all marketing and direction for the brand.
