Permission To Be Yourself

2016 has been a year of change for Rose Red & Lavender. We closed our retail location, moved twice and opened another retail location. We have shed a chrysalis.

I started my business in 2008 after the birth of my daughter, Lavender.

Prior to that I designed and built window displays, museum exhibits and provided printed collateral for special events. My clients included Chanel, Disney, The Smithsonian, Cole Haan, The NFL and Deutsche Bank.
My single life was fun. I traveled all over the world, worked hard and played hard. Every project was different and each presented its own challenges. I learned all about different manufacturing techniques and was known for working with clients that were very, shall we say, particular.  As an account manager you have to know how to construct something based on a napkin sketch and what resources to tap for a project, it’s all about the details. You have to be an engineer, project manager, designer, psychologist and sales-person all rolled into one. I knew that people just wanted to be heard and not judged. Listening is the most important part of design.
