The name came to me during a brainstorming session in my college dorm, I was putting together an independent fashion show for myself & fellow lingerie classmates who wanted to participate and I called it “New York fashion Between the Sheets”, that was a mouthful so the rest got dropped and Between the Sheets fashion show came to be. I ran the event for 3 years between 2005-2007 and after working in the industry I trademarked the name in preparation to launch wholesale and ship my first collections in 2010.
We’re coming up on our 10 yr anniversary as a brand but what’s even crazier is that the name began 14 years ago in my college dorm room. In the show’s third year, when I was a college senior, a big accomplishment was getting myself and few fellow students covered in a write up in WWD 🙏🏽 also an image of my final walk with modes in pieces I sewed (my files from back then are a mess so I don’t know which photographer took this photo but it’s either Jon Perez or Bob Nittoli)

We’re collecting all of my March Meet the Maker posts here on the blog for ease of reading and all of you who might not be on instagram or facebook. It was a great opportunity to share a bit more about our brand and hope it helps you get to know me and BTS a little better!
