About the Brand
Born and raised in the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, Victoria knew from an early age that she was going to be a fashion designer. She continued on to study in New York City at Parsons the New School for Design as well as Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art and Design to achieve the skills necessary to accomplish that childhood dream. After completing internships and freelancing for companies such as Walter, Rebecca Taylor, Urban Outfitter’s and Club Monaco, Victoria began to visualize her brand. She entered the Philadelphia Magazine Fashion Project contest and was chosen to make her proposed design, a luxurious wool and leather swing coat, for the magazine’s September issue. People began to take notice of her line, inspiring her to continue developing her line with the goal of having it available for purchase at local boutiques.
