Chris is our voice of reason, systems fanatic, organizational champion, and purple-sweatshirt wearing fool. Being married to the boss can be tough, but he handles it well. Chris keeps this operation running smoothly and stops Liz from making any (too) crazy decisions. Chris oversees our finances and makes sure our website is as fun and easy for you to use as possible. When he isn't working hard on our finances, website, and operations, he's starting his next book - most likely by David Allen or Stephen Covey.

Alfie is our fixer-of-everything and “yes-let's-rearrange-all-the-studio-furniture-right-now”-guy. His quality of work matches the speed at which he sews, and he is an incredibly valued member of our team. Alfie loves Britney Spears and always knows the perfect song to play. He also pulls devious pranks on everyone in the studio, but we'll get even eventually. Watch your back, Alfie.

Colette is our ray of sunshine, queen of the Snapchat selfie, and occasional Tina Turner impersonator. She is a super talented seamstress and an expert with our silk garments and outerwear. When she isn't sewing, she's modeling in our campaigns, doing makeup on set, taking care of her beautiful son Sean, or teaching us how to dance.

Ashley is definitely the one you want with you when you get stranded in the wilderness. Ashley is our balancing agent - she keeps up with the crazy, but also reminds us all to stay focused and grounded. She introduced our team to “Yoga Moments,” and for that glorious almost nap-time in Savasana, we are eternally grateful. She is quick to learn new garments, is a pant-making pro, and keeps us grounded with podcasts and Icee breaks. She also brings us fresh veggies from her garden and takes the best puppy snapchats known to mankind.

Our #1 fan since the get-go, Suzi is the ES fairy who keeps our building looking fresh, our pantry full of goodies, and our minds at total ease. When she isn't camping, playing with her dachshunds, or scheming to acquire sheep farms, you can find her building displays for our showroom, painting a 4-square court in our parking lot, and preparing fresh salads for the team. There truly isn't anything Suzi can't do, and we're thankful this quality runs in her family, as well. ;)

We hope a bit of her amazing cheer arrives with them, too.
