I just got word today that Chelsea Cook (a former @home shop gal) just landed the new technical designer position at Betsey Johnson. Chelsea was a customer of mine while she was attending the Savannah College of Art and Design. After she graduated she hung around Savannah working for me and saving money for her big move to NYC. If I sound like a proud mama, I am. All of my girls have gone on to great successes and this just adds to the ongoing list of amazing accomplishments.
I would like to think that Chelsea's wedding dress design for Halligan (and her sweet disposition & love of ruffles) got her the job. Betsey sure hired a winner.
