Looking at your collection, it\u2019s clear Sutton Lasater Jewelry covers multiple styles. There are some minimal pieces, some boho, some even a little preppy. How do you describe your design aesthetic?

I honestly design things that I would wear myself. I think personal style is a fluid concept that can be a mixture of many different aesthetics and can change based on your mood or what you\u2019re doing that day. Everything I create has some similarities. For the most part, nothing is overly trendy. I focus more on classic metals than bright colors, stones or crystals. It is all refined \u201ceveryday\u201d jewelry that could be worn for almost any occasion.

How did you begin working with jewelry, and when did you launch your line?

I have always loved to make things with my own hands. It\u2019s a bit of a puzzle to take an idea and make it work and extremely satisfying to create something beautiful.

When I was in high school, my parents became caretakers for an elderly couple in our neighborhood. Mrs. Barca was a fashionable woman and collected costume jewelry her whole life. When my family helped the Barcas move into a nursing home, she gave me a five-drawer dresser filled with her costume jewelry collection. A lot of it was broken or outdated, so I started re-creating the pieces. When I first started selling jewelry, everything was a vintage re-creation. I liked working with those materials, but it wasn\u2019t my personal style and took a lot of effort to source, so I eventually started searching for other materials.

Although I started making jewelry when I was a senior in high school, I didn\u2019t register my business until after grad school, when I had more time to make jewelry, build a website and try to grow my business.

Do you have a favorite type of piece to design?

I love to make earrings! My personal jewelry style is pretty practical, and I like to wear earrings more than necklaces and bracelets because they are out of the way. I don\u2019t make a ton of bracelets because sizing can be difficult. Even half of a centimeter makes a huge difference in the way a bracelet fits, and everybody\u2019s wrists are different. It\u2019s so important to me that customers get something they love and that works for them.

What is your creative process like? Where do you work, and how long does it take for you to make each piece?

I work in a spare bedroom in my apartment that serves as my office and overflow closet space. My desk has a big work surface and is always covered in supplies and pieces I\u2019m working on.

If I know what I\u2019m going to make, I can get things done pretty quick \u2013 usually five to 15 minutes. I try to envision the final piece when I purchase materials so I know I\u2019m buying things that are practical for me to work with. If I have materials that I like but am not sure what to create with them, then it takes me a little longer to conceptualize, prototype and finalize the piece.

What do you look for when selecting materials?

Besides quality, I look for supplies that are unique and stand out. I try to find things that I haven\u2019t seen other designers, especially in St. Louis, working with.

You create custom jewelry for weddings. What is the process like when you\u2019re working with a wedding party?

First I talk with the bride to learn some basics: the theme or aesthetic of her wedding, color scheme, personal style, budget and any special requests. I will come to the next meeting with some jewelry suggestions, we will make revisions and a final decision, and then I\u2019ll create the pieces. I always encourage brides to choose jewelry that their bridesmaids will wear after the wedding. Many brides pick out individual pieces for each bridesmaid so they can give them a truly personalized gift.

Modern brides want their wedding dress to wow from all angles, and today\u2019s top designers have delivered, unveiling an incredible variety of soft and romantic gowns, as well as dramatic and flirty dresses for spring. \u201cPeople are spending a lot of money on their wedding day pictures, so brides want their gowns to be beautiful from 360 degrees,\u201d says Debbie Rudawsky, owner of Town & Country Bridal Boutique in Clayton.

As today\u2019s brides express their personalities through their wedding dresses, local boutique owners are seeing both traditional and modern designs \u2013 with a twist, says Stephanie Fagyal, owner of Berrybridge Bridal Boutique in Ladue. \u201cThere is a lot of lace, then there is a lot of illusion [sheer paneling] \u2013 it\u2019s split between a fuller ballgown that\u2019s more traditional and a beaded dress that\u2019s a little sexier,\u201d she explains, adding that couture designers including Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier offer selections for either personality. \u201cThere are so many options, so everybody is able to create something that is very uniquely them.\u201d

For classic, romantic brides, there are light, flowy fabrics, from unique lace to silk crepe and organza, in long-sleeve and sleeveless gowns from top bridal designers such as Elizabeth Fillmore and Claire Pettibone, says Kristin Lucks Shelton, co-owner of Fleur de Lis Bridal Boutique in Clayton.

For modern brides who want to show off their curves, Rudawsky says mermaid and fit-and-flare dresses with eye-catching accents, such as exaggerated ruffles and stunning trains, as well as dramatic cuts, including plunging necklines and low backs, are on trend. And for the ultimate wow-factor, there are illusion neck and back panels for a sheer, sexy look, she adds.

Another creative and expressive trend for spring weddings is bridal separates, which allow brides to mix and match separates. Items such as a beaded corset or lace and illusion bodysuit, paired with an organza or tulle skirt by leading designers including Martina Liana, Wtoo by Watters and Lea-Ann Belter, can be combined to create a special look that no other bride has worn before, Rudawsky notes. \u201cA wedding gown is the largest garment purchase a woman might ever make, and she will wear it for 12 to 14 hours,\u201d she says. \u201c[Bridal] separates add more value for your dollar because they are something you can wear again on your honeymoon, anniversary or other special occasion. Brides say, \u2018On my first anniversary, I can wear part of my wedding-day look.\u2019 How sentimental!\u201d

Today\u2019s brides also have the option of coloring outside the box of classic white and ivory gowns, Rudawsky says. Champagne, blush and (pale) blue stone are among popular muted hues that serve as a unique lining underneath a lace, tulle or organza dress, she explains.

Whether brides choose a traditional ballgown or a dramatic mermaid dress, local boutique owners say it all comes down to the right fit \u2013 for the bride\u2019s personality, body shape and wedding venue. When it comes to the venue, a bride who is getting married in a church may opt for a floor-length gown with a stunning train, while another bride who is to be wed at a winery may choose a comfortable, tea-length dress, Rudawsky says.

As for the most figure-flattering gowns, Fagyal says some designers\u2019 dresses fit better on certain body types, so it\u2019s best to try on different styles and cuts to find your ideal dress. \u201cIt\u2019s based on everybody\u2019s body type and unique fit,\u201d she says. With so many modification options, Shelton says there\u2019s not one style that complements a specific body type.

\u201cWe tell our brides to be open-minded,\u201d she says. \u201cYou may not realize you love a certain style until trying it on and what makes the bride feel the most special.\u201d

Spring Style for the Mother of the Bride

Elegance is in for mother-of-the-bride dresses this spring, says Paulette Friedman, owner of Special Occasions By Paulette in Ladue.

For her daughter\u2019s big day, \u201ca woman wants to look elegant and gorgeous,\u201d Friedman notes, and she says the best way to fulfill that wish is finding the most figure-flattering dress.

Both short and long, silk and lace, and full- and cap-sleeved dresses are trending this season. Black, navy, gold and white are the most popular colors \u2013 often chosen to complement the wedding party, such as the sash of the bride\u2019s gown, Friedman explains.

The venue atmosphere can also help determine the perfect frock, Friedman says \u2013 whether it\u2019s a formal country-club affair that calls for a floor-length silk gown or a destination beach wedding that requires something flowing, made from silk chiffon, whether long or short. She says made-to-order styles from designers including Montage by Mon Cheri, Cameron Blake, Jovani, Terani and Daymor Couture will help women achieve the most important goal this season: keeping it elegant.

Spring\u2019s impending arrival heralds new makeup trends to accompany the season \u2013 so stow the liquid lipsticks, contour kits and harsh winged liners of fall and winter in favor of some or all of the following, soon to be seen both on and off the runway.

Glossy lips: Although liquid lipsticks were all the rage in the past two seasons, lip glosses now should take front and center. Glossy lips give a beautiful sheen to the face, and glosses give a fresher, more youthful appearance to lips.

Bright cheeks: Trade in darker, mauve-toned blushes for bright pops of pink on the cheeks. And don\u2019t fear layering on blush \u2013 bright cheeks are definitely trending this season.

Metallic shades: Similarly, metallic shades are enjoying increased popularity in eye shadows and highlighters alike. Pretty sweeps of metallic silver or gold eye shadow should prove beaucoup stylin\u2019 this spring \u2013 and feel free to add a little metallic glow to your cheekbones, as well, with a highlighter.

Smoked-out eyeliner: Bid adieu to harsh winged eyeliners in favor of smoked-out eyeliners. Achieve an effortless, easy-to-accomplish smoked-out look by using a black eye kohl and smudging it out with your finger or a brush.

Fresh face: The au naturel look has returned in full force \u2013 glad tidings for the woman on the go who often lacks the time to apply a full face of makeup.

Orange-red lip: Bright lip colors have always enjoyed springtime popularity, but tangerine lips are really trending this spring. A fresh face with a pop of pink on the cheeks and a bold lip epitomizes a gorgeous vernal look.

So \u2013 looking forward to exploring spring makeup trends? Certainly, you don\u2019t have to adopt them all, especially those that don\u2019t suit you, but trying new trends as the seasons change can always be fun \u2013 and that\u2019s what it\u2019s all about, right?

Kat\u2019s Closet\u2019s striking blue truck, with its bright graphics and vibrant, multicolored chevron pattern, is hard to miss. And if the idea of a truck-turned-mobile boutique isn\u2019t enough to catch your eye, 22-year-old owner and operator Katharyn \u201cKat\u201d Fish says she gets plenty of double takes when people glance over to see her perched in the driver\u2019s seat, flashing a quick smile and waving as the truck rumbles on to its next pop-up shop destination.

Mobile boutiques began emerging on the scene around 2010, when boutique owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in New York and Los Angeles noted the success of the food truck movement and modified the concept to be a fit for fashion. By 2014, the American Mobile Retail Association reported that in all 50 states, the industry had grown to nearly 500 fashion trucks. Young entrepreneurs like Fish are drawn to the lower barriers to entry, with startup costs at a fraction of what a brick-and-mortar store would entail. For the consumer\u2019s benefit, the adage of \u201cIf you build it, they will come\u201d has taken a customer-centric focus: Build it, and take it to them.

\u201cI\u2019m glad I went this route first,\u201d Fish says of deciding to launch as a mobile boutique. \u201cI didn\u2019t take on that kind of debt, and it was better for me. Honestly, it\u2019s worked out a lot better because my customer base is all over St. Louis, versus one area.\u201d

A native of south St. Louis County, Fish was raised in a \u201cvery entrepreneurial\u201d family. \u201cMy parents have always owned their own businesses, as well as extended family and grandparents,\u201d she says. \u201cI knew it was something I wanted to do, but I had no idea how to do it \u2013 it kind of happened.\u201d

Fish\u2019s light-bulb moment occurred right after high school, as an 18-year-old enrolled in a freshman coding class at a local community college. For the class, Fish had to create several types of websites, and one assignment was an e-commerce site. \u201cThat\u2019s where Kat\u2019s Closet was really born,\u201d she says. \u201cI built the website, and after I did it, I thought, \u2018I think I might actually want to do this.\u2019\u201d Fish dipped into her savings account, took a loan from her parents and began selling the Kat\u2019s Closet collection online with clothes she purchased from retail markets in Dallas and LA. She expanded her business by doing local trunk shows at private homes and businesses, packing her inventory into her car to haul it from place to place.

She began looking into a storefront when she was 19 but was hit with sticker shock at the startup costs. \u201cI started doing some research and stumbled upon a truck out in LA,\u201d Fish recalls. Her research led her to discover the growing fashion-truck scene in St. Louis, and she knew she had found her place. \u201cI have to do this, this is my niche, this is what I can do,\u201d Fish told herself.

She tracked down an old, beat-up truck for sale in Illinois; its seller had bought it to use as a food truck, a plan about which he later changed his mind. \u201cIt was a metal box,\u201d she says, which needed a lot of love. Her business became her supportive family\u2019s newest project, as Fish\u2019s father, Randy, spent 10 months helping her restore the truck. The pair added insulation, put up wooden walls, painted the interior and added baseboards, and then hired Waser Cabinetry to add central pieces to create the effect of stepping into a massive 128-square-foot walk-in closet \u2013 complete with a dressing room \u2013 as shoppers enter the mobile boutique. Exterior design was done by The Graphics Co. in Sunset Hills \u2013 \u201cIt\u2019s bright and colorful; you can\u2019t miss it,\u201d Fish says.

Kat\u2019s Closet hit the streets of St. Louis in August 2015, setting up shop at corporate offices, business parks, restaurant parking lots, hair salons and, most notably, Truck Shop Saturday, a monthly event at Tower Grove Park that reflects the concept of large food-truck events but with a collection of retail trucks. Fish partnered with friend and fellow mobile entrepreneur Emily Ponath of Rack + Clutch to launch the program this past November, with events planned from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the third Saturday of the month year-round.

With such limited space available compared to her brick-and-mortar contemporaries, Fish is very selective with the items she carries in her shop. \u201cI really dive a lot into what\u2019s on trend \u2013 I try to keep the trends of the season at the forefront of the store,\u201d she says. Following fashion bloggers and shopping the latest retail markets in Dallas and LA, Fish\u2019s truck may lack basic T-shirts, but it always will have those statement pieces that will have people asking, \u201cWhere did you get that?\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s more that middle-of-the-road, cute and casual, fun, even flirty, going-out-on-a-Saturday-afternoon items \u2013 that one dress that\u2019s going to stand out in a crowd or that top or blouse that everyone\u2019s going to compliment,\u201d Fish says. In addition to clothing, Kat\u2019s Closet carries jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, handbags, wallets and cheeky coffee cups.

This spring, Fish is noting trends that are retaining their staying power \u2013 lace, stripes, pops of color, and shades of blue and green. The lush emerald green from fall is lightening up a bit, and gold jewelry remains queen.

For the year ahead, Fish plans to expand her reach by setting up additional pop-up shops each month and ramping up her private-party service. She provides the party service for free, with a minimum requirement of 15 guests. \u201cI would like to see that side grow because it\u2019s fun for people, and I enjoy that a lot \u2013 my favorite part is dressing people and making them feel good about themselves,\u201d Fish says.

Kat\u2019s Closet\u2019s schedule is available on the mobile boutique\u2019s website, as well as the Kat\u2019s Closet app, which includes a truck tracker, easy online shopping and a Kat\u2019s Closet loyalty program with special deals, alerts and events. Private parties can be scheduled through the Kat\u2019s Closet website or by contacting Fish directly at kats.closet.net@gmail.com.

\"Grooming
Grooming and Glamour

Flushed cheeks, bubblegum popping, the rising sun \u2026 These seemingly unrelated things all share one attractive trait: They all look pretty in pink. With spring on the horizon, no color suits the season more. Here\u2019s the lowdown on how to use this classic color in bold new ways:

1. Get creative, using Cover Shot Eye Palettes by Smashbox. Imitate a shimmery pale sunrise with the Bold kit or a fiery sunset pink with the addition of the Ablaze kit. Available for $29 at Smashbox (smashbox.com).

2. Bend light to your will with this seemingly scientific product by Guerlain. M\u00e9t\u00e9orites Happy Glow Blush is a pearlescent, multicolored translucent powder that mimics reflective light through blush and highlighter application. Available for $54 at Guerlain (guerlain.com).

3. Bare Melon Extra Lip Tint by Bobbi Brown delivers a peachy pink tint to your lips with a dose of shine. This little tool packs a whole lot of punch with its moisture-infusing formula. Available for $33 at Bobbi Brown Professional Cosmetics (bobbibrowncosmetics.com).

4. Line the top or bottom of your eyes with Tattoo Liner in Trooper by Kat Von D and frame with Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced for a gorgeous finish to this look. Both are available through this dreamy brand collaboration in the Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection. Available for $65 at Sephora (sephora.com).

5. As warmer days approach, you have fewer reasons to sport gloves. So make sure your fingertips are dressed for the part with Dermelect Cosmeceuticals\u2019 \u2018ME\u2019 Peptide-Infused Nail Lacquers. Draw attention with the ultrabright shade Provocative or a subtle dazzle with Impromptu. Available for $14 at Dermelect Cosmeceuticals (dermelect.com).

Makeup is an art form that constantly evolves from season to season and year to year. Even the tools of the trade share names similar to those of a painter, such as brushes and palettes. LN sat down with a modern-day makeup artiste about the latest evolution in the beauty world.

Emily Miller, a St. Louis-based multitalented makeup artist and hair stylist and the owner of Emily Miller Makeup and Hair, has worked with many famous faces and prominent clients. Her biggest customers, though, are everyday St. Louisans. \u201cI have a team of 15 hair and makeup artists,\u201d Miller says. \u201cTogether, we service almost 300 bridal parties a year, hundreds of events, corporate and commercial, and photo shoot clients. Pretty much [covering] any reason you need to get your hair and makeup done.\u201d

For those curious, Miller\u2019s list of big-name clients includes former Vice President Joe Biden, supermodel Karlie Kloss, actor William Shatner, author Meg Cabot, Glee actress Erinn Westbrook, Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and numerous others. She\u2019s also worked with all of the major television networks, as well as MTV.

Miller has made a name for herself in the industry, and now she shares her passion with others. \u201cI started another piece of my business in 2014, a 12-week makeup certification course for anybody interested in becoming a professional makeup artist,\u201d she explains. \u201cIt teaches strictly makeup, and you don\u2019t have to travel to the East or West coasts to learn this. If someone wants to learn the art of bridal or commercial makeup application, there is nothing else like this class in all of Missouri.\u201d

Here, Miller breaks down the new focuses in her field, trend by trend.

Breathable Skin

Celebrity Inspiration: Alicia Keys

The art of lining your face using professional makeup techniques to perfect cheekbones, create a thin nose and thicken lips has loaded down our skin with layers of product piled upon product. \u201cThis past year, makeup was all about cover, cover, cover and highlight, highlight, highlight and contour, contour, contour,\u201d Miller says. \u201cYou see it all over Instagram and social media \u2026 all these videos drawing lines on the face. It got very heavy. So, now, we seek the \u2018no makeup\u2019 makeup look. Conceal only where you need, with as little as you can possibly get by using.\u201d

To master the look, think minimalism. Creating breathable skin requires a little TLC, as it\u2019s more about the preparation than the application. Cleansing the face is a vital first step, followed by a layer of protection. Your arsenal of products, though? You can probably carry them all in one hand. It\u2019s all about feeling strong in your own skin. Fresh-faced and fierce should be your beauty mantra for this look.

\u25d7 Treat your skin each night, and allow it to heal using a night cream or oil. In the morning, cleanse and apply a good moisturizer to keep your skin feeling nurtured all day long.

\u25d7 Skip the primer. \u201cFor this look, the makeup is good without even using primer,\u201d Miller notes.

\u25d7 \u201cDuring the day, switch to a mineral liquid foundation,\u201d she says. Miller recommends MAC\u2019s Mineralize ($38). If you require concealer for blemishes and imperfections, she suggests using MAC\u2019s Pro Longwear Concealer ($22). \u201cJust dot where you need it,\u201d she advises, to avoid too much coverage.

Lip Gloss

Celebrity Inspiration: Blake Lively

Matte reigned supreme for a long time, but 2017 is bringing back the gloss. A dose of dewiness for your pucker delivers a youthful appearance, giving lips dimension. To achieve a shine worthy of the pages of a fashion magazine, bring out your own natural lip color through sheer coverage, or add a tint to up the oomph factor. \u201cYou can get a gloss with a stronger tint, if you feel you need color,\u201d Miller says.

\u25d7 \u201cNARS has a gloss called Gold Digger [price varies] that looks pretty on everybody,\u201d Miller says. \u201cIt actually has some gold flecks in it and can go on any skin tone.\u201d

Black Liner

Celebrity Inspiration: Victoria Beckham

\u201cBlack liner has always been in,\u201d Miller says. \u201cThis trend, though, is more about an imperfect black liner. Everyone can do a version of it. Don\u2019t place it perfectly like a wing. Line the top or bottom [of your eye], but not both. On hooded eyes, I line the bottom. On almond-shaped eyes, I maybe line the top but not the bottom. And no wing! If you don\u2019t want a defined look, smudge it a bit with a brush. It doesn\u2019t have to be perfect.\u201d

\u25d7 \u201cFor those who [worry they] can\u2019t pull off black, use dark brown or neutral lines \u2013 not warm browns,\u201d Miller advises.

\u25d7 \u201cFor this look, I recommend not buying kohl [eyeliner], which can be very runny,\u201d she shares. \u201cUrban Decay\u2019s 24/7 Black Velvet [$20] lasts a long time.\u201d

Although not everyone celebrates an Irish heritage or St. Patrick\u2019s Day, you can still feel as if you\u2019re part of the festivities by wearing a touch of green \u2013 you don\u2019t have to sport a kelly outfit, obnoxious shamrock accessories or viridian beads.

Consider these three subtly spirited ways to acknowledge the holiday coming in just two weeks.

Try green eye shadow. Now, we\u2019re talking not lime green here, but emerald hues with a slight shimmer. Many gorgeous green eye shadows will make your eyes \u201cpop,\u201d and luckily, many eye shadow palettes come with varieties of green, brown and bronze shades \u2013 allowing you to complete the perfect smoky eye. Especially flattering for women with brown eyes, green shadows also beautifully complement those with blue eyes, so fear not.

Line with green eyeliner. If trying the green eye shadow trend makes you grimace, opt for green eyeliner instead. The deep green liner will certainly make your eyes \u201cpop.\u201d You also could line your eyes with black liner and add some green eyeliner to your water line for a fun jade pop. Given the many options available in eyeliner, play around with it till you find what works best for you.

Paint your nails green. Another subtle but fun way to wear green on St. Patrick\u2019s Day involves sporting a mani in that hue. The many different shades of green lend themselves to endless possibilities for an Irish-looking manicure. For a subtler St. Patrick\u2019s Day look, choose a neutral color for your other nails, and pick one nail (usually the ring finger) to be the accent nail \u2013 and paint it green.

Whatever look you choose, have fun with it! Even if you don\u2019t see yourself wearing green eye shadow, eyeliner or nail polish every day of the year, it may be fun to try at least for one day. Maybe you\u2019ll surprise yourself and love it, adding the look as a staple in your everyday beauty repertoire.

Kara Gatto

Viral may be an understatement for Beyonc\u00e9\u2019s recent pregnancy announcement \u2013 and located right under that famous baby bump in her ethereal maternity shoot is a little piece of St. Louis. Locally based lingerie line LIVIARA, which officially launched in November, created the ruffled bottoms seen on the superstar. We recently caught up with LIVIARA CEO Kara Gatto to learn more about this luxury line.

Tell us a bit about LIVIARA.

We create high-end luxury lingerie. Our passion is to revolutionize lingerie through unmatched luxury, innovation and empowerment. Our brand really focuses on empowerment. We believe that you should buy lingerie first and foremost for yourself and the way that it makes you feel. What you wear should empower you. Lingerie is the first thing you put on in the morning and the last thing you take off at night.

What is your career background like, and how did it lead you to lingerie?

My career background is primarily in business. LIVIARA is not my first experience as an entrepreneur, which has helped in many ways. It is, however, my first experience in fashion. There are many aspects that are the same as other business ventures, and then there are some that are definitely unique to the fashion industry, and I love it.

You're based here in the greater St. Louis area, including manufacturing. That's unheard of! Why STL?

I am originally from St. Charles. I moved away after college to San Francisco and then Chicago. We moved back a few years ago. When LIVIARA began two years ago, we were located in the OPO [Old Post Office] Startups incubator on Main Street in St. Charles. We were primarily focused on design. Once the designs were established, we began to look for manufacturing partners in the United States. Unfortunately, because structured lingerie is so difficult to make, very few companies were willing to even attempt to manufacture our pieces. The three companies who did could not produce at the quality that I expected.

With a mission of manufacturing in the United States, I quickly determined that the only way to accomplish it was to open our own production. After traveling often to other cities on business, I knew immediately that I needed our production to be as close to our design studio as possible so that they could work hand in hand to create the best possible product for our customer. I also knew the immense amount of time that I would spend on-site, so I wanted it to be as close to home as possible for me. It was also important to me that it didn\u2019t look like all of the typical apparel-manufacturing factories that I had visited. We essentially created a large, vibrant design/production workshop \u2013 a fun place to work that supports empowerment and passion.

You can find lingerie at so many price points \u2013 what makes luxury lingerie different?

Quality. Luxury equals quality \u2013 or at least it should, in my opinion. One of the reasons that I began LIVIARA was my own enthusiasm for luxury lingerie. I became disheartened that some of the luxury brands that I loved began changing the quality of their product. They began to focus on quantity over quality: utilizing less expensive materials, manufacturing in low-wage countries, yet still charging luxury prices.

At LIVIARA, we do not cut corners. We use real silk, fine laces and gold-plated hardware. All of our pieces are hand-sewn in our vibrant, state-of-the-art workshop, where we support the passions of our employees.

People all over the world were introduced to your line after Beyonc\u00e9 wore it during her recent pregnancy photo shoot. What was your reaction to this viral sensation, and what have you been hearing from the public about it?

We were thrilled; it was really an honor that Beyonc\u00e9 chose to include LIVIARA in her special announcement. It took us completely by surprise. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.

We were incredibly lucky that we control our own production in-house on a daily basis. If we had used an outside manufacturer, we would have had to produce a run with a certain number of each piece. We would have been limited to the supply we had from the last manufactured run and could have easily sold out quickly. With the flexibility of our own production, we can make exactly what is needed on a daily basis.

This not only helped us easily reply to the demand created by Beyonc\u00e9\u2019s post, but this also helps us on a daily basis reply to our customer suggestions and special requests. If a client makes a suggestion that would improve the quality of our pieces, I have the flexibility of making that change immediately.

What does the brand have planned for 2017 \u2013 anything new on the horizon?

Yes, we have started to sell in high-end luxury boutiques. We are actively pursuing additional retail partners and hope to open our own flagship store, if not the end of 2017, possibly in the first quarter of 2018.
