After four years of success as co-founder and design mastermind of a clothing line she started with her college roommate, Eileen decided to drop the “co” and take the leap into full-on individual business ownership. Lucky for all of us, she’s pretty darn good at leaping. Launching her own line of vintage-inspired garb was daunting at first, but Eileen’s never been one to shy away from a challenge. Now she’s in full swing, handling every aspect of the dressmaking process from inspiration to sketches to drafting patterns, and churning out scores of impeccable apparel like a seasoned champ.
