After graduating from Drexel University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Fashion Design, Elisha knew she wanted to start her own fashion company.

Elisha says, “After purchasing and working with the delicate feathers, Swarovski crystals, and Russian veiling I fell head over heels in love. I knew I found my niche.”
