Creative Director Taleah Smith has worked in the garment design industry for the last ten years. Her experience ranges from concept design, pattern drafting, draping, and sample making to manufacturing, sales, marketing, and graphic and web design. She has designed for men, women, and children, ranging from casual clothing to wedding gowns to swimwear and lingerie.
Maintaining a sustainable lifestyle has always been important to her, and she incorporates eco-friendly practices into her business model wherever she can. This has included using solar power for manufacturing, sourcing eco-friendly materials, and reducing the carbon footprint of her company.
All of Taleah's designs boast the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profits: in addition to running a successful business, Taleah strives to promote sustainability and fair labor practices through her work. She lives in Waimea, Hawaii with her two children, Sage and Lilia, for whom the company is named.
