. . .The essential triangle of sustainability is social, economic, environmental. You have to have all three or you are not really sustainable. . .I want to be a positive part of my community – thus growing a business and hiring, training, creating skilled jobs goes with the territory. That fills both social and economic legs of the sustainability triangle.” – Laura Tanzer

Learn the industry hands on as much as you can before going out there, because school won’t teach you the reality of it . . . create your own route, everything will not work for everyone.  Some will be successful and some won’t. I mention this because this is the reality of fashion, and it’s so easy to get discouraged because it’s such a fragile industry. – Herbert of Herbert Victoria

Debbie Talanian is the founder and designer for stella proseyn.   We had a chance to talk at the LA Fashion Council Fashion Week 2015 show.  The clean lines of her design appeal to a contemporary market who appreciate the timeless [non-trendy] look that is always relevant.  As a veteran in this business [former women’s apparel buyer], we would say that this line would retail.  stella proseyn has real staying power.
