Corporate Retreat

Every January, for the past four years, Julie and I have spent four days together at Miraval, a spa in the Arizona Desert.

The view from our room

What started as precious time for the two of us to reconnect as friends has now, with the creation of our business, evolved into our corporate retreat.

We use our time here to reflect on our strategy, review design ideas and brainstorm for the future.

We meditate,

With our favorite yoga and meditation instructor, Mary Grace

One of our favorite classes is cardio drumming. You bang on a ball with drumsticks, and dance around the room. We are completely uncoordinated and look pretty ridiculous, but we love it!

hike, eat healthy,

Our breakfast – the green, essential juice, made from kale, spinach, apples and other good stuff.

meet new people and enjoy the beauty of the Sonoran desert.

Oh, we also enjoy a little wine (totally organic, of course) every evening.

There could not be a better place in the world to take the time to reflect on what you are grateful for in your life, business and the world around you. We leave refreshed and renewed, bursting with ideas for how to continue our pursuit of our dream to create beautiful clothing for the smart, accomplished woman that resides in all of us.

Looking forward to sharing another year of fashion with all of you! Thanks for reading.
