SOME OF OUR BRAND STORIES (excerpts only)
Miss Kinsman Swimwear excerpt only
Inspired by her whole-hearted love for fashion, Joanna went from cubicle nation to full-time fashion designer. But what would she design? A pool party of all places sealed Joanna’s fashion fate. “I layered two bikinis on top of each other and got a lot of compliments on how cool it looked.” She was hooked, set her intentions and took the daring plunge into swimwear.
The genesis of her new bikini line began with a pencil sketch and eventually it morphed into manufacturer samples. The next step was deciding how to produce this swimwear line on a shoestring budget. Going against mass manufacturing rules, Joanna decided to use a local seamstress to create her designs and the Miss Kinsman Swim Line began to evolve rapidly. Getting to see the product brought to life, but staying true to her aesthetic, was key in this evolution. “I have so much passion and love for my business, my brand, and my designs that I truly can’t imagine anyone else feeling this strongly about a swimwear line.”
McMonigle Design House excerpt only
Once the kids were off to school, Wendy continued her professional path at a blossoming import company that provided promotional product services to high-end brands such as Estee Lauder and Nordstrom’s. Having always loved fashion and with fond memories from years in the beauty industry, a year later Wendy’s efforts resulted in $1 million in sales.
Wendy then decided to take her knack for design and product development to start a company that was later absorbed by a large corporation. She loved the thrill of design, developing and growing a business.
The economic crash of 2010 created even more surprise and opportunity. When Wendy’s husband lost his job they acted on a dream to start a business together. With his marketing expertise and her creative genius, WMDH was born.
Create more opportunity and beauty in the world while honoring the multi-tasking (and loving!) ways of women around the globe.
WMDH does this by delivering surprisingly functional and high fashion bags that expand to absorb the needs of today’s superwoman, regardless of her age. Their product is fun to experience and wear. (wendy: we can talk more about your exact purpose/mission)
These days, Wendy and her family “team” of six create life and surprise by giving back to the Marfans organization and even by purchasing a surprise cup of joe for the person behind them in line at Starbucks. Paying it forward is the McMonigle style and it shows in the way they’ve designed their life, this company and their products.
Whitneyfusion Boutique Event Planing Company excerpt only
A wise person once said, "Success always comes when preparation meets opportunity." However, in the case of Whitney Bauter Stoner, an equally wise business woman, mother and owner of Whitneyfusion events, let's take that famous quote a step further to say,"combining preparation with purpose and passion is what creates the incredible synergy of event planning success." That is the essence of Whitneyfusion.
How it all began
To understand the unique experience of working with an event planner like Whitney, we need to start at the beginning…
Organizing events came naturally to her, even as a young child. She warmly recounts memories of helping her mother host fabulous dinners and even remembers encouraging her mom to add more “décor” to tablescapes. She lovingly admits, “I owe all my creative thought processes to her.” Years later during college at Santa Clara University, Whitney had her first taste of “preparation meeting opportunity.” At just 23, she was given the challenge to run a start up business by herself. When asked if she could do it, she responded, “I had no other choice but to succeed. That is my nature.” That is Whitney.
