  • Q:
    What is your style mantra?

    High style should be low stress. —Kate

  • Q:
    Describe the essentials in your wardrobe.

    I stick with tried-and-true basics that I love, plus signature accessories. I wear a charm necklace, which I’m always adding to, and my favorite purse is a bag with a picture of my kids on it. —Darcy

  • Q:
    What does American Made mean to you?

    I love the whole entrepreneurial spirit of American Made—how all of these makers from around the country have come up with great ideas and produced them right here in America, often with very little funding. I also like getting to know the nominees and learning more about how they got their businesses off the ground. It's inspiring. —Melissa O.

  • Q:
    What are you looking for in a finalist?

    I’m looking for someone who has found the white space—the item that answers a need. —Melissa G.
