Tell us about your business.

I started on the catwalk in New Orleans evolving myself always learning and growing. I retired for motherhood and after the birth of our son I became very ill and left the modeling world. Little did I know this was just the beginning. We started Made 2 Matche in a tiny apartment and now have grown into a thriving company. There were bumps and bruises along the way and still is. I am self taught in sewing I had one private lesson and took it from there. I custom create everything with my customers in mind. Today my husband is right beside me growing our business. We are in over 50 stores, we are at the Trailhead every Saturday selling our wears. We are online in our regular website, and on ETSY. We just opened a sister site Penelopepickletoesboutique.com, and were approved for Amazon, and will be launching soon. I see us growing into many more boutiques. We will be at the Golden Globes Gifting Suite again in 2014, and ABCKIDS as well. We are growing!

What makes your business stand out?

I am so in tune to what I do when creating that I can look at fabric and know exactly what needs to be done. Our customer awareness, and our service we give to our boutiques we service is unbeatable. We have return clientele because I pride myself on construction, and what people really care for. We pride ourselves on the best value for your dollar. Our clothing is everyday wear with a touch of trendy that makes us unique. Our baby gowns are patent pending along with our tushe diaper cover. What makes us strong is our beliefs and my family standing there right with me. My husband helps is creating and marketing of our product line. I had a dream and I am making my dreams come true. Oh by the way Robert can sew to!
