Monica designs easy comfortable travel friendly clothes for hip kids and their fabulous grown-ups. Her designs are thoughtfully cut in limited numbers from a treasure of deadstock and close-out fabrics she finds in her travels. The designs are always classic and comfortable to flatter a growing toddler and flow from one event to another no matter what age.
Monica grew up in Los Angeles under the glamour of Hollywood so she understands the stylish, casual lifestyle needed for busy families on the go. From the beach to the pool and out to the desert, her clothes are meant to last for more than one season and take you from backyard BBQ’s to fancy Country Clubs & beach fun anywhere on the planet!
Monica learned to sew from her mother who made all her prom dresses and was a huge influence from a very young age and taught her to embrace her Mexican / Irish heritage for a colorful and creative lifestyle. Now it’s Monica’s two daughters that have become her inspiration for design as well as the life she leads traveling and showing them how to have fun wherever they go. Her designs are always inspired by her love of classic shapes & fabulous fabrics.
After 23 years living in New York and making the East Coast her home, she is back in Los Angeles with a smile and ready to share her passion for fashion with you. Whenever possible, Monica likes to provide low cost designs for you with the help of many at home seamstresses while at the same time creating extra income for caretakers and Grandparents forced to be home with loved ones.
Monica makes one guarantee, it will all fit in the overhead compartment!
