Megan: "I was part of Calvin Klein’s celebrity services team and then I started a business styling and making made-to-measure clothing for my personal clientele. During this time, I also had a line of accessories. When my husband got transferred to San Francisco in 2005, I met Anyi Lu, a local shoe designer and she hired me to be her Style Director. This is where Cristina and I met."
Cristina: "I come from a shoe-making family, so I always knew I wanted to launch my own line. I studied at Ars Sutoria in Milan to learn technical design and then I studied Fashion Merchandising at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. My first design job was with Anyi Lu and now I'm with Freda."
