I began the creative process for ARRA a year ago. After working in the NY fashion industry for twenty years, I decided to start my own line. I wanted to create a brand that uses environmentally responsible raw materials, manufacture in the US, and design garments that are timeless and quality. My inspirations come from nature's organic forms, and my love and respect for art and design. It has been challenging, rewarding, frustrating, and a definite learning experience in starting a small, woman run business. Each day is a new adventure! I thank you for joining me on this journey!
