Amber Farr | Flynn Skye
Amber Farr is the founder and designer of Flynn Skye, a clothing company that "is made for the girl who is not afraid to take risks and lives with no limits. The girl who wakes up in the morning and doesn’t think twice about that dress she’s throwing on to grab coffee or what she’ll be wearing to lead that business meeting later. Simply put Flynn Skye is made by powerful women for powerful women."
Katie Nehra | Actress, Writer & Designer
Katie Nehra is what LFC (and pretty much anyone else) would describe as a triple threat - between acting, writing, and designing, it seems as though Nehra does it all. You can catch her playing the right hand woman to another equally headstrong and talented woman in a pseudo-love story about a hitman, but you can also catch her co-writing scripts, and when she's not doing that, she's building a fashion empire. Read below to learn a little more about this entrefemmeur who's taking the art world by storm.
Sofia Salazar | Textile Designer
Hi LFC! I'm Sofia and I'm a textile designer, I'm Argentinian, I live in the UK, and I'm now my own boss. Both of my parents are artists and they've always worked on their own. I grew up surrounded by people that 'made things' for a living. Whether it was clothing, accessories, tapestries or even houses, they were building, they were creating - and that really had an impact on my whole perception of life and family and career.
Beth Spencer | Web Designer & Beth Spencer Design
Do some recreational doodling, take a walk to think about ideas for new work, meet a friend for lunch and ask what they think of your work and ideas. Post everything on social media and don't take feedback personal. You have to create a lot of bad material before you get to the good stuff, but that's a part of the ride.
Olivia Mew | President of the Stay Home Club
My name is Olivia and I’m literally the president of the Stay Home Club. I always have trouble describing the company succinctly, but our tagline is “a lifestyle brand for people with no life” – if that helps clarify things at all!
Breonna Rodriguez | Lead Digital Designer at Sesame Street
I’ve been making thing since I was four years old — I can only guess there are a handful of days where I wasn’t drawing or writing or constructing something to satisfy my weird-ass creative urges. Being both a content creator and a digital designer just fits my natural impulses. I’m super lucky.
Puno Dostres | ilovecreatives + PeopleMap
I’ve always loved the internet. Back in 2004, I started teaching myself HTML/CSS and Photoshop so I could make websites. I ended up getting a job in an advertising agency because the Creative Director saw a website I built. From there, I just kept making things on the internet. I love the internet. It’s endless what you can do with it.
Merin Guthrie | Kit
Merin Guthrie is the Founder and CEO of Kit, an innovative Made in America clothing start-up changing the way clothes are made. Their e-commerce platform provides an antidote to standard sizing and throwaway fashion by offering custom fit clothing based on each individual customer's height, weight, build and muscle mass.
Kylie Nakao | Tarin Thomas
My name is Kylie Nakao and I’m the founder, owner, and designer of Tarin Thomas, a jewelry brand based and handmade in New York City. I was previously a buyer, but soon started creating my own pieces and in 2013, Tarin Thomas was born! Our jewelry really explores the contrast between masculine and feminine, delicate and bold, modern and traditional, which is what I think makes it so unique.
