The owner, Doreen Jensen, has an extensive background in clothing design and manufacturing. She graduated in 1990 from Woodbury University in Burbank, CA with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Design and a Minor in Business, right after school she entered into the world of fashion design working for Laundry by Shelli Segal in Los Angeles, CA. She continued designing for several apparel companies and in 1999 relocated to Seattle, WA to design for Nordstrom's private label Caslon. Her dream has always been to start her own clothing manufacturing company, which she did in 2003, when she started her own maternity line called Annette B., named after her daughter. She sold her line to maternity stores across the country.
Expanding into a larger space, which happened to be a retail store front, she opened a small retail store selling only her label. A few years later, she had a second child and decided to close the manufacturing portion of her business and expand the retail by adding in women's apparel and shoes. She out grew the space and in 2009 moved her store to 6th Ave. expanding the mix of clothing and accessories and adding home and furniture.
