When she turned 25, Michelle became a mother of a severely autistic girl, Persephone, and knew that she needed to devote more time with her because she needed constant care. Michelle wanted to start her own business and made sure that it would be something she was completely passionate about. So, she set out to be a fashion designer.
It was a long and bumpy road to get to where she is today. Now that she's 34, and 3 children later, she has an opportunity to make her dreams a reality.
Johanna Elise designs and manufactures elegant hair accessories for babies and girls. All of our accessories are proudly made in the USA of the highest quality fabrics and clips.
The ENK Children's Club trade show in New York is the largest show of its kind, showcasing the top notch children's fashion designers who sell to the best buyers from all over the world. The show is held 4 times a year in New York City.
"We're honored to be invited to attend the show August 3-5, 2014. This is a chance for the Johanna Elise brand to grow. With that growth, we plan to create more jobs right here in the United States. We firmly believe in having our accessories made exclusively in the USA.
Our hair accessories are designed for the trend setting child. She'll look elegant and timeless with Johanna Elise hair accessories. We know that girls love to be active and adventurous. They are designed to last with every tug and twist. We hand sew each one together and heat seal the ends to ensure long lasting durability."
Michelle was looking for a way to raise funds in order to go to this prestigious show, so she launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money for the price of the booth and a custom display. She needs to reach a $4,000 goal by June 7, 2014. You can view her campaign at https://www.kickstarter.com/
