Welcome to Luminata, which means “enlightened.” My mom, a skilled seamstress, taught me to sew when I was very young, which led me to a degree in Apparel design and a career as a designer and fabric developer at Nike, Pendleton, and Columbia Sportswear during a 30-year career. Every step I have taken has been perfect timing for where I am today…. designing and sculpting millinery hats this last 10 years. Bespoke hats (customized) are a key ingredient to my business, and one of my greatest joys is working with clients who know they receive beautiful artistic creations they will truly enjoy.
Education: BS, Apparel, Textiles and Design from the University of Wisconsin - Stout
