Since I’m a sports fan and I could never find great stuff that I wanted to wear to show my team spirit, in 1993 I made a purple suede and Swarovksi crystal belt to wear to a Lakers play-off series game.

It attracted such attention that the owners of the Phoenix Suns asked me to make similar belts to give to their owner’s wives and player’s wives as Christmas gifts. Again, the belts were as much a hit in Phoenix as they were in Los Angeles.

What I identified was a need in the marketplace for high-end, fashion-forward team-wear for women like me, women like us—women who want to show their team spirit, but want to do it in a classy, elegant way.
