industry after graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Always passionate about interiors and design, Dana relocated to New York to further her career and landed at James Perse where she assisted in opening their Madison Avenue Flagship and an extension of the Soho location. In this role she was inspired by the simple yet influential retail designs and the brand’s identity of warm west-coast indoor/outdoor living architecture and interiors. Now back in California, Dana recently completed her second degree in Interior Design at FIDM. She values a space that tells a story and connects the individual to its design and the lifestyle it conveys. She has confidently discovered her aesthetic through fashion, travel (Melides, Portugal and Positano, Italy were favorites), and experiences living on both West and East Coast.
