You’re only as strong as your team. No woman is an island, and when you surround yourself with people you trust, and give them room to breathe, they flourish. My team has become my backbone since becoming a mom. I know I can count on them to support me and help lighten my load while keeping my objectives at the center of their work, allowing me to personally do my very best work for my clients. Each designer brings their special strengths to Upton Grey, and I fully recognize and appreciate their gifts. Case in point is one of my long time designers, Jill. So many times I’ve shown her my sketches, given her a floral recipe and brief mechanics rundown, and then walked away, knowing my vision was in safe hands while I focused on other designs. This beautiful pram installation from a few weeks back is no exception. Jill puts the love, care, and attention to detail that I give my own work, and that level of commitment isn’t always easy to find with freelancers. I thank my lucky stars every day that she and the rest of my wonderful team have my back. Can’t wait for this weekend’s wedding where we get to do it all over again! Stay tuned!
