If a client needed something for an event, I’d discuss their needs with them and sketch up a design based on their per- sonality and the event.” Terese specialized in designing and cre- ating clothing for professional women and women who traveled and attended Her designs have been worn at the White House, Grammys, and many other prestigious business and social events locally and abroad.
