Entrepreneurial inspiration
I’ve always been inspired by Elle Woods in ‘Legally Blonde.’ What I love about Elle is that she wasn’t the person everyone expected her to be. She wanted it all and she got it! I basically started The Edition Shop to fill a hole in the market that I observed from a consumer standpoint. I was solely shopping out of town or online, and after opening the store I realized there were many other customers like me in Savannah. I wanted to create the ultimate shopping experience, just for them.

Your brand in one sentence
My brand is all about making fashion fun and approachable.

South’s most stylish because…
We took traditional retailing and turned it into something that’s refreshing, fun and uniquely our own. We have a highly curated assortment of brands that are an unexpected grouping but pair well together. We truly believe that we don’t have one type of customer, and our brand mix reflects the many lives our customers lead. 

Finding inspiration
I love bold, bright colors and playful silhouettes. I just want to feel happy in what I’m wearing, and I bring that exact mindset to our buying process.

Secret to success
Building out your team is the most important aspect of a successful business. I know what my strengths are, and I hire people to support me in the areas I’m not so great at. You have to find a team that you can trust and that wants to keep pushing your vision forward. I believe in creating a fun work atmosphere where we can all grow together.
