Why did you decide to incorporate fashion into Foundry?

Vintage clothing and jewelry are my personal weaknesses. Nine times out of 10, I have something vintage on, and when I work the retail floor, people come in and want to buy the dress or jewelry I’m wearing. Regulars started to ask me to style them for weddings and black-tie events!

How did you get the collection going?


I’ve been collecting vintage clothing and jewelry since I was about 20. My collection grew over the years, as I met people around the country and in Europe, and I now curate what they send me. My husband is also a huge consumer of vintage clothing, so we have a balance of men’s and women’s clothing, as well as jewelry.

Who are your favorite designers?

I love Chanel. I think Valentino is unbelievably beautiful from start to finish, from thread and fabric to finished buttons on any collection he’s done. I don’t think you could ever go wrong with Yves Saint Laurent vintage from the ’40s and ’50s, with beautiful Thai silk and really lush, thick cashmere. For jewelry, I have a personal affinity for Pauline Rader and Hattie Carnegie. It’s artwork to wear and enjoy.

What does the future hold for Foundry?

Now that Threads is running, my next offering will be dedicated to entertaining, maybe with tablescapes or [gorgeous] china. This year, I want to help people entertain and live beautifully.
