White-label Collaboration – your brand
Lifestyle boutiques, designers and antique dealers who seek to establish their brand have a unique opportunity for white-label collaboration. Helen will contract to create exclusive soft interiors for sale only through your shop and labeled with your branding.
Consulting, Teaching, Tutoring, or One on One
An engaging communicator, versed in the history of fabrics & furniture design as well as a successful 20+ years upholstery and custom sewing business, Helen loves to share her deep knowledge and experience of business, the nuances of fabric, and the design and manufacture of furniture through the ages. Consultation, instruction, mentoring, and official internships for those wishing to know the inner workings of the business as well as professional materials, methods, and resources for upholstery and the interior design industry. Get in touch for specific one-on-one opportunities.
A Future Vision for Retail Collaborations
Helen’s vision is in alignment with couture fashion, department stores and lifestyle boutiques as we move towards a new Post-Pandemic retail experience. As new retail trends merge community, hospitality, custom artisan, new and vintage design to online environments, she also believes strongly in keeping brick-and-mortar destinations to host this lively variety of experiences, services and merchandise within. She welcomes those who wish to discuss, to please be in touch!
In her own words…
As a former chef/caterer of 15 years, friends with many in the Twin Cities vintage, creative and entrepreneurial community, I am always looking for opportunities to participate, partner, sponsor events and pop-ups. While this has taken many temporary forms over the years, I still seek partners for a permanent collaborative space – a vintage lifestyle inspired retail environment with a custom upholstery/soft furnishings department, an espresso wine bar, healthy omega-rich small plate snacks (big on fish, leafy greens and composed vegetables), a floral aspect (both retail and custom)… and of course English tea and textiles!
