About Us

I began my costume design career by designing and making costumes for TV and movies in Hollywood in the early 90's. After my daughter Emily was born, I realized how much I enjoyed designing for children and moved my base of operation from Hollywood to Houston, Texas.

Some of the original costumes - Emily is second from right.

In 1996 I toyed with the idea of opening a virtual costume company starting with four costumes: Snow White, Madeline, Cinderella and Annie. I named the business MissEm.com, after my daughter Emily's nickname.  


In the summer of 2001, Emily and I took a vacation to Williamsburg, VA. Of course, I created a colonial day dress for her to wear while we visited historic sites! When we returned, I added a replica of the design to the website, which lead to the creation of an expanded line of historical costumes. I then turned my focus to Theatrical and Historic costumes.

I just love this business. I have an outlet for my creative drive, which lead me to be a costume designer in the first place, and control of what my designs will be. I also get to work with great friends and tons of creative clients. Inspiration comes from all around. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by great craftsmen, friends, and clients who always inspire me with new ideas. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the pictures that my clients send me of their lovely children in my designs. Thanks to all of you for your support and inspiration.
