Dana holds a BA in Fashion Design from HAW Hamburg, Germany. She started illustrating and exploring to work with different materials at a very young age.
Before moving from Germany to NYC in 2013 she was working as a Freelance Stylist, Costume and Fashion Designer as well as PR Assistant for fashion brands like Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Karl Lagerfeld and Woolrich.
Eventually she moved with her family from NYC to California and launched her own business Petit Mioche based out of Ojai, focussing on timeless, ethical and earth-friendly women's and children's garments. Petit Mioche's garments are handmade, hand-dyed and hand-printed with plant matter without the use of chemicals.
This year Petit Mioche won a Babyccino Award for Best Ethical Store, and presented its SS19 collection at the Maternity and Children's Trade Show "Playtime NY" where several garments were chosen as key pieces for the season.
Paige is a self taught seamstress and business owner. Growing up she was always interested in the creative arts, which led her to creating her own clothing and home goods in College.
Moving from Minnesota to California in 2013 she launched her own company Bolt West based in Ventura, creating handbags and travel accessories using unique textiles from her travels and incorporating genuine leather.
