Feel Good Wearing Carte Blanche

One-on-One with Monica Noh: a designer's role in helping women feel great.

Q: How do your designs empower women?

I'm so inspired by the female form: how we're all differently shaped and unique and want to wear clothing that makes us feel beautiful. As designers, there's so much we can do to make sure our customers feel great about their bodies and personal style, and I feel strongly that it's my job to help support that.

For each style, I and my pattern maker really devote countless hours to ensure that each dress is as flattering as possible. They may not work for everyone, but we really strive to be mindful of our customers' varying body types as we design.
