KASH Apparel Owner/Creative Director Retail Los Angeles, CA
About Stephanie
I’m a proud graduate of University of Southern California summa cum laude. Early into my prelaw career I defected from my intended path to pioneer a new one. I embarked on a design career, ultimately shaping my entrepreneurial destiny.

I take a unique approach to an often-outdated industry with progressive think tanking, listening to my instincts, exceeding customer expectations and a fierce dedication to quality being the best business plan.

In 2010 I cofounded KASH Apparel. To date I am responsible for 90 employees, designing and manufacturing denim and apparel and juggling a family.

Nurturing the evolution of businesses, with innovation and change, I approach enterprise with a beyond the box type of cognition. I am committed to bringing manufacturing back to California. Committed to evolving with the times for the livelihood and longevity of the fashion industry.

In addition to my business and my boys, I am passionate about my philanthropic contribution to Children’s Hospital; deeply invested in their community, supporting efforts in fundraising, global recognition, research and community outreach.

How many kids? Ages?

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I would be honored to be a part of the Hey Mama community. I deeply believe we support each other by lifting each other up. Women and girls need to embrace, encourage and endorse one another. As a member I would be ready to share and mentor and learn and participate, promote and propel the community to the best of my ability.
