Name: Rebecca Minkoff
Lives In: Dumbo
Age of Kids: 5 and 1 ½
About Me: I was born in San Diego, CA and grew up in Florida. I developed an affinity for design in high school and moved to New York City to pursue my dream of becoming a fashion designer at 18 to do an internship with Craig Taylor. At night, I also took design classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology, but only for three semesters. I realized I knew what to do and while I might not be the best, I knew how to promote myself. You can’t be shy in this industry and I’ve always favored a bold course of action.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: Dedicated, unique, loyal, innovative and passionate.
Interested In: Every Mother Counts, Honest Company, Finca
Mama Likes: Interior design, food, wine, family, the beach
Mama Inspiration: you! Zanna Roberts, Eva Chen, Taylor Tomassi, Jane Birkin, Kate Moss
Words you live by/quotes you love: Stay true to yourself and follow your passion. Even if your dream seems unattainable, you can achieve it if you stay focused, driven and diligent.
Best advice you’ve ever been given: When I was pregnant with Luca my mom told me to always know when to stop and when to keep going in terms of balancing the growth of my business and family. It’s the best advice that keeps me focused on the important things in life and sane as a working mom. I have an incredibly busy schedule, with new opportunities popping up all the time. I am so grateful for all of it, but I make thoughtful choices and commitments to ensure that I am not separated from my family for too long. It helps to have such a creative and supportive husband too!
What are three things people would be surprised to know about you? Great sense of humor, I am not serious! I love to sunbathe. I love to ride my bike (especially all over Paris).
