cooper & ella stemmed from my desire to find the perfect ‘date blouse.’ As simple a task as it may sound, I never was able to quite find what I was looking for (even after spending nearly two decades working within the fashion industry) —surely I wasn’t the only one searching!

Together, with my business partner, Susan Correa, a seasoned production expert with over 25 years’ experience, the cooper & ella brand was born. Named after my two children (son, Cooper and daughter, Ella), we launched in Spring of 2013 with a focused capsule collection of women’s blouses; each style representing all I had been in search of for all those years - memorable, flattering pieces, truly special and versatile in design, yet affordable in price. In spring 2015, our collection expanded to include dresses.

Today, the ever-growing collection is available here, at and at over 250 department and specialty stores worldwide. I create for the woman who, like me, is doing it all and wants to look good while doing it. From desk to dinner, day to night, lacrosse field to ballet recital; cooper & ella is for today’s modern woman. I’m blessed to love what I’m doing each day and to have the opportunity to share my collection with you.
