One freezing cold Saturday morning while watching their sons play ice hockey, my friends Gigi Mortimer and Courtney Moss were inspired to start Glamourpuss, a fabulous accessories company. Although their first product was a cozy fur "funnel" to wear during those chilly skating sessions, the label has expanded to include caftans, jewelry and bags.
I recently dropped in on the designing duo to see a typical whirlwind work day. The moms-turned-entrepreneurs were busy fielding phone calls, trying on samples, and sketching ideas but still found time to serve me a quick lunch.
“We create what is missing in our own closets," Gigi, the former design director of Ralph Lauren, told me over the meal. “It’s intuitive, we have a similar drive," her partner Courtney, who has worked at both YSL and Dior, added. "Suddenly we’ll both think ‘white eyelet’ for summer!"
Before leaving the office, I stop to admire a lovely necklace that doubles as a belt, it sure to become my favorite piece this season. You can shop it on the label’s website here, plus the rest of their brightly colored spring collection.
