ASIANCE: Do you sew or just do design?
Catherine: I trained in sewing for 3 years in my design program and still never got the hang of it. I sewed a skirt for myself once to attend the ballet in San Francisco. It fell apart at the seams while I was on my way home! I'd feel pretty badly about subjecting my consumers to such poor workmanship, therefore I do what I'm good at, design, then leave the rest to professionals. I have a really good working relationship with my contractors, I work with them every step of the way, and everything is done locally so I know for sure that every part of the Lovelina Collection creation process is under fair labor conditions.
