“The coats are different because they are high-performance outerwear without looking like it. They’re great pieces that will work in any city and in all kinds of weather.”
A west coast native, Hillary moved to the east coast to study at Rhode Island School of Design. While there, she apprenticed with Vera Wang in New York City. After graduating from RISD she worked for Ralph Lauren in New York. More recently she has worked in Portland for adidas where she designed men’s and women’s sportswear, developed color + trend direction and concept design.
In 2008, she debuted her line of five classic but innovative outerwear styles conceived with everywoman in mind. Her coats are designed for wearers of all ages, from 25 to 95. The styles are timeless, elegant and feminine.
In addition, she has remained dry and warm during Portland’s persistently wet + cold seasons year after year.
