The Influence of Mom: A Journey to Fashion and Social Consciousness
View Count: 2,255
How does one gear off a career path of finance to pursue fashion with a cause? For Eric Coly it happened all via the influence of his mother and grandmother. Eric founded Le Dessein, a high fashion line that featured artwork from girls in Africa with portions of the sales going back to fund girl’s education in underprivileged areas of the world.
Stephanie started the show by opening up about some recent heartbreak she has been experiencing. She also explained why Grace is important to her and what it means to be a “Gracist.” Eric talked about listening to the “voice in your head” that says, “Do this.” The table topic box was not in Eric’s favor as it tried to get him to reveal his favorite dirty joke and talk about the wildest party he has been too.
Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest
“I met Eric through a mutual friend; the same friend who introduced me to Claudia and Georgia who have also been guests on the show. (THANKS MARTA!!) I can count on him for his lightheartedness. Eric is someone that you want to see succeed in life because you know his heart is in the right place.” – Stephanie Michele
