Growing up on a dirt road in the countryside of Pennsylvania had it’s ups and downs. One of the up-sides was that Amy had the time to dream of moving to the big city and becoming a fashion designer. The daughter of industrial designers, she followed artistic dreams and graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Textiles. Amy honed her design skills early in her career at Urban Outfitters and Free People. While there she started one of the first fashion blogs, seamsters, which she always regretted abandoning. After leaving Urban outfitters, she launched her first successful business, Printfresh Studio, a textile design studio for the fashion industry, in 2006 at the age of 25. Since then she and her husband Leo have continued to invest and develop parts of Philadelphia by renovating old warehouses into thriving artist communities (Paper Box Studios & Jasper Studios) and starting two additional businesses in the last few years: Printfresh, a line of bohmian stationery and life-style products and Voloshin a fashion line following Amy’s personal aesthetic. A busy entrepreneur and mother of two Amy finds a little time for herself to paint, do yoga and learn new skills. If you’d like to reach out to me, please send me a note at email@example.com.
