Brittany DeShields discovered her love for fashion design as a student at Delaware State University in 2004,

during which she sewed and designed her first garments as a hobby and a creative outlet.

However, after transferring to Temple University as a Marketing Major with little time to study fashion design, Brittany became a self‐taught designer and seamstress.

She launched her fabulously sexy line in 2008.
