After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2011, Arizona State University student, Jillian Schimmel, began researching wholesome nutrition and reflecting on what makes life worth living. The celebrations and traditions made in the kitchen, cooking or sharing a meal around the table, kept coming to mind: moments sharing food, served on and prepared with beautiful dishes to create special memories. Jillian graduated with a BFA in Ceramics, cancer free, and in 2013 founded Lafayette Avenue Ceramics. Each piece from her exclusive collection with Tate + Zoey is designed to bring you and your family beautiful dishes to create lasting memories.

Kelly Shatat, the pharmacist-turned-jewelry designer founded Moon and Lola with one mission…to make people happy!
Kelly (Lola), a creative type at heart, turned to designing jewelry to fill the creative void left by her pharmaceutical career. When she began, Kelly sold her jewelry at holiday shows and to local boutiques, but once the brand’s signature acrylic monogram necklace was featured in Lucky Magazine in 2011, she dove in with both feet to pursue her dream. From making jewelry on her couch, then on to her garage, and now a studio with full-time staff, Kelly is the definition of Girl Boss!

Austin, TX native, Kara Whitten is the creative force behind the lifestyle brand, Kailo Chic. A multi-talented creator, Kara designs whimsically bright women’s accessories and writes about all things DIY on her popular blog, a Kailo Chic Life. A chemical engineer by trade, Kara became a designer by accident after a fateful trip to a fabric store. While she intended to find fabric for her wedding dress, Kara left with a fabric pattern that turned into a handbag…and a new career. The rest is history. Kara is inspired by bold colors and patterns, and we hope this exclusive Kailo Chic collection brightens your day and inspires you to change lives with a gift.
