Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Desi Allinger-Nelson is an entrepreneur as a designer, artist, and seamstress. She is a true classic - think Old Hollywood glamour meets 21st century fashion. A timeless silhouette updated for modern appeal. A bold but polished style that turns heads and speaks to uncommon sophistication. If Desi were a shoe, she would be a sleek, black, paten pump with a bright applied bow at the ankle.
