Courtney Chu was trained as an industrial designer and worked as a children’s fashion designer.  She’s obsessed with transforming and saving clothing from landfills through children’s and pet clothing.  Currently, she’s creating memorable, lasting pieces that enhance any adventure through her brand, Courtney Courtney! According to Courtney, every color goes together, or she makes them go together. I love this mantra!
