Creativity comes within all forms of design and as a BFA student in college back in the 80's....yes the 80's, I realized that I wanted to collaborate with creative minds throughout my career...whatever that might be. Loving photography, art and travel my hope was to combine all of the above while also living in NYC... a tall order for a 21 year old who would not take no for an answer...some 32 years later with the same passion I look back on my career as Creative Director and Founder of Design Works International, A Lifestyle Design Studio in NYC with a humble heart realizing that my path to collaborate with creative minds turned into my reality and for this I feel blessed!


Nancy's Story...

Feeling blessed to have raised my family in NYC where our business was born some 25+ years ago, I look back at how our studio has grown from a textile design studio into a “Lifestyle Brand Studio” working with some top names in both the Fashion and Home Industries. My passion has always been based in the arts with a connection to curation and style, reflecting my BFA education back in the 1980’s. I feel my fine arts background has helped me look at the world of design with my “eyes wide open” allowing my sensibilities and style to embrace the way consumers are engaging with retail today on trend, color and style.
