CIAO CLAIRE

CIAO CLAIRE

When I first started looking for internships, never once did I think that I would end up working in the fashion industry. However, it has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Working for Madalyn Joy Designs has opened my eyes to so many exciting new things and I am so sad that it is all coming to an end. If it was possible for me to stay with this amazing company full time I would jump at the opportunity.

AYLA SAYS AU REVOIR

AYLA SAYS AU REVOIR

Hey everyone its Ayla, Madalynโ€™s sewing intern for this past spring semester. I am wrapping up my time here as I wrap up my senior year at Mount Mary University. I joked that there was always lace or appliques to be trimmed, but even in those small things I found lots of joy and inspiration and could not have asked for a better experience interning for Madalyn Joy Designs. Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity!

DREAM TEAM

DREAM TEAM

Nicole, Moriah, and I have been working together for exactly 2 years this month so I wanted to put together a blog post to share our adventures together the past couple of years. I like working with Nicole and Moriah so much because it truly doesn't feel like work! We all trust each other and go into each shoot with a general idea and concept but always leave room to get creative during the shoots whether it be Nicole trying a new pose or Moriah trying a new lense.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Happy Valentine's Day from Madalyn Joy Designs! We absolutely love Valentine's Day here at Madalyn Joy Designs because it is the perfect excuse to celebrate all things lingerie! The holiday of love tends to get a bad rap because of its cheesy cards and heart shaped boxes of chocolates, but Madalyn Joy Designs is here to put the class and sass back into Valentine's Day with luxe lingerie.

NEW YEAR, NEW BUSINESS GOALS

NEW YEAR, NEW BUSINESS GOALS

 I am looking forward to focusing on my niche of robes in 2018. Through months of research, I have come to realize that robes, specifically for brides, is what I truly love to do and what I am naturally best at. Do you know those Weight Watchers commercials where Oprah declares her love for bread? Well that is me with robes! I love robes. I really love robes! I want to be known as the robe lady! When someone is in need of a bespoke robe, I want to be the first person people think of!
