Boards & Committees
Director
2009 - 2012

MyShape started around a kitchen table in September 2004. Soon it had to add more chairs around the table and Louise's driveway couldn't fit anymore cars. The company is still around one table but it's a big conference table in an office.The idea germinated in response to a problem shared by women of all ages and sizes: finding clothes that both fit well and flatter body shapes. The company deserves great clothing in wonderful, exquisite textiles, and designs that celebrate its body shapes.The idea has transformed into MyShape.com, an online retail store.
