Product Development Director- Midwest and West Coast region
After working as an attorney for several years, Nora decided it was time to explore her creative side and enrolled at the International Academy of Design and Technology. Following graduation, Nora worked as a design assistant for Cintas before being selected as one of six designers to participate in the Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy’s. With the help of this mentoring program, Nora launched her first line in Spring 2010. Her designs have appeared in a number of publications including Women’s Wear Daily, CS Magazine, Strut Magazine and the Chicago Sun-Times. Additionally, she has been featured on ABC-7 news and WGN TV-Adelante, and Fox News.com.
Nora was seeing tremendous growth in her business. However, with a growing family, running a business and being an avid runner (She has even run the Boston Marathon) she realized she was short on time and took a break from her fashion line. But she loved design too much to let it go completely. She saw an opportunity to help others launch their lines while still fueling her passion as VMora. She saw that VMora was a perfect fit and didn’t even apply anywhere else.
