“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”
Nanette Lepore (born in 1964 in Youngstown, Ohio) is a well known fashion designer based in New York City. New York magazine has said that “her gypsy-influenced designs are feminine and youthful. The looks are full of bold colors and bright prints, with ruffles and lace that manage to look good-time-girly but not overly frilly.”
Nanette Lepore gained celebrity in the fashion world after she returned to California, opening a boutique store in Los Angeles and selling her outfits to clients in Europe and Asia. She also began to have her items featured in the famous American store chain, Neiman Marcus. She also gained renown for her flair on the runway and began to attract stars like Aida Turturro, Illeana Douglas, Lorraine Bracco, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, and America Ferrera.
She also has her own fragrance named Nanette.
In spring 2007, Nanette Lepore launched a collection of shoes with Keds. Mischa Barton was the face of the line.
Today, Nanette Lepore is sold across America, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Macy’s. She has boutiques in Chicago, Boston on Newbury Street, New York in Soho and Madison Avenue, Los Angeles on Robertson Boulevard, one in Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas, in Tokyo, one in Friendship Heights in Washington D.C., and a storefront in London just off the famed Portobello Road. She has additional boutiques in Hong Kong and Shanghai and Bal Harbour
