Get to Know

La Toya has had a passion for fashion every since she was a little girl. Her mother, Courtrina, taught her to sew at the tender age of 5. Although she never considered a career in Fashion Design, she was lead to it.

La Toya is a two-time graduate of a Fashion Design Programs. In 1999, La Toya received a B.S. in Fashion Design and Merchandising from N.C. A&T State University. And in 2002, she received her A.A.S in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design in New York City. Her reason for obtaining both degrees was because she felt one was not enough. She wanted to experience living in "The Big City" for once in her life. What better time than at that time? She packed her bags and moved to New York to study the actual Design aspect of Fashion Design. It was an interesting first two weeks in "The City" because it wasn't two weeks before 9/11 took place just blocks away from where classes were being held that morning. Strength was a determinent of why she stayed.

After graduating from Parsons that summer of 2002, La Toya worked as a sewer for a Private Label Handbag Designer in Union Square. La Toya stayed with the company for 5 years. Here handycraft was sold in department stores such as Henri Bendel, Bloomingdals and Fred Segal. La Toya learned handbag constuction, patternmaking and problem solving. After reclocating back to North Carolina, La Toya began her own line of handbags. The Miss Pretty Perfect brand was born in 2007. The Miss Pretty Perfect line of handbags are made of Upholstery Fabric patchwork and leather combinations. Miss Pretty Perfect is a brand that will broaden with time. To come in the future will be a line of women's wear and Girl's clothing.

The ideal Miss Pretty Perfect is a care-free, motivated, go-getter who is not easily led. Miss Pretty Perfect represents the independent women who work, strive,a nd believe in a positive lifestyle an surroundings. Miss Pretty Perfect feels good inside and thinks highly of herself. Attention and admiration keep us breathing. Eventhough we don't live in a perfect world, Miss Pretty Perfect creates on in her mind.
