"My favorite part of working and being in business with my mom, is the lack of stress, and miss-understandings. I couldn't have picked a better partner. We are business partners who love and trust one another, and who are, in many cases, best friends. I don't know what I would do without my mom. We are a perfect team. I handle the design (couture dressmaking) and my mom handles the management of marketing, bookkeeping, and travels. Regardless, "we love saying we're a mother-daughter team.” Zhanna Nudelman
