Style Wire is a site dedicated to sharing the fashion, food and lifestyle that captivates the Boston-based founder, Elissa. It was a joy to catch up with her and an honor to be called one of her Wired Women!

SW: Has fashion been in your genes from the get go? How did you know designing was in your future?
CC: I think so, yes! As a toddler, I would get so much satisfaction out of putting together my own wacky outfits, and as soon as I could draw, I was designing pouffy little princess gowns. When I made my own prom dress when I was 16, that was a big moment for me. I thought then that maybe this could be a career that was going to make me happy in life.
SW: What's your favorite piece you've ever created and why?
CC: My Cleo dress from my first season is still one of my favorites. Everyone loves how easy it is to wear, while still making a big impact with its design details. I love watching people try that style on and loving how they look in it!
