Social media has played an integral part in communicating and connecting with Renée’s “wardrobe warriors™,” a term she coined for her loyal customers and fans. She leverages social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter, to share slices of her professional and personal life.
Renée developed a philosophy that she applies to her career and everyday life: No matter what her size or shape is, every woman has wonderful and unique qualities that her clothes and accessories should help her express. Her style mantra “Style is not about size, it’s about attitude”™, is one that she shares with every woman she meets. The more women feel free to accept themselves as they are, the more Renée enjoys her career as a fashion designer.
“My career has taken me to every corner of the world, affording me the opportunity to be with beautiful women from all different walks of life,” Renée says. “Something we all have in common is that we have the little bit of ‘attitude’ that helps us stand out from the rest.”
From childhood, Renée developed a passion and a love for people and fashion. In college, she majored in theology but soon realized her career calling was elsewhere and instead, Renée came to New York City to pursue her strong interest in fashion. Renée became a fit model and soon found her niche in the dresses and sportswear apparel categories. During her time as a fit model, she became aware that fashion catered to only a portion of women. In addition, she discovered her innate ability to communicate to designers and patternmakers how clothes fit and give suggestions on how clothing could be better made to fit all women. These realizations inspired her to create her own clothing lines, whose size range spans XXS – 3X, and include petite and tall lengths in many styles, empowering all woman to look and feel as beautiful as they are. In addition to her style mantra “Style is not about size, it’s about attitude”™, Renée is also known for her trademark “No More Wiggle, No More Jiggle.™” Her highly coveted Women with Control® leggings are loved by all women.
Since she first appeared on QVC, Renée and her company, Two Chicks in the Backroom Inc. were the recipients of the 2011 Q Star Award for QVC Product Concept Apparel. In addition, they have been nominated for numerous awards including QVC’s Q Star 2012 Award for QVC Rising Star and the 2010 Product Concept Apparel Award. Renée also is a loyal supporter of the Central Park Conservancy as well as The Public Theater.
