Steven Birnbaum was born and
raised in Long Island, NY and was exposed to the arts at a very
early age. Every possible opportunity, Steven would attend the theatre,
concerts and dance performances. Not knowing exactly where his new
passions would lead him, Steven studied both dance and music. Of
course, it would be the theatre that would entrance him in his teens
and early twenties.
With this as his main focus, Steven earned his degree in costume
design from the New York State University at New Paltz.
Robert Bullock grew up on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and always
showed a strong interest in fashion.
At a very young age Robert taught himself the skills of draping,
pattern making and sewing. Robert moved to Atlanta when he turned
17, where he immediately started designing accessories and women's
ready-to-wear for local specialty boutiques. After
five years, Robert moved to New Orleans to work for a doll manufacturing
the Head Designer. This opportunity gave him the knowledge of manufacturing
on a much larger scale as well as the experience of overseeing production.
At age 23, Robert was commissioned to build a factory from the
ground up to produce children's clothing. This proved to be highly
fulfilling personally, as well as financially.
