ABOUT LARA MILLER
Owner and founder of Frances Grey, Spring 2015
I am a Victoria native with two beautiful children, have my Bachelor's Degree in Education and co-created and owned an award winning development company for 10 years. I am an artist. I love to paint abstract paintings that showcase my passion for the deeper hidden parts of ourselves. I also create beautiful dreamcatchers from vintage doilies, combined with many found wonderful treasures.
I am thrilled to be fulfilling a life-long dream and passion for creating a fabulous shopping experience for all women and help them feel strong, sexy and confident. Since I can remember, I have dreamed of designing and dressing women. My girls always call me when they want to go shopping because they trust and know I will find them that amazing 'piece' that is just so right for them.
My intention is to bring in design labels from around the world that allow women to play, explore and discover their own unique voice through what they wear. The clothing a woman chooses to wear is such a deeply personal and unique reflection-expression of who and how she chooses to be in the world. The best part is we get to redefine ourselves each and everyday.
