Some of you may know, and some may not - but I am about 34 weeks pregnant. We are expecting our second child and it's a boy. It's been a long journey for me this year, getting into Nordstrom, staying in Nordstrom, and branching out into the Japan market, all while being pregnant. The difficulties for me, was how to balance it all and how to stay comfortable and fashionable while being preggo.
I've always wanted to do a Maternity collection of clothing, ever since the pregnancy with my daughter, because it was so tough to find cute, FLATTERING, fashionable maternity clothing. I ended up making a few pairs of maternity jeans for myself and bought regular tops to keep me looking decent. But now with my second, I have given up on fashion. I dont feel attractive and I realized, its because of my clothing.
Throughout all of this I made a contact to sell maternity jeans to an online retailer called KeeKoo, and am about to deliver some styles in late August. It will be the first release of a full maternity line of Allison Izu jeans, and I am really excited. This opportunity has made me focus more on the maternity aspect and look into possibly designing tops too. Its a new chapter in my life, which I am excited to begin (just as much as I am looking forward to being a mom of 2)!!
