Fashion, Beauty & Style
Dawn Baker is SO excited to be an expert on chicmommagazine.com! She has earned this status with her more than 10 years experience in fashion merchandising and production as well as by styling television personalities. Dawn opened her boutique, happy LA in 2007 and oversees all aspects of the boutique’s operations.
Prior to launching happy LA,
Dawn holds a degree in textiles and clothing and began her fashion career in NYC with companies like CP Shades, JCREW and then merchandising for the ISAAC Isaac Mizrahi women’s wear line where she helped develop the collection from conception to the end of the line.
Dawn also worked with renowned designers Calvin Klein and Donna Karan where she made her mark as an intricate part of each designer’s women’s wear division, acting as liaison between the design, production and sales teams. She created and planned the fabric and garment buys for each season and produced the market line lists for both Calvin Klein’s and Donna Karan’s sales teams.
In 2000, Dawn ventured into the global fashion world as the merchandise liaison for Nicole Miller in Japan, while with Sankyo Seiko Co. Ltd in this role. Dawn worked daily with Nicole Miller to create seasonal concepts, themems, trends and general direction for all licneses. She traveled seasonally from New York to Japan to approve all licensed and sub-licensed products.
Back in her native California, Dawn is a chic wife to her hubby, David, and a VERY chic mom to her two children.
We’re so happy to have Dawn on board!
