We had the good fortune of connecting with Debbie Dannheisser and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Debbie , can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
For nearly 20 years my career as an artist was painting art sold in galleries and by commission. In 2018, believing that wearable art created an avenue for women’s self expression, I created an experimental line of art designed clothing. Every piece of clothing – leggings, capris, skirts, tops, accessories – was and still are created from one of many of my original paintings. The response was nearly instantaneous. Our clients expressed feelings of joy, excitement and newly found confidence when they wore our clothing. Most women had never worn anything other than black leggings and found themselves feeling excited, expressed and with a real shift in how they saw and felt about themselves. With that confirmation we took the next step creating Debbie Dannheisser Threads. Our mission is supporting women in expressing and honoring themselves and feeling the joy and love within them in whatever shape or body type is theirs. We believe our clothing is unique and provides women a connection to their expression and empowerment.
