When it comes to inspirational women in entrepreneurship, steeped in the power of creativity and one's own unique sense of vision and style -- look no further than the story of Patricia Nash Designs.
Patricia Nash is the namesake founder and CEO of a global brand with a decade in business, all based from her headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee.
She and her daughter Jennifer oversee the company with a dedicated team, managing Patricia Nash Designs' full product line at retailers and venues such as Patricia Nash Retailers: Patricianashdesigns.com, Dillard’s and Dillards.com, Macy’s and Macys.com, Belk and Belk.com, Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com, HSN, QVC, TSC (The Shopping Channel Canada), Von Maur and Vonmaur.com, Marmaxx, Buckle and Buckle.com, Amazon.com, Navy Exchange, USMC Exchange, and Zappos.com.
After a full career of global experience and noted success, followed by 10 years owning her own namesake designer handbag and accessories brand that's grown to a global business, Patricia Nash thought she had it all figured it out... and that nothing could phase her.
Then 2020 came along, and the COVID-19 Pandemic hit.
In the wake of industry chaos and an historic upending of the global retail sector at-large, Patricia and her daughter, CCO Jennifer Evans, have managed to navigate the waters of this year with cool heads, quick-witted responsiveness and an ability to take the decisive actions necessary to position Patricia Nash Designs for the future, not only to survive but also to thrive.
On this edition of Ms. InterPReted, Patricia and Jennifer join Kelly and Mary Beth, in a revealing conversation to share their story and lessons learned as a mother-daughter team building a worldwide brand -- who also take the time to be purposeful about the meaning of their company's product and how to register true connections in the lives of their loyal customers, team members and larger community.
