Founder & Chief Hustler
Dubbed an International Style Icon by E! News and a “savvy young entrepreneur” by
Forbes magazine, Carol is an award-winning fashion designer who has built four
businesses across four countries. She is currently the founder of Singapore’s premier
fashion rental destination, Covetella, which provided over 70 dresses and accessories
for the hit movie, “Crazy Rich Asians”.
Starting off making couture gowns, Carol’s work has been featured alongside Vivienne
Westwood at the renowned de Young Museum and her first ready-to-wear line was sold
in over 300 stores. She also built her own garment factory in China and created one of
Hong Kong’s first mixed martial arts brands. In an effort to create more sustainable
ways to look good, Carol launched Covetella in 2015 with the mission to empower all
women by giving them the modern Cinderella experience.
A native Texan, Carol studied psychology and economics at Barnard College, business
at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and fashion design at the Fashion
