She began her first clothing brand at the age of 16 while attending highschool. Exact clothing; created rave wear for club kids.
  Sewing and designing is in her blood. Her great grandmother Francesca was a Sicilian dressmaker. Her Russian grandmother Alice taught Erikka sewing basics evenings after school on her old pedal Singer sewing machine. 

A strong belief in the power of an eye catching outfit found her seeking out any opportunity to advance her Craft throughout her youth.
