Entrepreneurial Journeys, Featuring Sarah Evenson
November 8 @ 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM
This event is part of the UNCG Entrepreneurial Journeys monthly speaker series.
Sarah Doggett Evenson is creating effortlessly chic clothing as the founder and creative director of Marie Oliver. Sarah’s goal is to make women feel confident in her figure-flattering, draping designs. In late 2012, after years of curating her personal wardrobe and driven by her father’s frequent reminder to “find something you love and learn how to be successful doing it,” Sarah began working with her now husband, Peter, to develop what was a mere childhood dream into a reality… her middle name, “Marie,” and his middle name, “Oliver.”
Today, while Sarah oversees all creative aspects of the brand, Peter is responsible for developing and implementing Marie Oliver’s growth strategy and managing day-to-day affairs. Spring 2015 marks the launch of Marie Oliver’s debut collection in specialty boutiques across the U.S. and ecommerce at www.marieoliver.com.
Marie Oliver is proudly headquartered in Greensboro, NC, where Sarah and Peter currently reside.
