MEET JULIE & STEPH
"There’s a little diva in everyone, right?"
That’s right. So, get your sass on, says Vanilla Print founder Julie Ley, named a Top Ten Designer to Watch by Stationery Trends Magazine along with Jonathan Adler and Vera Wang. Ley launched Modern Posh to capture on paper the style and vision of the nation’s top fashion designers, including Cynthia Steffe, Badgley Mischka, Monique Lhuillier, Christian Siriano and Betsey Johnson. After all, you express yourself in what you wear; why shouldn’t you do the same with your correspondence, your true calling card?
As a graduate of one of the leading design schools in the country, North Carolina State University College of Design, Julie’s work has been featured in magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Better Homes and Gardens, as well as on countless blogs and design books. She has served on the board of Directors of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), and currently volunteers as Creative Director for Women Who Give a Hoot, a organization that gives back to local communities and has donated over $200,000 since it’s inception in March 2016. She currently resides in the Raleigh-Durham area with her beautiful family.
Stephanie O’Rourke is the VP of Marketing at Modern Posh. She has previously worked at Cisco Systems and owned her own personal training and coaching business. Stephanie spent her early years in Western New York and attended Duquesne University to complete her undergraduate and graduate degrees. Stephanie resides in the Raleigh-Durham area with her husband, Chris and two daughters, Gracie and Gabby. Working with Modern Posh has been a truly inspiring and positive experience for Stephanie as they develop their new product lines.
Julie and Steph are close friends and enjoy giving back together, inspiring this line.
