About the Designer
Growing up outside of Chicago, Maggie loved fashion from the beginning though that wasn’t her first career. Before becoming a lingerie entrepreneur, Maggie earned a Master’s degree in education and spent nearly a decade working at nonprofits and teaching in the Chicago Public Schools-a career which she found both challenging and rewarding.
But a summer at London College of Fashion changed that. The creative environment of the school rekindled Maggie’s love of design and desire to find a way to merge the the worlds of fashion and philanthropy. Now as the owner of The Giving Bride, Maggie is able to create beautiful bridal lingerie while giving a portion of each purchase price back to women’s charities combining her love of fashion and philanthropy.
