Collaborating with Tessa Virtue September 17 2015
Celebrating Empowered, Inspiring Women Through Design
One of our favorite women, Tessa Virtue, teamed up with us to help women embrace their brilliance
When our leader, Rachel Mielke, founded Hillberg & Berk in 2007 she had one goal in mind: to empower women through design. Since then, Hillberg & Berk has not only helped women worldwide capture their sparkle, but has also supported strong, inspiring women through collaboration.
This year, we are thrilled to partner with Olympic and World Ice Dance Champion, Tessa Virtue.
"[Hillberg & Berk] chose to collaborate with Tessa because she is really one of those women who has harnessed her own destiny and really taken control of her own life. Even though she is a very young woman, she has accomplished so many amazing things," says Rachel Mielke.
Tessa embodies the kind of woman that Hillberg & Berk celebrates, not only because she is ambitious, talented, and accomplished, but more importantly because she is all of those things while still being warm, vibrant, and genuine.
"She is very ambitious, but when you meet Tessa, you instantly fall in love with her because she is not only strikingly beautiful on the outside, but she is even more beautiful on the inside. It’s one thing to have achieved great things, but it’s another thing to be somebody who has an attractive personality. Tessa is one of those people that, when you are around her, she makes you feel better about yourself - and that’s a really special gift."
Just as Tessa expresses herself through movement on the ice, the Tessa Virtue by Hillberg & Berk Collection expresses the determined spirit of Tessa as a person.
We can't wait to share the entire collection with you on October 14!
"Through Education, Inspiration and Opportunity, we are women empowering women—one sparkle at a time."
