Mona Thalheimer

"Forever in style and never out of fashion—day or night—shirt happens!"

After losing her hearing before her first birthday, Mona Thalheimer relied on her senses of sight and touch to inform her world. Since Thalheimer's parents made the clothing labels for some of Los Angeles's leading fashion designers, it was only natural that she was drawn to the visual and tactile beauty of women's clothing.

After graduating from the Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts), Thalheimer received employment offers from Givenchy, Valentino, and Browns, but chose to stay in California to further develop her quintessential American style. Having designed complete collections for many years, Thalheimer has now focused all of her attention on an American classic: the shirt.
