Welcome to Hazel Moon. My name is Sherrie Olson.
Clothing and fashion are one of my greatest passions. As a young girl growing up, I spent countless hours beside my grandmother, Irene, designing, cutting and sewing outfits I found in fashion magazines that I wanted to wear. She was able to design and produce a pattern that was very similar and a perfect fit for me. I always loved what she came up with and to her credit, I was voted the best dressed girl in the school yearbook.
I attended college with a scholarship in Theatre Arts. Part of the curriculum was a course in costume design. There, I was able to use some of the skills my grandmother taught me while working beside her as she designed.
After college, I ended up going into the financial industry for 20 years and eventually founded a mortgage company that I owned from 1990 to 2004, at which time I was able to sell the company. It was a wonderful experience, but I missed the creative piece of designing.
My favorite thing to do after getting home from work, was to put on loungewear before starting dinner for my family. With that in mind, I started out creating a loungewear line.
