From the time she was a little girl, Carol Anderson loved fashion. This took her from Omaha to Los Angeles, where she was able to pursue her dream of being a designer. After working for a design firm, Carol teamed up with a good friend, Jan Janura, who believed in her designs and took them to Nordstrom, where she became a beloved brand. She quickly garnered a loyal following in other department stores and boutiques across America. As their business grew, their love did as well, and they became husband and wife.
