After studying fashion at FIDM, Orchid opened the LaborFruit store in burgeoning Echo Park in 2002. She was inspired by her desire to find a solution to labor problems and the creative void she experienced working as a designer in the Los Angeles fashion industry. LaborFruit was a pioneer in the rebirth of one-of-a-kind handmade fashion sparking a rebellion that has spread across the globe.

She currently lives in Portland, Oregon with husband, Aaron, and son, Bucky.
