At 7 years old, the walls of Trish’s bedroom were covered with pictures of horses and models from Vogue and Elle magazines. Trish grew up and became dental hygienist but also worked part time designing clothing in the other bedroom of her home. During the rise of the fitness industry of the 90’s she went on to create a company called Hotskins Bodywear, and became successful in about 50 countries. She received Designer of the Year in her field for creating the “Anatomical Fit”.
