She is our CEO, Founder and Creative Director.

What is your name and what do you do at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

My name is Stephanie and I live and breathe THIS IS A LOVE SONG.


What does a typical work day at TIALS HQ look like?

Every day is different but it consists of meetings, conference calls, lots of brainstorming and designing as well as getting down to the numbers when we dive into analytics. We also get a lot of visitors into the showroom from stylists to influencers to our customers so it’s a lot of fun but my days can get very long when I have to talk to our team in Bali. On these days a typical worsometimes I don’t wrap up until 10pm and have to work sunday nights.  


What are some big projects you (guys) are working on?

We are currently working on a new line that will launch in the next few months. The designs are getting a positive response so far  which we are super excited about. Stay tuned!

What’s your favorite thing about working at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

I love my team the most. I enjoy going to the HQ every day because I get to work with hardworking creative females that love what they do and inspire me to keep making moves.


How did you get started with THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

We started it in Bali because I was looking for something comfortable to wear and decided to make it instead and so the brand was born and sold in our first store back in 2010. Before the era of online shopping and instagram!


What’s your favorite TIALS/THIS IS A LOVE SONG item?

The Logo Simple Bra. I live in it and it is the most comfortable bralette we have ever designed.

 

Any tips for young girls who are wanting to be a boss babe?

Keep moving and keep making mistakes. That’s how you will learn! And don’t forget to surround yourself with positive people that push you to do better. I would also find a mentor so you can learn from them. Reach out to people you look up to, you’d be surprised on their reply!


What does the modern working woman mean to you?

The modern working woman now is multi faceted. She does not have to be in the office from 9-5, wearing her corporate suit every day. In fact, she can be taking the most important call of her day while she’s working out at the gym. The modern working woman has big dreams and is not afraid to be disruptive in her respective industry and challenge excites her. She is savvy and goes after what she wants. She is beauty and brains because she’s constantly invests in herself and never stops learning.


Meet Kianna.

She is our Marketing, Showroom & Sales Manager.

What is your name and what do you do at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

My name is Kianna Monique and I am the Marketing/Sales/Showroom Manager at THIS IS A LOVE SONG


What does a typical work day at TIALS HQ look like?

A typical work day starts off with everyone getting settled in the office, then typically 30 minutes within the day, we have a meeting to go over the calendar, projects we’ve been working on, and priorities for the day/week and month.

We then start working on our tasks and our office pup really keeps things interesting by making us all laugh all the time.


What are some big projects you are working on?

We working on getting more involved with our community with future local events that will be opened to the public. We are all super excited to get this started and to meet you all in person

What’s your favorite thing about working at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

I love that I’m able to go to work with people that I get along with. There’s always a positive energy in the air and I feel like that is extremely important in a work environment. Plus there’s an office dog (@tommytials) sometimes and that always makes the office interesting.

How did you get started at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

I was finishing up my degree at California State University Northridge and I needed an internship for my last semester of school. I found THIS IS A LOVE SONG while I was searching for fashion marketing internships on Indeed.com. I heard back from the CEO to start working there that semester and I was lucky enough to still be able to be part of the team, even after I graduated.


What’s your favorite TIALS/THIS IS A LOVE SONG item?

My favorite item from THIS IS A LOVE SONG will have to be the Rosalie Bodysuit and my favorite TIALS items are the Plaid Racerback Bra, Logo Hi-Cut Panty Plaid, The Bianca Bodysuit and the Done Bike Shorts.

I just think our stuff is really cute and it’s hard for me to pick just one or two!

Any tips for young girls who are wanting to be a boss babe?

Start by making a goal and then the steps that you need to take for that goal will slowly present themselves to you if you are open to receive them. Stay open to new opportunities coming your way. You are never too early or young to start working on your future goals, even if your friends are out having fun. Invest in yourself first.


What does the modern working woman mean to you?

The modern working woman is organized, multi-faceted, determined and has an entrepreneurial spirit.




Meet Tamara.

She is our Production and Design Coordinator.

What is your name and what do you do at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

My name is Tamara Dalah and I’m the Production and Design Coordinator at THIS IS A LOVE SONG.


What does a typical work day at TIALS HQ look like?

The thing about TIALS HQ, is that no two work days are the same! Everyday is revolved around different projects whether it’s designing new collections, sourcing new materials, designing cool stickers or making cool graphic content for social media and our website.


What are some big projects you are working on?

We are are actually working on getting out a really big collection that I think everyone will really love... something we’ve never done before, but I can’t tell you more than that!

What’s your favorite thing about working at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

I love my team I work with, we’re all supportive of each other and work really well with each other. That being said, we know how to have a balance of a productive, but still a fun workspace.


How did you get started at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

I actually graduated from FIDM with my degree in Merchandise Product Development and after I graduated I started working a retail job for about 8 months. Learning that retail was NOT for me (like at all), I found THIS IS A LOVE SONG while researching design and fashion internships. I was lucky enough to hear back from Stephanie (our CEO aka work mom) and was eventually hired!


What’s your favorite TIALS/THIS IS A LOVE SONG item?

I am in LOVE with the Rosalie bodysuit. I own both colors and love pairing them with some vintage levi’s and black heels. Hopefully more colors will come soon..


Any tips for young girls who are wanting to be a boss babe?

As cheesy as it sounds, I think it’s important to never give up with what dream you’re trying to pursue. Hard work and motivation won’t disappoint you. Sometimes things don’t work out but that’s okay, because I think the universe has a funny way of saving the better things for later. I used to work at a preschool, and back then I never would have thought I would be designing clothing and making graphics that are on stickers and scrunchies.


What does the modern working woman mean to you?

A modern working woman is someone who is motivated in all aspects of life. She’s strong and has her priorities set straight, but she also knows how to balance her life out.

 

Meet Tiya.

She is our Assistant Designer.

 

What is your name and what do you do at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

My name is Tiya, and I design at This Is A Love Song

 

What does a typical work day at TIALS HQ look like?

At TIALS no day is the same. Some days were designing, other days we might be on a photoshoot, or making videos. There is always something new.

 

What are some big projects you are working on?

We’re working on our youtube channel, and starting series and videos on there- I’m really excited for that!

 

What’s your favorite thing about working at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

Not only do I get to do what I am passionate about, but I am surrounded by women who constantly inspire me everyday. I’m always learning something new.

 

How did you get started at THIS IS A LOVE SONG?

I was looking for something new, and saw that one of my favorite brands was hiring interns. I took a chance, and I’m glad I did!

 

What’s your favorite TIALS/THIS IS A LOVE SONG item?

My favorite item would be the TIALS logo bodysuit! I wear it almost any chance I get.

 

Any tips for young girls who are wanting to be a boss babe?

Remember to take care of yourself! When we’re busy, and working we have a tendency to over exert ourselves. Take a break every now and then. (Don’t forget to eat and rest.)

 

What does the modern working woman mean to you?

To me the modern working woman creates her own reality, she’s not afraid to take risks. (If there’s no seat at the table for her, she might end up building her own.) She is passionate about what she does, and works hard to reach her goals.
