A native New Yorker, Phyllis Wiener, is the visionary who introduced
the Love Quotes brand to fashion cognoscenti around the world.
With a Master’s degree from Columbia University’s Teachers College,
Phyllis taught school children for many years, first in Spanish Harlem
and later in Paris where her passion for beauty and keen sense of
aesthetics were honed. She then taught in London during the era of the
Beatles, the Maharishi and meditation and traveled extensively
throughout Europe, Asia and Africa.
Returning to the United States, Phyllis put her undergraduate degree
in merchandising to work as a consultant to contemporary retailers
nationwide. She scoured markets, factories and backrooms for fabulous,
undiscovered items that would set those stores and their customers apart
from and ahead of the pack.
In 2003, on one of those scouting expeditions, she discovered a
factory that produced unique fabrics that could be made into luxurious
scarves, wraps, and sarongs at affordable prices and in a gorgeous range
of colors. Offered at first only to her consulting clientele, the
scarves sold so well that the Love Quotes brand was born and Phyllis’s
dream of founding a fashion company with a charitable mission was
offer the eyelash fringe style in two different weights: lightweight
Italian Linen / Viscose (perfect for year-round wear or to be worn
inside) or a heavier weight Rayon / Poly blend (to keep you warm in the
winter). The lightweight Linen comes in Mallard, Charcoal, Romance
(Pink), Portobello (Tan), Meditation (Black) and Sapphire.
heavier Rayon / Poly blend scarf comes in Greylange, Cameo (Tan), Agean
and Caviar (Black). These scarves are just gorgeous and when wrapped
can provide an accent to a wardrobe or a stylish layer of warmth on
those chilly days in the fall and winter.
