When she was working corporate jobs in New York City, Sarah LaFleur hated getting dressed in the morning; the choices in her closet felt overwhelming, many items didn’t fit right or wore out too quickly. So in 2011 she launched a line of clothing for working women that would be simple, elegant, and well-tailored. She had no experience in fashion but partnered with a top-line designer, Miyako Nakamura, to create M.M.LaFleur. Today it’s a multi-million dollar company with loyal customers from Capitol Hill to Silicon Valley. PLUS in our post-script “How You Built That,” Taylor Mali explains how he created Metaphor Dice, which ease the pain of writing the first line of a poem.
