Cara, raised on the salt air of Cape Cod, is the girly, lacey and sparkly side of Modern Vintage. After graduating from Simmons College, traveling the world, and six years in the corporate production world, Cara yearned for a more creative and independent role. An entrepreneur at heart, she always knew she wanted to own her own business someday. After falling in love with textile design, she knew it was the perfect fit for her. A designer of many mediums, Cara loves the mix of vintage and modern, as well as furniture with feminine lines, rich fabrics and soft pastels and metallics.

Cara leads a busy life with her four daughters, Soleil, Ivy, Téa, and Isla. Although she loses her keys and wallet almost daily, she manages to get out the door every morning accessorized to the max. Cara cannot function without a strong cup of coffee every morning, and when she isn't designing one-of-a-kind wedding invitations or teaching Taylor Swift's fan club how to sew, you can find Cara on the beach surrounded by her growing family and friends.
