MEET OUR FOUNDER
With a degree in business econ and studio art, The Paper Dress is the perfect mix Caroline’s passion in design and business. She loves creating and is always looking for a new creative outlet. “I can make that” is her go to phrase.
My love for creativity and design started before I can remember and has always been a part of my life. I made the ‘real’ Paper Dress as a little girl, complete with paper shoes and headband. Ever since then, I’ve been creating with any medium I can get my hands on. In 2013 I started my first official businesses; a clothing line, Caroline Dawn and monogram boutique.
After graduating Wofford College in 2017 I took a job at a non-profit software company in Charleston, SC. Immediately I realized a normal 9-5 job was not for me. I became a full time entrepreneur less than a year later to focus on growing my businesses and soon moved to Charlotte, NC.
With years of various business experiences and creativity, in 2020 I took the plunge and launched The Paper Dress. I wanted to create a brand that enveloped all of my interests and creativity in one space. A space to find unique accessories for you and your home, affordable blue & white pieces, and highlight other incredible small businesses I truly admire. Under The Paper Dress brand I design unique earrings that are super lightweight, made from quality materials, and most importantly make you smile.
