fashions best kept secret. With over four decades of experience working with entertainment icons and corporate giants, she is now launching her brand.. Victoria Shaffer Designs!
Victoria Shaffer was born a designer. At the tender age of 7 she picked up a needle and thread with the instruction of her grandmother and has never put it down. At 12, she designed the wardrobe for a family friend cruising around the world. At 19, she started her first company POSITIVE ENERGIES and soon realized that her talent for fashion design was more than hobby. She enrolled at the prestigious San Francisco School of Fashion Design, and was blessed to be commissioned by the late great Muhammed Ali, to design the robe he would wear for his title bout in Zaire, Africa. This opportunity expanded to creating an entire wardrobe for Muhammed Ali’s wife and a 20+ year career designing costumes for Film, Television and Broadway and clothing in cities from coast to coast and Europe.
Victoria eventually settled in Las Vegas; the entertainment capital of the world, where she designed for top MGM Grand shows. Some how she found time to teach Costume Design at Las Vegas Academy High School for the Performing Arts as well as a design course at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
The teaching experience was very fulfilling, however her desire to design was never diminished. 11-years ago Victoria designed two t-shirts with the word BLESSED embellished on them in rhinestone, as a gift for a close friend….. the friend just happened to be a celebrity in Hollywood and insisted that she make more for his friends, initially Victoria resisted but after thinking about it what better message to share than to remind as many people as possible that they are BLESSED. Thousands of pieces later it turns out that this clothing line and message has been the most fulfilling endeavor above all of her extraordinary accomplishments to date.
