As an "old Detroiter", Regina was a well-known fashion mogul about town who could often be spotted at The Magic Stick, or around the College for Creative Studies where she studied design.

Regina gets her love of fashion from her mother's classic old European style and you'll recognize Regina's line of jewelry, Passage, gracing the wrists and necks of Portland's who's who.
