The brand has gained a loyal following, and the products may be found in stores and boutiques around the country.

At Evntiv, Retta will lead the design process for many of the company’s most prominent events including galas, private parties, awards shows and business meetings. Leritz will also manage some of the company’s largest accounts both in St. Louis and around the country. “I have been drawn to the event industry for some time. After seeing the way Sam and his team lead clients through the event planning experience, I saw so many parallels to how I work with my clients. I am excited to bring my creative experience to Evntiv”, explains Leritz.
