Michele Barber-Perry
A graduate of Columbia University, Michele began her design career while working as a type-setter in the late 1990s. She joins the Paris Essentials team as a web designer but continues to work with other mediums— including print, illustration, animation, film and even costumes for the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. She lives in Harlem with her husband and 1 year old son, Langston Toussaint, who somehow manages to both inspire AND distract her from her work.
