When President & Founder of Sydney’s Closet, our very own Phyllis Brasch Librach, first traded in her “headlines for hemlines” she never imagined how far her small business could grow. A former journalist turned plus-size gown magnate, Phyllis is being celebrated as a Top Women’s Business Owner by St. Louis Business Monthly. As a tenacious entrepreneur Phyllis is “honored and proud to be in such good company. These women are in a league of their own.” Over the years, other winners have included successful business owners like Maxine Clark, Chief Executive Bear at Build-A-Bear Workshop. Realizing that a larger percentage of women are size 12+ than size 2, Phyllis took it upon herself to create beautiful formal dress options for women of all sizes and shapes. Her small vision has grown into a thriving business that Phyllis dedicates herself to everyday with pride. Being recognized by St Louis Business Monthly has proven to Phyllis that “…with our combined success, we can illustrate how women are reshaping the business world and breaking the proverbial glass ceiling.” Congrats Phyllis! We couldn’t be prouder!!
