My name is Lisa Veronica Glasper, I was born in Jacksonville,Florida. I started sewing at the age of seven. Seeing my mother make our school clothes inspired me to sew. I first started with sewing doll baby clothes . Once I was 11 years old, my mom bought me my first sewing machine. I made my first bodysuit and I wore it to school ( wish I had some pictures to show) anyway from there our family became apart of a religious organization that had a sewing factory (another story for later) that I attended. I was at the sewing factory for no more than a month I did gain the basics to sewing, I was 16 years old at the time . 3 years ago after having my daughter I decided I wanted to attend a Fashion Show .As I seen the designs and felt the energy of the models and runway it re-lit my fire for sewing. I decided to do Fashion Shows that following year which were interested,crazy and challenging for me which I will tell you all about in my next blog but, this is what started the journey of Veronica Glasper and my business DLG Fashion Boutique LLC
