THE BRILLIANCE BEHIND THE BRAND
Growing up in the foothills of the Adirondacks and Saratoga Springs, New York, many of Deborah's fondest memories are of "backyard" picnics at the track, learning to golf with her dad, and her first concerts at SPAC. Much of her work harkens to the beauty of nature, her love of family and friends, and the warmth of the region’s history. These threads of culture, tradition, and personal bonds were woven throughout her childhood and she carries them with her today.
Deborah has built her career around design. Her experience in couture fashion, marketing and retail merchandising has made her sought after for her impeccable taste, attention to detail, tenacity and warm sentimentality. While life took her away from Saratoga and brought her to points like Boston and Dallas, Deborah’s ethos — love where you live — called her home to the Spa City. It was here that she reconnected with family, met her husband and found the inspiration to launch TOGA HERITAGE.
Deborah saw a need for personalized, thoughtful and stylish touches that helped evoke the Saratoga ambiance. She quickly became committed to developing a line of lifestyle products that do just that, and so TOGA HERITAGE was born. Her line of home goods, celebration items and bespoke gifts encourage her customers to take pride in Saratoga’s culture and history, whether they are locals or locals at heart. Graceful details and elegant touches are hallmarks of Deborah’s work, as each product is designed to help customers embrace making and keeping traditions.
When she is not working on a new design, you will find Deborah spending time with her two loves (her husband and her dog Dutch), running in a charitable 5K, or patronizing local shops and eateries. Deborah believes in building community, celebrating life’s special moments, and reveling in love and laughter with friends, neighbors and family.
