Episode 10: Rachel Park

Rachel Park is a tie designer, breast cancer THRIVER/awareness advocate, and founder of Rachel Park Designs and Survivor Moda.  Born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in the Midwest, she grew up making clothes for family and friends and loved the creative process.  Since 2005, she moved from Chicago to New York City, where her ties fused her Asian heritage with her distinct Brooklyn style and have received international press.  After many years in Brooklyn, Rachel relocated to Los Angeles and in 2014, she was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer.  After over a year of chemotherapy, surgeries and radiation, she was officially declared cancer-free.  This experience led to the development of Survivor Moda and The ParkPuff™ , a portable, stylish, chest-comforting seatbelt pillow for breast cancer patients.  She is an advocate for breast cancer awareness, a foodie and techie, and enjoys coffee and Korean BBQ (not together), going to the beach, and playing with her pug.  You can reach her on Twitter @SurvivorModa, @RachelParkTies, follow her on Instagram @RachelParkTies, and like her on Facebook at facebook.com/rachel.park.designs.ties.  Is that a mouthful or what!?
