“One of the greatest successes of my life is seeing success come from someone else because of how I supported them,” says Bianca Kofman, Interim Area Manager at Cole Haan, interviewed by fellow co-lab member, Denise Baca. Born and raised in CA, Bianca attended San Diego State University, majoring in Kinesiology with the intention of becoming a physical therapist. Right before graduating from college, Bianca unexpectedly started working for Pura Vida Bracelets through a college connection. During her time as Product Manager at the socially conscious accessory brand, she increased their charity collection from 3 bracelet designs to 100 and was officially introduced to the fashion industry. Soon after this role, she began her fashion blog, ultimately connecting her with brands which led her to fashion styling and creating her own agency, B. Rose Creative. She is currently Interim Area Manager for Cole Haan’s Bay Area stores, and is a self-proclaimed lifelong learner who hasn't ruled out any future career ideas.
