Her love of fabrics, colors, and patterns continued throughout the years, and in 1978 she founded a women's sportswear company called Marsha, Inc. Later, she formed her own custom-design clothing business for private clients. In the summer of 2002, after discovering a treasure trove of vintage handkerchiefs in a Pennsylvania antiques shop, Marsha made her first Hankie Couture dress-and hasn't stopped since.
