Patience Brewster by MacKenzie-Childs, having been acquired by MacKenzie-Childs, will continue to include the original designs with the very same point of view it has always had. “The whimsical nature of the collection folds naturally into our brand, and it will be so much fun having these characters to include in our seasonal and holiday stories,” noted MacKenzie-Childs’ Creative Director and Chief Brand Officer Rebecca Proctor. “Both companies love happy, beautiful things that are made with care by hand, and we enjoy the idea of producing things that you can continue to love for a very long time,” said Proctor. Patience Brewster herself adds, “The instant Rebecca Proctor and I met, a harmonious synchronicity sparked, which made friendship and business possibilities appear rompingly endless.”
