Founder / Creative Director
"Fashion should be fun, get creative, use your imagination...and be confident in your own personal style."
Michelle Giles is the Founder & Creative Director behind Shay & Coco. From a very young age, Michelle was obsessed with fashion and the world of clothing. Some of her first memories are associated with what outfit she was wearing during that specific time. Michelle attended Washington State University (Go Cougs!) for her undergrad, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communications. Post graduation, she decided to take a leap of faith! Michelle left the great state of Washington and headed to sunny, Los Angeles to live.
It was there that she finally decided it was time to follow her real passion. She enrolled in the Visual Communication program at FIDM and earned her professional degree one year later. After different roles in the clothing and product industry Michelle decided it was time to embark on her dream and create her own collection - Shay & Coco was born in 2016.
"Dare to be brave enough to follow your dreams so you can live a life you love!"
Sarah Layton became a partner in 2016. Sarah is a teacher by trade and is raising three young daughters. Sarah was encouraged by her oldest daughter, Grace, to find success in social selling. It was something the two enjoyed together and time well spent.
They loved opening boxes of the newest fashion and sharing it with their friends and family. Taking her daughter's love of fashion and mixing it with her success, Sarah assisted in cultivating and implementing the social selling aspect to Shay & Coco. Sarah and her daughter look forward to sharing their dream with other women and mompreneurs across the United States.
