THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! We owe each of many thanks for the part that you played in the launch. It was fabulous to work with all of you and you each did your part to make sure that the vision of the designer and Designs By Malyse was achieved.

I also want to say a BIG thanks to all the local businesses that not only were a part of the launch team, but those who helped promote the event. Thank you for letting me put up posters in your places of business, as well as, postcards too. You truly helped get the word out and I am so proud to be a Chattanoogan that has been supported by my own hometown! You all are awesome!!
