Inspired to design from birth, Gretchen’s parents Scott and Brenda Forward founded their design business in 1972. Creating competition gear and components for the Motor-Sports industry, Gretchen Christine grew up half tomboy, half fashionista, racing motorcycles and playing dress up. Watching the family business grow into the internationally renowned “Scotts Performance Products,” which still stands today in Glendale, CA. With this strong family history, Gretchen dreamed of bringing her own sense of style and performance to the beauty and fashion industry. Gretchen’s desire to create and design have no bounds. In 2011 she continued to expand the brand by creating the “The Gretchen Christine Collection.” The goal is to eventually have the collection compass all things in a woman’s closet. In addition to Gretchen’s design aspirations, she is recognized as an emerging performance artist and actress.
