Your creative vision has helped to pull Patrice out of her comfort zone but still enables her to be true to herself and style.

Her passion for fashion and style started at the age of 16 when she started to create belts and jeans for her classmates and sketched garments she saw in magazines. After the death of her daughter on December 16, 2008, Mary completely stopped what she loved and fell into depression. When Mary began her healing process, she decided to name her company TWELVE16 in memory of her daughter and to represent everything that she gained after such a tragic event. Twelve16 represents strength, courage, growth, power, beauty, wisdom, confidence, and EMPOWERMENT.

"Thank you for taking the stress out of shopping. You have an amazing eye for fashion and style. You always get the job done. THANK YOU! " - L. Mason
"As an artist I am required to be great in many areas. Many artists know that without a team, it is very hard to do everything and look great doing it. You have truly elevated me as an artist and I am very blessed to have you as a part of my team. I no longer have to worry about looking great while I conquer this road to success in the music industry.
During my recent photo shoot, you pushed me and made me feel comfortable at the same time. Your styling picks were a reflection of my personality with a touch of your magic. More than anything, I appreciated that you sent me texts to encourage me the day before the shoot and even when you made a change suggestion on the looks, I knew it was ABSOLUTELY in my best interest. The fact that you thought about me outside of your obligation to do so is what offers a client a level of comfort. You are truly talented and I have officially decided that I am your "styling wife"...I will get jealous when you work with others :-). THANK YOU!"
