Rhapsody Hahn-Chaney is an energetic combo of fashion designer, ambitious entrepreneur, and a work-at-home-mom. Knowing her intended career path at a young age helped guide her to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design at the age of 20. She has worked at Donna Karan International, spent years as a design assistant at a Manhattan-based fashion house, and has also served in the United States Coast Guard tailor shop.
The concept behind Turnovers was formed when she became a mother. Her first baby's gender was a surprise so her friends and family threw her a gender neutral baby shower. Two years later, she was laid off while on maternity leave with her second child. There was no better time to launch her own line. Becoming an entrepreneur was a blessing because it allowed her to raise her sons and work towards her career goals at a self-directed pace.
Rhapsody raised over $18,000 through crowd funding and pre-sales. Her line is now sold in select stores, but mostly available online. Rhapsody believes that her story was written for the purpose of supporting other mothers.
She intends to use the success of her company to provide help to women through donations made to pregnancy crisis centers, and she strives to encourage parents and reinforce health and safety for babies worldwide. Her longterm goal is to hire other work-at-home-moms so they too can maintain a career while nurturing their families.
