Barbara Bumgardner fell in love with fashion when she was a young adult working in a men’s clothing store in New York. From that moment she began to nurture her passion by taking as many fashion courses as possible to better understand the industry, quality differences between fabrics and how to merchandize the products. Continuing her zest for fashion she partnered with Brian Marchand in 2014 and created the Barefoot Designs brand.
If you don’t find Barbara in the Barefoot Designs showroom located in Cocoa Village, you may hear on a local radio station spreading the word about Barefoot Designs. Barbara is a Board Member for Cocoa Village and she actively supports several organizations benefiting the Cocoa Village Community.
When Barbara is not working she spends time with her two sons and enjoys being on the water paddle boarding.
