ANGELA GARICAÂ was born in Colombia in 1980. She graduated from lâ€™Ecole SupÃ©rieure des Arts Culinaires de Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France.

Inspired by the concept of Lovely Daze, Angela launched her own company, Lovely Daze Desserts in Miami.
LESLEY MAÂ is excited to start a new chapter of her life as she will be a Ph. D. student in Art History, Theory, and Criticism at the University of California, San Diego in fall 2009. She thanks her friends, family, and New York for the inspirations throughout the past six years.
