A savvy and highly successful businesswoman, Heather Thomson is the creator of "Yummie by Heather Thomson," a popular and innovative shapewear line. In her 20 years as a successful designer and stylist, Heather has worked with some of the biggest names in entertainment including Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Tina Knowles and Sean "Diddy" Combs. She was the founding Design Director for his Sean John line and is credited as a major force behind multiple CFDA award nominations. A married mother to two children -- Jax, 9, and Ella Rae, 7 -- the idea for "Yummie by Heather Thomson" was born shortly after having her children. Disappointed by existing shapewear, she set out to create something sexier, comfier, and "yummier." She came up with her patented three-panel system that is now Yummie's signature. Since the launch of her original tank, "Yummie by Heather Thomson" has expanded into categories beyond shapewear such as denim, leggings, panties, and bras. In addition to her professional work, Heather supports several charitable initiatives including Kellner Family Pediatric Liver Disease Foundation, City of Hope, and the Tick Borne Disease Alliance. In recognition of her philanthropic work, Heather has been a recipient of a H.U.G. Award, presented to her by the Intimate Apparel Square Club, the American Liver Champion Award from the American Liver Foundation, as well as the City of Hope Spirit of Life Award.
