My clothing line represents the infinite creative possibilities that exist in the world around us. The foundation of my clothing line will always be defined by 100% recycled materials. Each time I collect a piece of clothing at a second hand shop, I immediately get a feeling from that garment of what its next form will be. I love the inspiration each garment presents. There is always a jumping point; a graphic, a style line, some kind of clue as to what the garment is to become.
My love of clothing came to me as far back as I can remember. When I was put into girlish dresses for family photos, or my first-day-of-school clothes, a feeling came over me. I realized that those clothes were an expression of who I am as a person. Little did I know as a kid, when I sat with my neighborhood friend trying to combine two different tops that didn't fit anymore, that I would go into recycling clothing for a living!
There is something incredible about using what is already around us as a medium and changing it. Recreating it not only fit into the world today, but to fit a person in today's world. I try and channel that unique energy that exists out there amongst people like myself, who have always found themselves striving to find something different and special to wear and express who they are as an individual.
Everything I make is a piece of me - a vision of trying to capture part of your essence in a garment. No two pieces I make will ever be exactly alike, which is the beauty of hand-made one of a kinds. I hope that you enjoy my creations as much as I love making them.
Peace to you in the world.
