More and more people are transitioning their wardrobes to focus on ethically produced garments, small brands, and sustainable options. But the world of slow fashion can seem daunting to those who are new to it; there's so much information out there, and some of it can be unnecessarily self-righteous, dogmatic, or preachy. And when many brands are online, selling direct to consumer, it's not always easy to differentiate one brand from another.
Where to begin? How to figure out sizing? What the heck is hemp fabric? And is there a way to be “sustainable” and "ethical" while still looking and feeling great?
As a designer and seamstress, I aim to empower clients to learn more about garment construction and manufacturing, so you can make informed decisions about how to best integrate quality items into your wardrobe. I'm here to help guide you in your quest to support conscientious brands and practices, and make this process as easy as possible for you.
I believe our wardrobes are a reflection of how we move through the world, an extension or expression of identity, and a creative act. For you, clothing might be functional, a shield, a way of connecting with others, or a cocoon. Whatever it is, I want to create a holistic, nonjudgmental, positive environment for refining and reorganizing your wardrobe. This is a process of co-creation, and in the end, you’ll possess a wardrobe with pieces that are 100% true to you and your lifestyle.
Whether you’re starting a new job, moving to a new place, navigating parenthood for the first time, needing a second opinion, looking for a reset, or cultivating clarity, I’d love to connect with you to see if it would be a good fit.
