A place to share my love for fashion and sewing, while trying to change the conversation about fashion and how it impacts the environment.
When I design clothing and patterns, I first think about how I am going to move in them. Can I climb a tree? Can I walk my dog for miles? Do they have pockets? Do they look good with sneakers? But functionality doesn't have to compromise aesthetics. Keeping designs minimal and classic ensures that they will outlive ever changing trends.
Our Planet and its Inhabitants
The issues regarding fashion and really "fast-fashion" fall under the umbrella of environmental and humanitarian issues. It's time to think about fashion in those terms because our current model is failing life on this planet.
Just One Person
Not only do I sell small collections, that I design and sew myself, I post sewing tutorials, and I write about how we can change the way we shop for clothes. I don't think I am going to change the world, but I do try to live my own values, and I'd like to encourage others to do the same.
