I have always been a maker. Starting at the age of four, I made clothes for my dolls out of scraps left over from my grandmother's quilts. As I got older, I would make clothes for myself and my friends for fun. I made a wedding dress for a close friend, and came to fully understand the power of a good garment. When I saw how emotional the bride and her loved ones were upon seeing her in my design, I knew then my purpose was to make clothes. Clothes you can feel confident and comfortable in, to make memories in, to live in.
