After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Fashion design I have worked in a variety of areas of fashion; from Women's Ready to Wear in Los Angeles and New York, to Ballet costuming at the Houston Ballet, to now Bridal alterations and developing my own line of gowns. It has been an exciting journey. With each new experience I find there is so much more to learn. Taking patterning and garment construction to the next level and really using it as an artistic expression is what inspires me.
My love for design originated with my love for dance and feminine beauty and expression. Women over the ages have used clothing to express themselves. You can see how as women's role in society has changed so has the way we present our bodies to the world. My roots in dance are definitely reflected in my work. The movement of fabrics, how they fall and drape over the body. The development of flattering classic silhouettes with a modern minimal twist. Emphasis on hand detailing. It's those small delicate touches that separate one garment from the next. I want to stay true to keeping my business and my vision personal, hand crafted, beautiful custom pieces that will be passed down from one generation to the next. I also want each of my clients to have a voice in the design process.
Designs evolve and styles change, but staying true to supporting women's beauty is timeless. Making women look and feel beautiful, inside and out; that is the vision I strive for each and every day.
