I am a Designer/Maker, transforming reclaimed garments and textile salvage into bespoke and limited edition collections of Sustainable Eco Fashion.

Recycling/Upcycling have been a significant part of my design aesthetic since before the labels became politically correct. It’s in my DNA. The creative women I’ve known, and their ingenuity and skill with traditional handcrafts, are the threads of tradition that inspire my own work.

Hand producing a quality product from discards and remnants has unique challenges as well as endless possibilities, which is why I choose to focus on limited edition collections and bespoke, one-of-a-kind pieces. The underlying challenge I find, is to exceed expectations of what “upcycled” fashion might be, and create items which are far removed from the obvious “recycled” market.
