About Me
I've been involved with making clothing since before I was born - officially I've been working in fashion jobs for about 20 years. I love fabric, my passion is historical costume and the archeology behind clothing. Typically, I would choose detail over minimalism, rich over austere, color, light, custom made over mass produced, soft touch over edginess, natural over artificial, earth first, recycle and re-use. I work cocooned at home, my 2 yorkies at my feet, happily antiipating my gorgeous husband's return from work..
Fashion Industry Experience

What is hot in fashion this year?
For me, there is no one item, but there is a spirit of self expression, individuality, identifying with your own personal culture, be original, not a copy, re-use, recycle, conserve don't waste, avoid the instant gratification addiction, do you really need so many pairs of shoes you can't even count them? Feed hungry mouths...feed Africa by supporting African business.
