I was a custom clothier for 18 years, designing couture suits and eveningwear for diplomats and politicians. My designs have been worn to events at the White House and Buckingham Palace.

All of my items are from the highest quality fabrics -- pure silks, Italian leathers -- as well as sterling silver and natural stones for my line of metalsmithed jewelry.

I am eco-friendly -- I use upcycled buckles in my line of belts, and vintage jewelry components in my one-of-a-kind handbags. My leathergoods use by-product leather so that no animals outside of the natural food chain are killed needlessly for the sake of "Fashion".

Eco-consciousness also extends to my packaging: maybe it's just me, but I'm not fond of little drawstring bags or fancy ribbons. Your items will be packaged simply in a handmade felt envelope -- which can also be used for daily storage -- and shipped inside a bubble mailer. Your shipping mailers may also recycled -- they may not look pretty on the outside, but what's on the inside certainly is! Getting it to you safely, without creating additional waste, is my priority.

I work every day from a smoke- and pet-free studio. I do have rescue cats at home; they are not allowed at the studio although sometimes they sneak a hair or two onto my clothes -- never onto yours!
