Breathe Couture clothing, jewelry and accessories are creations made
primarily from recycled and vintage materials. I've collected
vintage lace, ribbon, jewelry, since I was a little girl and
love mixing these components with new materials for a modern
twist, (while still trying to keep the vintage romance). I hate
throwing things out, I'm a bit of a hoarder in a sense, but the
good is that I try to recycle materials as much as possible. Most
Breathe Couture items are One of a Kind and made from at least
50% recycled/re-purposed
materials.
My inspiration comes from many places (number one being God and I thank Him for giving me this gift of creativity).
There is also that little girl in my that still loves things of fantasy and fairy tales.
I am strongly influenced by couture designers such as Coco
Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior,
Jean-Paul Gaultier, and many others. I also love the flirty and
romantic designer Betsey Johnson and Miuccia Prada who
brings a modern touch to femininity and gives an 'edginess' to
show a woman can be both feminine and strong. John Galliano said in an
interview, "I want to make
women dream."
And he most certainly does. I want to achieve that same goal, to
bring
women into a world of beauty, fantasy and whimsy.
I'm very much inspired by the outdoors, my garden, the ocean and the country. This is why you'll see lots of floral prints, plaids, checkered prints, country chic style clothing. Design influence from brands like Rag and Bone and William Rast are certainly there in some of my SS 2011 clothing collection.
I like to think of Breathe Couture as what I call "comfort couture", I make fun clothing by hand that is simplified and One of A Kind ready to wear.

Send me a message if you are interested in carrying Breathe Couture at your specialty boutique (physical shops only-not online). I am not currently accepting Consignment requests as this time.

Breathe Couture can be followed on Twitter @breathecouture and we are also on FB.
