About

Welcome to Peaceful Fashions! Here you will find unique, meaningful and high quality wearable art that celebrates life and love. Each piece is a unique, one-of-a-kind expression that possesses a positive energy of its own. All items are 100% handcrafted by me, Nellie, with love and care using sustainable zero-waste techniques. I save all my scraps from previous designs and stitch them together for my patchwork collection. I love combining different elements like color, pattern and texture to create original designs. I am inspired by nature, art and all things of beauty that abound. I create one-of-a-kind garments and accessories that are stylish, functional and unique.

I am a professionally trained seamstress with 8 years working in a small upholstery shop as the sole seamstress. I also have a formal education from Lasell College where I graduated in 2012 with a degree in Fashion Design and Production.

I am a seamstress at heart, but enjoy exploring and working with other mediums. I try my hardest to make items that are as environmentally friendly as possible. All of my patchwork designs zero-waste design and made from all-new upcycled material, mostly discontinued swatches and scraps.

I hope you like what you see, and check back often as new items are always being created! Please contact me if you are interested in special orders or custom designs! I would love to work with you to get you that perfect piece!

Items are lovingly handcrafted in picturesque "Paradise City", Northampton MA. Located in the heart of the Five College area, we are home to the prestigious Smith College for women. I am so blessed to have been born and raised in such supportive community grounded in culture, arts and academics. Our unofficial slogan is "Where the coffee is strong, and so are the women". I am greatly inspired by the strong women and men who have called this area home, including Sojourner Truth, Emily Dickinson, Amelia Earhart, Calvin Coolidge, Dr. Seuss, Sylvia Plath, Robert Frost and Johnny Appleseed.
