About

For a look that is yours alone, my artisan pieces are as unique as the wearer.

fashgal started from a love of fabrics, textures and accessories.

My handmade, one of a kind and limited edition scarves, cowls, neck ruffs, wraps and kerchiefs uses varied textures, patterns, unique color manipulation and beaded trimmings.

As a designer working in the garment industry, I was fortunate to have traveled and worked in the Far East, India, Eastern Europe and Greece. Finding creative inspiration in my travels abroad and at home, I incorporated my passions into colorful, modern and ageless items that you will reach for time and time again.

As a designer working in the garment industry, I was fortunate to have traveled and worked in the Far East, India, Eastern Europe and Greece. Finding creative inspiration in my travels abroad and at home, I incorporated my passions into colorful, modern and ageless items that you will reach for time and time again. My unique textured silk pieces are hand folded and pleated one at a time. No two are alike. Other fabrics include silk/rayon velvet burn-out patterns, leather/suede, lace and cotton/linen. Assorted beads, semi precious stones, freshwater pearls, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, found and
repurposed jewelry are the finishing touch.

Learning to sew from my mom at a very early age, I found magic in our trips to fabric stores and playing in her button tin. An "end of season" Vogue or Butterick pattern book was my wish book... I created clothes for my dolls and stuffed animals. Turning my sights on sewing for myself was a natural progression and a necessity. A challenge shopping for clothes, since my height was an issue at an early age. I sew for myself today, although not as much as I would like. I am a proud, tall woman at 6' 3". If given a choice for another inch or two, I'd take the inches. And yes, I wear heels.

I am a graduate of FIDM, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where I studied fashion design and attended the Debut program.

A few words that I live by;
I am a problem solver by nature. Some of my failures and or accidents, have become unexpected and wonderfully creative new designs.

The unexpected has taught me to be open for anything, kind of like life...

There's always room for Dark Chocolate!
