I love everything old and things that are unwanted and what people have banished from their closets. Transforming these outlying pieces into something beautiful and wearable again is the best challenge.
I make clothing for people to feel the same way as I do when I wear a gorgeous frock. Transformed and whimsical.
I've worked for such labels as Isabel Toledo, Madison Marcus, Twig, Jamison, Express, and Robert Rodriguez. The further I went in the fashion industry I felt I was moving farther from the hand making aspect of my creativity and adding to the destruction of our planet. So, I decided to start OUTLYING. It's emphasis is on creativity, reused materials, hand crafting and all inhouse production, which is basically just me for now.
