Her designs have now become available worldwide, while maintaining sustainable business practices, and helping to promote the eco-fashion movement. As a designer, her mission is to live and work creatively, and sustainably. By using natural, reclaimed and vintage materials, she is able to create high quality, contemporary design with little need for the earth’s finite resources.
Brehan’s passion for both design and adventure created a journey in search of things to make new. Vast arrays of mixed media, both precious and non-precious, are carefully selected, draped on a dress form and manipulated, to create each original interpretation of modern luxury. Intricate hardware, silk ribbon, game pieces, and recycled bullet casing charms are a few examples of the resources that become part of her inspiration during the design process. Each line reflects Brehan’s vivid imagination, fascination with nature, and stories told by cast off trinkets. This particular combination of vintage elegance, with an anti-conformist attitude, is unique to Brehan’s style.
History
Brehan’s passion for design began at a young age, with an appreciation for art and design. She had the privilege of growing up in a community that promoted local artists and personal creativity. She by began making jewelry, sketching clothing and dancing in the local ballet, as a young child. By 2002, these interests evolved into an education in New York City, beginning at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her passion for design led her to an early career in the fashion and accessories industry in New York, while earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in fashion design. Her private collection of vintage and antique jewelry also became more refined, during frequents to flea markets and antique fairs around New England. After graduating, Brehan began developing an original line of sportswear and aprons made from vintage materials, as well as a small line of jewelry. The company started small, with a few pieces in one retail outlet , and has evolved to include handmade work in specialty boutiques throughout the United States, and worldwide, and on The Web.
