Sweet Marie came to fruition in November 2006 after a serendipitous encounter with a Neutral Milk Hotel song. I wanted something eponymous and personal, yet subtle- I am not designing for myself, but rather, people like me. My middle name is Marie, I make sweet-ass clothes. Thus, it was a perfect match.
Sweet Marie is dedicated to creating handmade clothing of unequivocal wit, femininity, and workmanship. She is a study in contrasts- both in who she is, and what she wears. Sweet Marie is the girl who is just as comfortable at a gallery opening as she is sharing whiskey with friends at the local dive. She wears bold geometric shapes on light chiffon, modern silhouettes with vintage materials, menswear with a feminine twist.
Sweet Marie believes that what she wears is an expression of who she is- if the clothes speak to you, why not let…
