Where to start...

My education was basically focus in clothing but of course accessories and even upholstery are part of the career. I used to love making clothes and designing them but to make a living out of that is just hard; I found we people are cheap (sorry), we don't want to pay for good quality custom clothes when we can get them cheaper at a store and is perfectly understandable.

I feel that every one of my items is my way of reducing waste and promote eco friendly products. Most of the things you'll find at my store have recyclable material (it doesn't always mean it has been used, most of the times it was just saved from ending on a landfill), are repurposed, reusable and with different optional uses, and I always tried to make them easy to care and durable. All the recyclable materials I use are properly clean (professionally) to enhance and give durability to the product.

I am also a teacher for the city. I teach the basics of fashion design, from measuring, patterns to finishing an actual garment and of course how to create nice useful item like the ones you can find at my store.



Thanks for looking at my profile and if you have question about anything don't hesitate, I'll be glad to be of any help.


Have a wonderful life!!
