Hilary Wilson Fahey's Profile

About

My name is Hilary, I’m 31 years old and I have been sewing for almost fourteen years now. My technical training came from working in the University of New Hampshire’s costume shop where my part time job turned into my passion. I am currently an adjunct faculty member and costume designer at Shasta College in Redding, CA.

With my sister Kaitlin's encouragement, I decided to start my Etsy shop because I love creating things and giving garments new life. I LOVE shopping at consignment, vintage, and used clothing stores. The combination of a good deal and the possibility of finding a real treasure makes the shopping experience so much more exciting. However, lots of items we find need a little or (in some cases) a lot of updating.

However, lots of items we find need a little or (in some cases) a lot of updating. So I started purchasing those treasures and collaborating with my sister to put a trendy spin on those unique and fabulous gently used items of clothing.

My items are one-of-a-kind creations, and I put A LOT of time into my craftsmanship. I also occasionally create garments from scratch and use unique fabric that I have collected over the years. Most recently I have been collecting great vintage finds (shoes and bags included) that don't need alterations. My garments are authentic vintage items 30 years old or older. As a costume designer I have years of experience researching vintage fashion, construction and manufacturing, and I am confident that I am selecting fantastic, true vintage items.

My items range from classic to trend-setting, they vary in size and shape, and they suit both work and play. Best of all, I intend on keeping my prices reasonable, that way anyone can stuff their closet with something truly unique.
