Hi everyone.
I was inspired to create TORRAIN during my travels in Cambodia. I met the beautiful, gifted artisans that I currently work with while venturing through a night market.

Cambodia is one of the many places I've traveled to and have been inspired in. I've been designing, making jewelry, sewing and deconstructing clothing since i was a wee one. I grew up in Detroit, went to school in Boston then worked as a women's street wear designer in San Diego for five years. I recently moved to Portland to try my hand at my own line and so far, it's been treating me well... TORRAIN is only the beginning, stay tuned for more to come :-)
