Fabstract is a small rebellion against mass-produced and generic fast fashion.

Consisting of one of a kind and limited edition garments made from primarily vintage fabrics, each piece has a distinct aesthetic. Each garment is designed, drafted and handmade in studio in British Columbia, Canada.

Our carefully curated vintage selection has been hand picked, carefully mended and cleaned whenever necessary, steamed and pressed to perfection.
We feature not only restored but also reworked vintage, in addition to new designs. ‘Upcycling' only happens when necessary - preserving the authenticity and spirit of the vintage garment comes first and foremost.

Fabstract is brainchild of Valerie Nagy, who wears all the hats including designer, curator, seamstress, patternmaker, photographer, and more. Valerie was self-taught for many years before pursuing formal fashion study at Helen Lefeaux School of Fashion Design in Vancouver, British Columbia, later putting in five years at a renowned Vancouver vintage clothing boutique, handling all restorations and alterations. This experience provided an excellent base knowledge of 20th century vintage clothing and construction and many, many ideas.

Now based in beautiful Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, Fabstract is run from a modest sewing studio where literally all the magic happens. In amongst the mountains, in a tiny studio filled with it’s own landscape of vintage clothing, fabric, notions.. something different is being stitched.

I do my very best to ensure listings include accurate measurements and honest descriptions of items to ensure customer satisfaction, and recommend that buyers heed this information before purchasing.

A full refund for the item's purchase price will be issued upon receiving back the item in question (note this does not include original shipping price). For all returns with the exception of those due to a listing error on our part, the customer is responsible for return shipping costs. Shipping costs are non-refundable except in the rare case of misrepresentation of the item which I of course strive to avoid.

Please regard the sizing information carefully and be sure to know your own measurements to avoid improper fit. Keep in mind that there might be slight colour differences from your screen. Any wear or damage of an item will be described in listing to the best of my knowledge. Please send me a message prior to purchasing if you have any questions :)
