About

No rush is the best rush.

SkinnySweats is a line of loungewear with a tailored fit, designed to be styled with a contemporary wardrobe. SkinnySweats is also playful ideas and experiments in design and craft. The main objective behind the brand is joy, which I hope to evoke with comfort, style, humour and fun. The SkinnySweats line is meant to feel amazing, but look good too. You can absolutely wear it out of the house.

The line is named after the Basic Skinny Sweats that were the one and only product in the beginning. SkinnySweats as a brand has evolved very slowly over the past few years to include everything you see here now. I believe in slow fashion- and this means many things to me. Sometimes it's about putting extra time and effort into a garment, and making it with details that can't be rushed. It's also about being slow to change and evolve, choosing quality over quantity, or making garments that have nothing to do with trends. Everything that is the opposite of fast fashion. Because haste makes waste. No rush is the best rush.

I like things that are funny, contradictory, complimentary, and seriously irreverent. I believe strongly in quality garment finishing to produce a high end looking product. Skinny Sweats is a pattern study on the same styles over time.. I develop and produce collections and new pieces thoughtfully, and release new work when it comes up.

As well as my Etsy shop- you can find my work on www.skinnysweats.com, at a handful of Canadian boutiques (find the information on my website) and I also take part in major shows like the OOAK in Toronto at least once a year.

I sincerely LOVE what I do, I hope my maker's joy translates into my work. I make all the brand patterns and samples, and am the sewer behind anything made to order. I have help from three Toronto manufacturers with a portion of the sewing of my collection. I am happy to be also making most of my fabric in Toronto with a small mill. Which has led me to work with an amazingly helpful small batch garment dyer, and now I get to choose my own colour stories - basically limitless possibilities, forever.

Stay tuned! I'm working on a sister brand to the mother brand that is SkinnySweats that will be launching late Fall 2016 in real life, and hopefully online not long after.

Lazy Is As Lazy Doesn't!
