A Rocky Start.
After graduating in 2009, I worked a couple of retail jobs that really dissatisfied me. I wanted to do something more with my degree. But I really didn't want to work for someone...I wanted to be my own boss. But I got sidetracked.
I left Philadelphia to move back home to VA to help my mom. In the process I lost some of my creativity and will power. But then she told me (like she's always told me) that I have real talent, and I was wasting it. She set up a sewing room for me, and has unofficially become my silent partner in all this. I'm so thankful for her everyday.
Now, I'm working everyday, 9-5. Setting myself a schedule is hard, but I manage to keep up with the work. Between fashion shows, having some clothes in a brick-and-mortar store, and Etsy, my business is growing and expanding everyday. Aphid Boutique comes from my name (Audra Phillips Designs) and the little logo is the cutest thing I've ever drawn!
I know that clothing can be restrictive, especially menswear, so I strive to resolve fit issues and make comfortable, well-fitting clothing. Plus I want them to have a little flair of drama, whether it's an open back, lacing or some other small detail. I strive for perfection, and hope that you can see the quality in every piece.
I've been drawing since I can remember, and when I was 9 I made the choice that fashion design was going to be my life. In 2009, I graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with my Bachelor's of Science degree in Fashion Design.
