About

I LOVE creating fun fashion, my creedo is that are way too many boring clothes in this world!!

Welcome to Avantegarb where my passion for designing OOAK wearable art with upcycled textiles is only surpassed by my adoration of comfortable, colorful garb that will make you feel AND look as unique on the outside as you are on the inside!!

SO enter into my little micro-cosmos here on Etsy.....everything you see I have made(well not the vintage tagged items).....It suits me to make things others do not, why be a sheep?
HERE you are encouraged to follow your own drummer, dress funky, dance with abandon, laugh too loud, make your own rules and stay out as late as you wish......My inspiration to create started long ago, in another realm, but has pulled me to New Orleans where uniqueness runs rampant and nonconformism is lauded....... not just by neophytes, but by all it's wacky, young at heart denizens!! It is truly an other-worldly experience and I consider myself lucky to be a part of it!

I am inspired by so many things here as costuming and play wear is at it's best at any given moment!! I predominately reuse and upcycle QUALITY vintage...and salvaged clothes and fabrics in my designs, as there are just so many things available that most folks call trash and would throw away.....in them I see the treasure of fresh designs and new styles waiting to be unleashed on fun-loving fashion devotees!!

I have been sewing since learning in 4-H when I was 10, my mother used to make our clothes when I was growing up(much to my chagrin, at the time!) But I have always been a clothes hound with a closet full, and I started "rethreading" long ago as I could not afford everything I wanted to own. In the past 9 years I have been selling my works at shows and markets and have had a very positive response to my vision of fashion. I also sell fabulous vintage clothing...(some things are just too amazing to change!)

ETSY offers the original crafter a fantastic venue and truely hope to find new freinds, fashion fiends and fellow crafters who also appreciate the unique fashions I offer.

Thanks for checking my stuff out and I hope you keep an eye out for many evolving designs that I create.......each one unique and designed, conceptualized, sewn and serged by my two little hands.

    I love clothes and this has translated into a wonderful career for me, selling at art markets and here on Etsy........I adore easy fitting garb with lots of color and movement, fun stuff that others will compliment and covet I am self taught, learn more everytime I start a new project , though I have been sewing since I was 7 years old......and pride myself on quality, each piece I design, sew and serge to be a hierloom quality piece that you could pass down to your kids if you want!!
