Quality, classic designs using colour and unique details.

I started my shop in 1987 with a roll of khaki canvas and some unique tapestries and chintz and created a reversible coat. For the next 18 years I would have made over 10,000 coats. Many colour choices of pigment dyed canvasses and hundreds of tapestries were introduced regularly over the years.
When the quality of the tapestries and chintz I was looking for were not being milled anymore I changed the make up of my line. I started to make interesting jackets to wear. It was all about the little jacket and table top dressing! My styles are classic and it is very important to me that my customer feels confident wearing my designs.
I have always loved colour and have used as much as possible in the line. Of course there is always my black and white basics throughout the year. My styles of clothing can be worn all seasons. New fabrics are introduced and made in the styles as the seasons change.

I have kept canvas in the line for 23 out of the 25 years in business. I have re-introduced cotton canvas to the new line for 2012. It is a wonderful cotton fabric that is durable and comes in many colours, 10 for 2012!. Made up into a coat, the cotton canvas breaks the wind and the sweater adds the warmth.The cotton canvas makes a great jacket, coat, skirt and pant in any style. The cotton canvas is soft and breathes which makes it a cool fabric to wear. I pre-wash and pre-shrink every canvas piece before it is cut into new designs. The styles are easy to wear and the fabric is easy care, wash and hang to dry. I have introduced linens every spring and summer, also pre-washed and pre-shrunk. For 2012 the linen is in winter white, a shabby chic look. The styles made in this fabric remind me of the classy Katherine Hepburn. I hope it would be something she would wear!
The Quality and durability of my clothing and the timeless styles along with customer service has been important to me for 25 years and has earned the trust of my client. With modern technology changing I hope to open up an on line shopping network along with my show list for the year.

I look forward to many more years of new ideas and creativity!
I love it when the customers are game for a fashion show in front of the mirror. I especially like it when a style and colour is so flattering that the passing crowd compliments the model in the mirror. It means I am doing my job well!

Thank-you to all my valued customers in the past 25 years and those who may be a new customer next year!

Remember, you never waste our time when you are curious enough to try on. It is a compliment to our clothing and me as a designer.
