About

It all began with just a little fear as motivation

I started this brand after I was diagnosed with choroidal melanoma. This was a tumor that was behind my retina. Luckily, I have recovered with both eyes intact, though the procedures I went through have left me blind in one eye. However, while I lay around the house with my eye taped into my face, I was surprised to find that one of the things I most worried about with the possibly of losing my sight was that I may not be able to sew again. I have been sewing since I was 10 years old, and I find joy in creating unique designs both for myself and others, so I promised myself that as I recovered, I would begin to create and share my designs with the world.
It was something that I had wanted to do for ages, but I never seemed to be able to motivate myself. Perhaps my title of "fear as motivation" is not quite accurate, as during my whole experience with cancer, I was honestly hardly afraid. I think however that it put things in perspective for me and I decided that there was no point in waiting around any more.
I had friends and family that consistently told me I should start selling my work to others, so here I go! A guilty pleasure of mine is being asked where I bought my outfit, and being able to hand someone my business card and give them my "elevator speech". Nothing gives me more pleasure then to see someone wearing and loving an item I have created.
So, thought I have been sewing most of my life but have never received what would be called formal training in either sewing or pattern making, I make things up as I go along, and continually challenge myself to get better. I get my inspiration from everywhere; movies, art work, hours upon hours of browsing the internet. I find that life itself is my biggest challenge and inspiration, thank you all for your support, and I hope you all enjoy my work!
So long story short, I want to make interesting well-made clothes and accessories, for interesting well made people!
