About

🌸 Hi, I'm Clara
I'm a trained Fashion designer and worked at amazing companies for 12 years since graduating in 2007, but I became tired with how quickly clothing became dispensable and how unethical the entire cycle was. So, I decided to leave and turned my 12 year hobby collecting and upcycling vintage into a business as well as working on other passion projects.

🌸 Philosophy & Sustainability
I believe that fashion should be circular. In a nutshell, this means that any item of clothing that is produced, should be intended to remain in society for as long as possible...and not thrown away simply because it is ‘not on trend’.

🌸 Inspiration
I have forever been inspired by Film. I often refer to 'The Virgin Suicides' and my main muse, ‘Ophelia’ which is the painting by Sir John Everett Millais. I usually have her in my mind when I am upcycling slip dresses and creating something totally whimsical and dreamy.
This also reflects in the vintage that I select and offer. I love all things feminine and romantic, this can be across simple items of clothing such as a simple blouse with a cute collar or a diaphanous 1970s dress.
