About SkeletonCloset13

Sales 245
On Etsy since 2016

Skeletons in the Closet is an original clothing line handmade in Boston, MA. Every piece is designed, drafted and sewn by me, Sophie Kaplan.

As an artist as well as a fashion designer, I'm always looking for ways to combine my art and clothing, whether it's hand dyeing garments or getting my drawings printed onto fabric. Even when I'm not creating my own textiles, I love to mix different colors and types of materials to create depth and texture in my designs.

I get a lot of inspiration from the darker side of fashion, but I still love color and sparkle. My aesthetic is a part goth, a part psychedelic hippy, and a bit of flirty girly-girl thrown in as well.

I love to create clothing that is comfortable and feels good to wear, for all shapes and sizes, and I'm always happy to make custom garments to fit your exact size. Contact me for details.
