About

The Bohemian Dream; In-depth

My name is Lucia Flores (aka Lucie), a passionate Eco-Friendly fashion designer and artist, born and raised in the Netherlands. I love everything eco-friendly, organic and vegan. I'm obsessed with animals, healthy cooking and Star Wars! In my free time, I love to play Xbox, listen to System of a Down and teach myself how to play guitar. I also paint and draw as much as I can!

I grew up in a Hippie environment, as a child of free-spirited parents, with no boundries and limitless ways to express my creativity through any kind of art. As a child, I went to Waldorf school where I was taught to learn with heart, soul and hands, to truly find my identity and place in this world.

The Story behind The Bohemian Dream

Since childhood I knew what I wanted to become, a fashion designer, just like my grandmother. She has been my biggest inspiration and she has taught me real craftsmanship from as far as I can remember. In 2009 I started my studies on a private Fashion Academy in Breda, The Netherlands, to gain the fundamental knowledge surrounding Fashion Design and to extend my artistic skills further.

I opened my first business in 2010. In the few years that I worked as a fashion designer I realized it's not all about the new brands and the newest trends. One of the reasons why I started designing clothing made from recycled materials was really simple; I didn't want to be part of the fashion industry as it exists today. Why would you buy something new if there's already so much beautiful clothing around? Throwing away usable clothing and replacing it with something new just really didn't made sense to me. It pollutes our earth and with that we are polluting ourselves. I wanted to make a change.

I've always loved vintage and second hand treasures and recycled everything I owned (not only clothing, but everything else as well). For my future career I decided to solely use recycled, organic and fairtrade materials only. The Bohemian Dream was born in 2013! I have been creating my collections with love and passion, it has become a lifestyle. It's not a job, my work is a part of me. I see creating one of a kind upcycled garments as an extension of myself, a way to show who I am as an individual.

All my clothing is One of a Kind, especially made for free-spirited women. I work in a pet and smoke free home studio. I wash all clothing, fabric and lace with organic detergent before I use it. I strive to create high quality, unique clothing from the best materials available! All materials come from vintage markets, the goodwill or the salvation army. 99% of the money that I invest on my materials for my business goes straight towards charity.

My work reflects not only an optional technique but also my personal lifestyle, values and goals. Altering clothing and accessories has changed my view on fashion and gave me the opportunity to free my mind on creativity, applying my vision into something existing. Helping the environment, as well the goodwill by investing my money for materials into charity, gives me a lot of satisfaction! The Bohemian Dream is my life, my love and my happiness.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my bio. I appreciate it a lot! If you have any questions whatsoever about my designs or process, I would gladly hear from you!

Sending you my Hugs and my Love,
Lucia Flores

Frequently asked questions

What does "One Size" mean?

What "One Size" means is that the garment can be worn by a variety of sizes. This is because a garment could be made out of a very stretchy material, is oversized or swing with an elastic band or smocked upper bust. Whether a "One Size" garment will suit you depends on your preferences, would you like the garment to be fitted on your body or loose fitting/oversized? Always check the measurements mentioned in the description. There is always a maximum for a "One Size" garment, which will always be mentioned in the item description.

Can you reproduce a garment in a different size?

No, all my garments are "one of a kind" made from recycled/vintage fabric and clothing only! I can't reproduce a garment exactly, but it is possible to place a custom request for a similar design. I will always do my best and work closely with you to design the unique garment you desire.

Do you take custom orders for Plus Sizes?

Yes! I design custom garments in all sizes! Please provide all your measurements with your request.

Do you do Wholesale?

Yes, I accept Wholesale inquiries. Please contact me via Etsy convo or thebohemiandream{at!}hotmail{dot!}com. You can find more information about Wholesale in my Additional Policies.
