Welcome to vbot. clothing & accessories! Local MTL designer and textile enthusiast <3
Welcome one and all to my etsy shop about me section! I'm glad you've made it this far and are so intruiged to get to know me. So without further adieu here are a few fun facts about me:
In 2010 after 5 years of devotion and long hours of studying I finally graduated from ACAD (Alberta College of Art and Design) majoring in Fibre arts. Since then I have been practicing as a craftsperson/designer in my new home Montreal, Quebec. Still working and living in good ol' MTL, I've learned to appreciate/ be inspired by the cities innovative lifestyles, art and people.
I decided to form vbot. clothing & accessories as a means to fulfil my desire to create fashionable wearable art pieces, as well as to work at something that I truly enjoyed and loved. Honestly, the "real work" world never really appealed to me and so I created my own niche within the crafting community. I now happily work in my studio creating works which incapsulates my design aesthetic and artistic philosophy.
My design does not focus on one kind of perspective, but comes to me instinctively. I allow the materials I come across inspire my creative process and therefore have no direct theme. With that said, my current design aesthetic is influenced mainly by objects such as cameos, minerals/gems, woven structures, the occult, metal types, and my own fashion style. Other influences which are also apart of my design aesthetic are vintage settings, antiquity, sustainability and up-cycling.
My main goal is to create fashion jewelry that is not only pleasurable to wear, but that is also affordable and tasteful through its simplicity and design. Everything in my shop is designed and manufactured by myself so each piece has a part of the "artists hand" within it.
My future self would love to master every art form and have a hand in every kind of crafting, but right now this is my vision and I'm going to stick to it till the next inspiring object comes into view.
So please visit my shop and continue to support local and handmade designers!
