About Us

I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee (Business) and the Art Institute of Seattle (Fashion Design). I've been creating gowns since I was 7 years old (for Barbie) and appreciate the importance of fashion in our lives. Growing up with two sisters when money was tight, I remember having to fight for my favorite pieces of clothing and how much each one meant to me. My first "fashion" moment (at the age of 5), a pink and white leotard with my mom's leg-warmers, still informs how I make fabric and style choices regarding comfort and style. In that outfit, I knew I could do anything and look totally awesome doing it!

Clothes are an expression of yourself, and who you are, or the image you want to project, can change from day to day. I understand how the right piece of clothing gives you that extra bit of confidence and comfort. I am perfectly willing to collaborate with you on the garment or to have you choose from a selection of my designs. Either way, a unique and beautiful piece of clothing is created.

On your special day your gown should be a reflection of your individuality and beauty A custom-made garment is a perfect expression of yourself! Whether it is your wedding gown or your senior prom dress, each creation will receive the attention and time that will turn fabric into the jewel of your wardrobe. Every woman deserves to feel incredible in her dream gown - Whether you love to be noticed or just appreciate the subtle beauty of a well-made garment, I can create something gorgeous for you!
