Locals Only || Spring 2018 (Click here to shop)

Locals Only was produced using a limited quantity of upcycled upholstery fabric sourced locally at one of New Englands infamous mill style fabric stores.   Created in a limited run- only one of each look is available for purchase.  Some designs are available for custom order by request depending on materials.  All designs can be created in a comparable fabric with exact prints subject to change.  All of our floral fabrics were hand appliquéd with flowers cut by hand from remnant floral fabric from the 1980's.  Each floral appliqué is secured using an intricate x style stitch design round each appliqué permitter.  This entire collection is accented with hand crafted ceramic buttons produced in partnership with our sister company In God We Trust Ceramics and hand stitched on with matching embroidery thread in our arrow style pattern stitch.    

faux: F/W 2016 (Click here to shop)

Created using two textiles designed by hand in my Rhode Island studio, FAUX is an explosion of color and texture.  Inspired by 60's music and summer of love culture, FAUX is the breakout line that began to shape my voice as a designer.  Using a combination of organic cotton, poly-cotton sateen and sheer polyester organza, layers of fabric and faux fur accents combine into layers of interesting fabric and color combinations.  

Urban Antiquity SS/15

My first collection presented at Styleweek Northeast.  Created using only upcycled lace remnants, vintage curtains, and polyester tulle.  A  combination of hand strung pearl necklaces and ceramic necklaces produced in partnership with our sister company In God We Trust Ceramics.  This collection was entirely experimental and one of a kind- my first attempt at producing a cohesive collection for runway presentation.  With no formal sewing experience, most garments were draped or reflect my first attempts at achieving fit and drape.  Several tones of white and ivory lace are complimented by pops of gray fabric and vintage pink tulle.  A quintessentially feminine and undeniably chic interpretation of what femininity feels like.
