COSTUME Designer. Lover. Collector. Magic-Believer. Chocolate Eater.
I'm a designer, artist and teacher, but have the heart of a collector. I can't help but see beauty in everything- from a tattered old photograph, vintage glassware, or a piece from a local artist, they gleam back at me and beg to be gathered up and taken home. I'm addicted to travel- the colors, memories, and scents that the physical objects from these places possess. These things have been the focus for my inspiration, and how I start the process in creating the clothing and accessories created here.
My 16+ years of fashion industry knowledge, from working with the likes of Alexander McQueen, Target, Capezio, have given me a lot of perspectives on design and business. My couture garment construction techniques were acquired by working as a costumer on Broadway, and for TV and Film. I've gleaned wisdom, as well as being inspired by my students, while having taught at The Fashion Institute of Technology, Lawrence Technological University, and Miami Dade College. I now continue to teach fashion classes through my business, The Stitch n' Style Studio.
Drop A Line, Sweetheart!
