This collection was inspired by my grandma Marcie. She was an incredible seamstress in her youth as shown by an iconic photo of her posing in her own creation. Although I never was fortunate enough to meet her, I like to think she is responsible for the passion of sewing both my mother and i possess. this collection was my way of carrying her legacy forward and modernizing her classic style. Many of the prints are original and one outfit even has the iconic image printed repeatedly on silk faille. learn more about the textiles and process below.
