About My Work

Inspired by history- but not a re-creationist. Color, texture and ridiculously sumptuous fabrics inspire me.  I love natural fabrics and hand worked details.  My work here is is an exploration of the styles and construction of historical clothing with a focus on fancy dress attire. My gowns are inspired by the Era but not reproductions. Sometimes I throw in a modern twist- just to keep it interesting. Unlike fashion which is made in a generic format-  Every detail is imagined and executed with the wearer in mind.  

About Me 

I am the happiest when I am working with my hands.  My favorite time period is the late 18th century-The late 19th century is right behind it. I love vintage photobooths, collecting antique corsets and estate sales. I live and work in NYC.  

About The photos

The images of the gowns completes my work.   For me- wearing and being photographed in these garments is an intrinsic part of the design process.  As an artist- I need someone who can understand my creative process- often before I do.     For that I am eternally grateful for the work of the very talented Aimee Dodds.  Her attention to detail, support and patience is unmatched. Without Aimee I would not be able to share my love of historical clothing.  Thank you for everything Aimee
