Each piece is handmade using vintage materials with a distinctly modern point of view, but also harkening back to days of time past using delicate linens, plaids, patchwork, as well as hand beading several of the pieces using glass beads taken from vintage gowns.
Our girl can easily transport herself from skateboarding in the city streets to the beautiful heathers of England, where the wild winds blow, and the drama of nature reigns supreme.
