"May my heart be kind, my mind FIERCE and my spirit brave."
Given jeans and a jean jacket to upcycle and a request to "make me look FIERCE", this look was created to enhance a woman's figure and empower her body. When clothes are fitted to your specific body shape it only accentuates all the right curves bringing out its unique beauty. Feedback I have gotten about my designs, "o I LOVE it, but I couldn't wear that bc I'm not skinny like you." (FYI - model's dress size 16)
I am about dressing a person's body - ANY BODY - shape, color, gender, size - its all about equal opportunity over here with the determining factor being LOVE! Self-LOVE is imperative. For as long as you have confidence to be FIERCE, then my designs are made with love specifically for you - literally - MADE TO MEASURE!
Also, these designs are all environmentally conscience so you will be doing your part in protecting and saving the planet: Sustainable clothing refers to fabrics derived from eco-friendly resources, such as sustainably grown fiber crops or recycled materials. Under the accordance of sustainability, recycled clothing upholds the principle of the "Three R’s of the Environment": Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, as well as the "Three Legs of Sustainability": Economics, Ecology, and Social Equity.
